Facebook Aims to Eventually Get the Entire World Online with Internet.org

About 2.7 billion people around the world have access to the Internet, but Mark Zuckerberg and the Facebook team have been quietly working away on a new plan that will aim to get at least another 5 billion people online.

Facebook has teamed up with six other tech giants including Ericsson, MediaTek, Nokia, Opera, Qualcomm and Samsung to launch Internet.org, a new initiative promoting the development of more affordable Internet connectivity, data delivery and smartphone access in developing countries.

“The goal of Internet.org is to make Internet access available to the two-thirds of the world who are not yet connected and to bring the same opportunities to everyone that the connected third of the world has today,” said Zuckerberg.

You can go ahead and check out Internet.org right now to watch the launch video.
