Manila’s finest creators and influencers gathered in the first Facebook for Creators Philippines workshop.
Eighty creators, including the Guerrero siblings Ranz Kyle and Niana; inspirational guru, author and lay preacher Bo Sanchez; actor-TV host Robi Domingo; and vlogger and Viva recording artist behind the hit song “Kakaibabe” Donnalyn Bartolome joined the event.
The workshop helped creators learn more about how they could grow their community with video, share best practices for managing their online presence, and new tools for monetization and engagement on Facebook.
“We want to ship love for creators and let them know that we want to help them build their audience on Facebook,” said Anna Rodriguez-de la Cruz, Facebook’s Strategic Partnerships lead for Entertainment, Philippines and Singapore. ”We are proud to support the creator community by teaching them how to connect with their fans by using our engagement tools and also to enable them to build a business with us through ad breaks and other monetization tools.“
The Facebook for Creators workshop is part of a series launched in the Asia Pacific region that also recently brought together creators from Australia, Indonesia, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
The workshops focused on supporting creators in building their community on Facebook with insights on how people are engaging with content across multiple surfaces, and demonstrated the tools available at their fingertips for engaging their audiences.
