The live webcast also comes as Facebook steps up its efforts to deepen its ties in Washington. The company has been hiring politicians from both parties to play executive, legal, policy and communication roles.

COO Sheryl Sandberg is a former Clinton administration official. Former White House National Economic Council chief of staff Marne Levine was appointed as vice president of global public policy last June.
