Social media giant, Facebook has embarked on different measures to keep people safe by way of stopping misinformation and supporting global health experts. In addition, Facebook announced that is investing $100 million to help 30,000 small businesses in over 30 countries where it operates.

According to the company, its focus has always been to keep people safe and informed by making sure everyone has accurate information.
“In recent weeks, we have seen inspiring examples of individuals and groups helping each other. People across the globe are stepping up, rising to the enormous challenge in front of us.

Teams across the company are working every day to help businesses, and are looking at additional ways to host virtual training – and will have more to share in the coming weeks.
Facebook says it’s finding more ways to help people connect and learn to use technology through Blueprint and free e-learning training program.
“Whatever happens next, we will be working to help businesses weather this storm. Please keep safe and look out for those around you,” the company said.
