The social media giant has joined forces with the National Federation of Independent Businesses and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to help U.S.-based small businesses grow and create more jobs by using Facebook. The initiative is intended to teach small businesses how to use Facebook to generate new customers, retain existing ones and build an online community through things like buying display ads targeting specific markets as well as other cost-free measures.
Starting in January, 200,000 businesses around the country will get at least $50 of free advertisement credits to be used on Facebook. The company plans to provide more details on the program soon.
