Facebook on Monday said it would train people by opening three new centres in Europe
The social media giant said it was determined to training one million people as part of its drive to show its contribution to the bloc over the next two years.
The U.S. company said it would open three “community skills hubs” in Spain, Poland and Italy. It has faced Regulatory pressure in Europe over challenges ranging from privacy to antitrust
It said it would also invest 10 million euros (12.2 million dollars) in France through its artificial intelligence research facility.
“People are worried that the digital revolution is leaving people behind and we want to make sure that we’re investing in digital skills to get people the skills they need to fully participate in the digital economy,” Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s chief operating officer, told Reuters.
“The community hubs will offer training in digital skills, media literacy and online safety to groups with limited access to technology, including old people, the young and refugees,’’ she said.
Facebook said this in view of its commitment to train one million people and business owners by 2020.
