One of the pillars for the Facebook Journalism Project is to provide tools and training for journalists.

Currently, we offer our Safety Tips for journalists which we are now making available as a free eLearning course today through Blueprint, Facebook’s global training program. This course will show journalists how to keep their accounts secure to help them stay safe online and protect their sources and contacts.

Our eLearning courses were inspired by conversations with the news industry and since April 2017, more than 100,000 participants around the globe have taken the courses through our online journalist training program.

The Facebook Safety for Journalists course is currently available in English, with plans to expand to 13 additional languages in the coming months. If you’d like to be notified when more languages are available, you can sign up for our newsletter here.
