Facebook is getting into the business of small business! Earlier today they announced a new program called Facebook Community Boost.

This program is aimed at helping US small businesses grow and equipping more people with the digital skills they need to compete in the new economy.

Facebook comments, “Facebook Community Boost was developed based on requests from the small business community that Facebook spend more time in their cities and provide more training. We’re just getting started, and are pleased to partner with community leaders to learn where we can help.”

According to the press release the program will visit 30 US cities in 2018, including Houston, St. Louis, Albuquerque, Des Moines and Greenville, South Carolina. Facebook will work with local organizations to provide digital skills and training for people in need of work, advise entrepreneurs how to get started, and help existing local businesses and nonprofits get the most out of the internet.
