Facebook Launches $10m Leadership Drive For Group Creators

Facebook (FB.O) launched a community leadership program on Friday that will award $10 million in total to more than 100 people who have successfully built groups on the social network as part of its push to create “meaningful” interactions.


The initiative, announced at a Facebook Communities Summit in London, will give five people with a track record in creating groups up to $1 million to fund a project, Facebook’s Jennifer Dulski said.

Another 100 leaders from around the world will receive up to $50,000 each, she said in an interview.

“We are looking for communities that provide meaning to the people that are in them, we are looking for initiatives that drive positive impact, and we are looking for communities that have both online and offline components,” said Dulski, Facebook’s head of groups and community.

Facebook’s Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said last June that the company’s new mission was “to bring the world closer together”, and he set a goal of helping one billion people join “meaningful communities” built around hobbies, neighbors, churches, pets and the like.

The focus on groups came after the social network, which has 1.4 billion daily active users, had been criticized for its role in the distribution of so-called fake news.
