Facebook Introduces Journalism Project to Support Journalism and News Literacy
Facebook said in a blog post:
At Facebook our mission is to connect the world, including connecting people with the information they want and need. That’s why we place such value on journalism: it gives us facts and ideas in order to understand society, and better understand each other.
The project will work in these three ways:
- Collaborative Development of News Products: Facebook is working to collaborate with other news partners to promote their product.
- Training and Tools for Journalists: Facebook is also introducing the news resources for news publishers. For that reason Facebook has also introduced training session in 9 languages with certification programs via Poynter Institute for Media. Facebook has also made CrowdTangle free to partners.
- Training and Tools for Everyone: Facebook is also working to collaborate with organizations to better understand and promote news literacy both on and off our platform.
