Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder and chief executive of Facebook, recently announced he wants to triple the size of his already gigantic social network. In order to expand his 1.6 billion members, Zuckerberg plans to reach new audiences by changing telecommunications networks and making Internet more affordable.
This strategy will help potential Facebook users around the world, notably in countries with little or no Internet access. This seems like a big undertaking. Even for Facebook.
There's no doubt this vision could potentially take years to start, if it is even possible. However, if it does work it will prove just how big of an impact Facebook has on the way we connect with our friends and family though the Internet. Not to mention the impact on the traditional economics of the technology industry.
