Zuckerberg will be on India from Oct.9-10 to attend and address the summit Internet.org. Internet.org ‘s aim is to make Internet affordable to the 5 billion people across the globe.
Internet.org is a group that Zuckerberg founded along with mobile-device makers Samsung, Nokia, and Qualcomm to promote “Knowledge Economy”. Started in August, Internet.org is Zuckerberg’s second major effort to help advance technology, coming months after the launch of his political action committee, FWD.us. Facebook estimates that 5 billion people, or nearly two-thirds of the world, are without Internet access, and it wants to make sure that knowledge is better shared in this global community.
