Behind Facebook’s Ambitious Plan to Train 1 Million U.S. Small Business Owners by 2020
Facebook Friday announced a goal of training 1 million small business owners in the U.S. on digital skills by 2020. Director of business education Amy Brooks revealed in a Newsroom post that a study by Korn Ferry predicted that the shortage of skilled labor in the U.S. could result in 85.2 million unfilled jobs by 2030, and Facebook wants to do its part to help reverse the skills gap. The social network introduced its Facebook Community Boost digital training program last November, initially aiming to visit 30 cities in the U.S. in 2018, with eight more stops added to the tour in March. On Friday, Facebook announced that Community Boost will now reach 50 U.S. cities by year-end.
