Late last month, I wrote about Facebook registering the domain names fbpac.org and fbpac.us and I was the first to speculate that the social networking giant was planning to form a political action committee.
It was a rumor that turned out to be true, as a spokesman for Facebook announced the company was starting its own political action committee called “FB PAC”.
Now this week, it appears as if development of the official FB PAC website is underway, after Facebook officially filed (Committee ID: C00502906) with the FEC on September 30.
When you type FBPAC.org or FBPAC.us into your web browser, you are taken to a login page located at https://www.fbpac.org/pac/wp-login.php.
Last week, neither address resolved to a web page.
According to the 5-page FEC filing, the committee’s official domain will be: FBPAC.org.
It appears Facebook will be using WordPress as its publishing platform.
While there isn’t much to report or see at the site yet, it’s a sign that it’s being built.
