The Facebook Preferred Marketing Developer (PMD) program was created to help businesses scale their marketing efforts on Facebook. It is a community of hundreds of technology companies in more than 45 countries with expertise in helping marketers and advertisers establish and grow lasting connections with customers.

Today we’re announcing a series of changes that will make it easier for marketers to find the right partners through the program. Beginning in early 2015, the PMD program will be called Facebook Marketing Partners. In addition to the new name, we’re restructuring the program to make it easier for marketers to find qualified partners based on their specific needs.
