In a recent blog post, Facebook announced, “We know that your business may be experiencing disruptions resulting from the global outbreak of COVID-19. We’ve heard that a little financial support can go a long way, so we are offering $100M in cash grants and ad credits to help during this challenging time.”
Small businesses around the world can use all the help they can get during the coronavirus pandemic that’s wreaking havoc on so many countries’ industries. Facebook’s move to hand out $100 million worth of grants and advertisement credits will lend some relief, but we’ll just have to wait and see how much aid this will truly provide for struggling small businesses worldwide.
