Social media giant Facebook is set to launch its Facebook Journalism Project News Accelerator in Australia, in partnership with the Walkley Foundation. The initiative is aimed at assisting media companies to increase their revenue from social media, and it follows the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission’s landmark inquiry into digital platforms. Facebook will also provide funding for a pilot program aimed at improving the media literacy skills of high school students.
