Facebook's Zuckerberg to Enter US PoliticsSubmitted by Allegory on Tue, 03/26/2013 - 09:33
The 28-year-old billionaire is forming a political campaign group that is expected to focus initially on liberalising the US immigration and visa system.
Mr Zuckerberg, who has previously donated $100 million (£65 million) of his $13 billion fortune to the state school system in his native New Jersey, is said to be ready to use another $20 million on the new venture.
Work on the group will reunite him with Joe Green, his room-mate at Harvard University, who also went on to be a successful technology entrepreneur.
The pair are courting other financial backers.
Technology firms such as Mr Zuckerberg's social networking giant have complained that America's strict migration controls prevent them from recruiting talented foreigners and overseas graduates.
