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.
Mark Zuckerberg said in a statement, ”Internet.org brings together a global partnership that will work to overcome these challenges, including making internet access available to those who cannot currently afford it.”
The questions on critics' lips is whether the rest of the world want to be online and whether they will really benefit? But this is our world moving forward into the future, being connected as one and opening up global discussion where everybody has a voice.
This is a potentially world changing idea. But it will take a lot of work from Mark Zuckerberg and his team, and a lot of support from the rest of the world.
