Posted by Axios on Friday, June 22, 2018 05:02:51Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is on a media blitz of sorts to highlight the company’s latest acquisition of Creators, a nonprofit organization that helps people find jobs in creative industries.
The company announced the acquisition this morning, but it’s already made a splash in the media.
BuzzFeed News tweeted a headline from today’s blog post announcing the acquisition.
The news comes on the heels of another recent acquisition of a nonprofit that focuses on the arts, including Disney and Warner Bros.
In fact, Zuckerberg was asked about the deal this morning on a CNN panel.
He said that “there’s no doubt that there’s a lot of great organizations in the world” that need to be connected to creative industries, including “Creators.”
We can’t build a business by just selling products. “
The core value of our business is the people who make our products.
“This is a business that, if it were not for people who want to make their own stuff, it would be a very, very small business. “
That’s a really, really interesting question to ask.””

Zuckerman said that the acquisition of Creative Cloud, the nonprofit that makes the app that connects people with job placement services, is part of a broader effort to “help entrepreneurs in the arts and the creative industries.”
“We’re really excited to have been part of this.
The ability to help people find creative jobs that align with their passions and interests is incredibly important,” he said.
“I know it’s a difficult path, but we believe in helping people find success and happiness.”
