The opening by Facebook of its offices in Nigeria has borne its first fruits. In fact, according to an announcement made by the “TechCrunch” platform, the engineers of the social network have developed an application that will be used in the country in the field of education. This tool called “Sabee” aims to promote exchanges between students and educators. According to the first explanations, the application will allow those who want to know how to get in touch with those they know.
“In Nigeria there are 50 million students, but only 2 million educators. With this little initial test, we hope to understand how we can help educators create communities that make education accessible to all. We are eager to learn from our first testers and decide what we are going to do from there, ”said Emeka Okafor, Product Manager at Facebook.
