​Facebook, the world's largest social media network, joined CyberPatriot as a Cyber Gold sponsor in November 2014. From a social media standpoint, Facebook's mission is to give people the power to stay connected with friends and family, to discover what’s going on in the world, and to share and express what matters to them.  As an organization, Facebook "strongly supports CyberPatriot in its efforts to expand the pipeline of infosec students needed to make the internet a safer place for everyone, and [is] very excited to assist in these efforts."
