When you visit Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook account his last post on MWC 2015 is winning the hearts of the public, but the founder even though on hostile grounds did his best at easing spiteful debates. He spoke to executives at the Barcelona event to try and win the hearts and help of those there to help him provide people without Internet access.
At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona it was Zuckerberg’s goal or should we say mission to make peace with the telecoms industry, which have been his / Facebook’s principal critics yet.
Last year in 2014 Mark Zuckerberg made waves at MWC 2014 after purchasing WhatsApp for $19.2 billion, because this is an app that pulls people from texts and phone calls where traditional telco companies would lose profits.
In any case, the telecom organizations that construct the framework for the Internet are still incredulous. Some telecom administrators contend that while organizations like Facebook and Google profit from mass network, the administrators that put resources into building the network get left behind on the grounds that tech organizations construct applications like WhatsApp that help individuals impart for nothing.
Mark Zuckerberg took to his Facebook to share his vision of free basic access to the Internet; his new service is now available to over 500 million people worldwide, 7 million being connected through Internet.org. He also added a photo of himself at the MWC 2015 with Christian De Faria of Airtel Africa, Mario Zanotti of Tigo and Jon Frederik Baksaas of Telenor.
Jon Fredrik Baksaas, chief executive officer of Norway’s Telenor and head of the global trade association of operators, said he was open to working with Internet.org while remaining critical of Facebook’s impact on his industry, Reuters reports.
