In 2018, Facebook partnered with SPJ to train a network of professionals to teach Facebook Tools for Journalists at conferences, workshops and newsrooms around the country. Facebook and SPJ are committed to creating opportunities for journalists everywhere to learn about the ways Facebook tools can help create and share incredible works of journalism, as well as engaging the public in the stories about their communities.

Carolyn Purcell will be our trainer. She is an Emmy Award-winning producer and senior executive producer with more than 20 years of experience in network, cable and local news and legal journalism. She is currently director of editorial, programming and operations for Verizon’s hyper-local FiOS1 News networks. Carolyn is also president of Sweet P Media, a multi-platform content consulting and talent coaching company.
The Facebook Journalism Project was created in January 2017 to ensure that quality news thrives on Facebook. FJP focuses on three pillars: collaborative development of new products; tools and trainings for newsrooms; and tools and trainings for people.
