Previously, Facebook shared a documentary on the Bangladesh based English learning group in Facebook ‘Search English’. This is the first time that Facebook created a documentary on any Bangladeshi group. The documentary created on Search English was published in Facebook Business Page on last October 25, 2017. In the documentary, different members of Search English group focused on learning English language. The subject matter of learning English language drew Facebook's attention through Search English.
A correspondent team of four members from Facebook Singapore Office came to Bangladesh on last August to meet the founder of Search English Mr. Rajib Ahmed and other members. ‘Search English’ Facebook Group was founded in June of 2016. Currently, the group contains above 10 lakh members. The group is open for all and anyone can join it.
