Facebook today launched the Public Content Solutions (PCS) program to provide dedicated technical and business resources to media partners building on top of Facebook and Instagram. The company is starting off with supporting its Keyword Insights API and Public Feed API, both of which help companies leverage the massive amounts of data and content associated with public events.

Facebook promises it will grow the program over time to include more APIs, tools, and support resources for the media industry. For now though, partners will receive a badge for display on their sites, as well as marketing materials, dedicated technical support from the PCS team, and access to Facebook’s Media Partnerships team.

Initial partners in the PCS program include Arktan, telescope, never.no, Timeline Labs, Tagboard, Vizrt, Reality Check, and SnappyTV. More partners will be added in due time. Meanwhile, Facebook is asking for interested developers “building compelling, high impact solutions for media companies” to shoot the company an email.
