Being the master of Facebook isn't enough for Mark Zuckerberg, he wants to bring the internet to everyone in the world.

Being the master of Facebook isn't enough for Mark Zuckerberg, not when only a third of the planet can access the internet. So his new project is to bring the internet to everyone in the world by focusing on solutions in three major areas: affordability, efficiency and business models.

He can’t do this alone though. Ericsson, Nokia, Opera, Qualcomm, Samsung and MediaTek are onboard with Facebook and, through sharing tools, resources and best practices, hope to connect to the two-thirds of the world that don't yet have access to the internet. That's around five billion more people to turn into internet lovers like the rest of the 2.7 billion people in the world that are already connected.
