Chris Hughes, is one of Co-Founder of Facebook, American Entrepreneur and also was the coordinator of online organizing for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign on My.BarackObama.com, the campaign’s online social networking website.
He has owned the “The New Republic” magazine on Friday and now become publisher and editor-in-chief of the nearly 100-year old magazine which covers American politics. And, he will use his Digital Technology expertise in order to raises The New Republic magazine on both political and technical platform.
And, he has also revealed his plans for TNR in a letter on Friday:
“Most of us get our news from social networks, blogs, and daily aggregators. The web has introduced a competitive, and some might argue hostile, landscape for long, in-depth, resource-intensive journalism. But as we’ve seen with the rise of tablets and mobile reading devices, it is an ever shifting landscape — one that I believe now offers opportunities to reinvigorate the forms of journalism that examine the challenges of our time in all their complexity. Although the method of delivery of important ideas had undergone drastic change over the past 15 years, the hunger for them has not dissipated.”
Chris Hughes co-founded Facebook in 2004 at Harvard with his then- roommates Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg and Dustin Moskovitz.
