Facebook to Further Aid Black-Owned Businesses With New App Feature

The tech giant has also announced a $40 million USD grant to support the U.S. Black community.

Facebook users in the U.S. can now easily search for any Black or minority-owned establishments in their area with the company’s new subsection in the app called “Business Nearby.” This update is a part of the tech giant’s ongoing initiative to support entrepreneurs and small businesses in the Black community.

“The best way to find Black-owned businesses is in the Businesses Nearby tool, where you can browse offerings and click through to message them directly,” the company stated in a press release. “Self-designation is completely voluntary – Page admins can choose to skip, edit or remove diverse-owned business information at any time.”

Additionally, the platform has also allocated $40 million USD in grants on top of its previous $100 million USD donation to support Black-owned businesses, creators and nonprofits. Businesses with less than 50 employees can now apply for a grant online.

Head on over to Facebook’s website for more information about its current initiatives. In case you missed it, Mark Zuckerberg has merged Messenger with Instagram DMs.
