[liberationtech] Facebook: Building Global Community - What's your response to Mark Zuckerberg?

I invite everyone to read and comment on Mark Zuckerberg's important
"Building Global Community" letter:

This is a special Facebook Group I've created to connect lots of
disparate communities for a unified conversation that I will share
with my contacts at Facebook.

You'll find a link to his letter and posts organized by the five key
questions Mark asks and posts to share media reports and more:

Or jump straight to his letter:

Also, while I don't have my first tele meeting with a foundation on
this until next week, now seems like a good time to share
E-Democracy's draft proposal for Local Civic Facebook Groups:

Zuckerberg's letter highlights the absolutely vital role of "engaged
leaders" creating "meaningful groups." E-Democracy's magic mix is
supporting YOU - those leaders - in local communities working to
create local community and civic life Facebook Groups that foster
inclusive and supportive local online communities that foster civic
engagement and informed communities. So, if you want to add your city
to the list of the 22 cities with volunteer interest, email me -
clift at - with "Civic Facebook Groups" in the subject
line. We drafted most of this proposal in December, so we are ecstatic
that Facebook's next mission is so well aligned with our scrappy work.
