Facebook is expanding its Community Manager Certification program globally, making it available in seven new languages.
Back in October of last year, Facebook launched the Facebook Community Manager Certification as part of its Certified Community Manager program, which included a range of online courses through Facebook Blueprint.
The courses within the program were build specially for community managers from different kinds of companies – i.e. agencies, brands, educational organizations, NGOs, etc. to help help build and grow their communities, and offer the right kind of support.
They covered a range of topics, like defining and establishing a community, developing community strategies and processes, making strategic content decisions for a community, engaging and moderating a community, and measuring and analyzing community success.
When it rolled out, the program was only available in English, but now Facebook is expanding it “to give more people the opportunity to use the content, and eventually earn a certification.”
As of this month, the Community Manager program will now be available in several new languages – Arabic, French, German, Indonesian, Portuguese, Spanish and Thai.
Community managers from around the world are encouraged to participate – and access the newly-launched public study group (English only), which they can use to “collaborate with peers and start the learning journey by taking the online courses on Facebook Blueprint.”
It starts here.
