iPoliticsLive, Facebook Canada announce partnership for Facebook Journalism Project

iPoliticsLive and Facebook Canada announced Thursday they are partnering to expand iPoliticsLive’s reach and help promote media literacy in Canada, as part of the Facebook Journalism Project.
Through the project, which launched in January, Facebook aims to establish stronger relationships with the news industry internationally in order to achieve a number of goals. Those objectives include supporting independent media, assisting in the development of new storytelling formats, advancing news literacy and combatting the spread of false news and hoaxes on Facebook, among others.
The new partnership between iPoliticsLive and Facebook Canada marks the social network’s most recent step to meet those goals and represents its most extensive collaboration with a Canadian media organization to date.
iPoliticsLive President Andrew Beattie called the partnership a “game-changer.”
