Which Think Tank Will Facebook's Zuckerberg Join?

Facebook Co-Founder Mark Zuckerberg is reportedly in the process of co-founding a political advocacy group that will push for a variety of legislative reforms.

As Zuckerberg gets more political, will he embrace the think tank machine?

Although Zuckerberg is not currently affiliated with any think tanks, Facebook's Chief Operating Officer (COO) Sheryl Sandberg is.

Sandberg, a former Chief of Staff of the Treasury Department under Bill Clinton, sits on the Advisory Council of The Hamilton Project at the Brookings Institution.  She also serves on the board of the Center for Global Development (CGD).

Should Zuckerberg decide to embrace any think tanks, he will not be the lone billionaire to do so.  Here is a previous Think Tank Watch post on think tanks that billionaires favor.
