Facebook holding forums for Hispanic small businesses

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – Facebook held a workshop for New Mexico Hispanic small businesses as part of a nationwide push to attract Latino-owned companies to use its tools.

Facebook and the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce hosted the forum Friday in Albuquerque days after the social media giant announced it was building a new data center in the nation’s most Latino state.

A Facebook small business expert gave a presentation on the latest apps.

The Menlo Park, California-based Facebook is holding similar seminars across the country for Hispanic Heritage Month.

Facebook announced earlier this month it had selected New Mexico for a new data center over Utah.

The largely Hispanic village of Los Lunas, New Mexico, agreed to give up all property taxes for 30 years in exchange for annual payments starting at $50,000.
