FACEBOOK’S NEW PROGRAM TO HELP SMALL BUSINESSES
Over the past year, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg embarked on a YEAR OF TRAVEL, visiting communities across the country — some of which are doing well and others that are struggling. In an effort to help small business owners, Facebook is announcing a new multi-city program for small business owners focused on providing support for small businesses and digital skills training for people.
Katherine Shappley, Director of Facebook North America’s Small Business Team, joins us to explain how this new program can help create jobs, provide services and help businesses grow in their community. Today, 70 million businesses use Facebook to connect with customers. Find out how this new program can help many small business owners receive the training necessary to help them grow.
