Facebook to Launch with Nokia, Samsung and 4 More

Facebook head, Mark Zuckerberg and 6 other tech giants have combined forces to begin The goal of this organization is placing the Internet within the reach of every individual on the planet! This is indeed a worthy goal, if ever there was one.

Facebook, under the tutelage of Mark Zuckerberg has teamed up with several other big firms to start  MediaTek, Nokia, Opera, Samsung, Ericsson and Qualcomm are the high tech companies that have collaborated with Facebook in order to provide Net facility to the rest of the 5 billion people of the world who lack the amenity. Till now, only 2.7 billion people have access to the internet facility. This is just one-third population of the whole world. Facebook CEO is on his mission to provide internet to the rest of the whole world from previous 9 years. The whole scheme is still in the pipeline though. Those living in poverty and destitution hardly have a connection and they form the majority of the people on planet earth. They deserve to be included in the game along with the elite that already use the provision of cyberspace. Zuckerberg wants to extend the Net Numbers to include the entire global population. Then it will truly be a global village. 

This is a philanthropic move of the best kind. The practical plan is to make the connections very low cost. Also there is sense in allowing smart phone technology to take over so that anyone may use the facility from the comfort of his or her handset. Ways of shedding the resultant load on the system are also being looked into. Even Google has jumped on the bandwagon by releasing many balloons into the southern half of the world so as to lend the facilities to people living in the far-off regions of the world. Zuckerberg’s plan is realistic, even if it is a little ambitious. In fact, it might be the best solution to worldwide conflict. Once all the people of the globe are connected with each other some tempers may cool down and the impending disaster of terrorism may be averted.  

Mark Zuckerberg said during the announcement, "Everything Facebook has done has been about giving all people around the world the power to connect. There are huge barriers in developing countries to connecting and joining the knowledge economy. brings together a global partnership that will work to overcome these challenges, including making internet access available to those who cannot currently afford it."
