Facebook Hires Former GOP Consultant For Election Team

Former GOP social media consultant George Alafoginis will join Facebook's 2012 campaign team to focus on advertising efforts.

Alafoginis most recently worked for the consulting group New Media Strategies, where a pictorial bio describes him as a "crowd surfer" and a "jetsetter" who has celebrated two birthdays while at the firm. Alafoginis also previously worked for the Republican National Committee as deputy director for Online Strategy & Technology Deployment.

Facebook has launched a range of Election 2012 features, including a partnership with Politico, a presidential debate with NBC, and a politics webpage.

Facebook also conducted an analysis of reaction to this week's State of the Union speech.
