Facebook is creating its own team of foreign diplomats.

The San Jose Mercury News reported that the company is hiring a network of ambassadors to represent it with foreign governments and cultures.

Facebook's new global policy team will monitor local political landscapes and will act as a multi-lingual, TV-friendly communicator abroad.

The company says it wants to have better relationships with regulators and policymakers across Europe and around the world.
