1/3 of the World Online – Mark Zuckerberg aiming to Connect the other 2/3rds

Currently a staggering one in every seven people in the worlds uses Facebook. This is despite the fact that currently only 1/3 of the worlds population is online.

Now Facebook Founder and Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg is leading a push to get the remaining 4 billion people connected to the web and ultimately Facebook as well.

Heading up a new partnership called Internet.org Facebook is aiming to drastically cutting the cost of delivering basic Internet services on mobile phones, particularly in developing countries.

Samsung, Nokia, Qualcomm, Ericsson and others have agreed to work with Facebook as partners on the initiative.
Transmitting data such as a text message or a web page requires bandwidth that is scarce in many parts of the world. The partners will invest in tools and software to improve data compression capabilities and make data networks and services run more efficiently.
