ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Facebook is typically used for keeping up with out-of-town friends and posting list updates, but the social media giant has also taken on a role of helping small businesses – including right here in New Mexico.


Albuquerque was picked by Facebook to participate in its Community Boost, in which local businesses were given tips and resources to help thrive in an increasingly digitalized and interconnected world.

For the latest edition of Eye on New Mexico, Erica Zucco sits down with Facebook staff and the owner of a local bakery to discuss the initiative and how it's helping to better connect businesses with their customers, in addition to the social media platform fostering a new way to look for prospective jobs. 

Also a part of the discussion: A new digital marketing certificate that Facebook is collaborating with CNM on, as well as new coding programs for students. 

Watch the above video for more.
