France is "lagging behind in terms of digital competitiveness" compared with its european neighbours, says the u.s. firm, based on the results of a study commissioned to the institute Ipsos. According to this study, which cites the agency Eurostat, France is ranked 21st among european countries on the share of online sales by SMES. "82% of French people aged 16 years and over bought at least once online year, but only 16% of French SMES selling online", said to AFP, the boss of Facebook for southern Europe Laurent Solly, trying to contribute to fill this "gap".

$ 100 million of grants to the SMES

"25% of bosses of SMALL and medium businesses say they have a lack of skills in the face of the digital transformation. If these people have a very poor digital competence, we must provide solutions", he continued. The giant of social networks is now deploying a new tool, called "Facebook Shops", which allows brands to create a "store". The SME users will have the option to pay for ads that direct consumers to this kind of "showcase" custom".

Facebook had also announced in march a program of donations of $ 100 million to help SMES in the world to address the epidemic of coronavirus. While this aid has not yet been distributed in France, Facebook "hope to get to a point where over the course of the month of June," assured Laurent Solly.
