This week I was honored to join the first meeting of the Asia Pacific News Literacy Group, a part of the Facebook Journalism Project. The group brought together 40 experts from the Asia Pacific’s newsrooms, publishers, education institutions and third-party organizations to discuss and identify initiatives that will help people be more discerning consumers, creators and sharers of media.
The Asia Pacific is home to world’s largest mobile and internet population, and yet has some of the most connected and least connected consumers in the world. As a platform, Facebook wants people to have meaningful conversations, to be informed and to be connected to each other. We care a great deal about creating a healthy news ecosystem and supporting quality journalism, and we know that there is more to do on and off our platform.
