He was as Deputy Prime Minister, formerly Britain’s second most powerful but often aquiesced to The Prime Minister, David Cameron’s party decision during the coalition government in the UK. However now, he has almost gone from the second-in-charge of Downing Street to that of Second-in-charge of Silicon Valley. In fact his new position will see both he and his boss Mark Zuckerberg possibly becoming Silicon Valley’s most powerful people, in charge of decisions that touch 3.6 billion people worldwide in using the Meta ‘Horizon’ platform in the Metaverse..
Mark Zuckerberg has elevated Sir Nick to president of global affairs at Meta, the company that used to be known as Facebook, where he will be in charge of “all policy matters.”.
Clegg will also have influence over choices affecting some of the most widely used web services. Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and the virtual reality headset producer Oculus, as well as its associated platform Horizon, are all owned by Meta.
Each month, a total of 3.59 billion individuals utilise at least one of its platforms, amounting to roughly half of the world’s population.
He played a key role in the formation of the oversight board, which was established in 2020 to make judgments outside of Facebook’s corporate leadership.
Meta’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, expressed his desire for the former Liberal Democrat leader to serve as a “senior leader at the level of myself” who could lead and represent the firm on policy concerns around the world.
Clegg will be entrusted with guiding Meta through a challenging moment as regulators and lawmakers prepare tighter restrictions on the company’s dominance, with some advocating for its break-up.
