The Facebook drones are coming. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote Thursday about using “drones, satellites and lasers to deliver internet to everyone.”
He blogged about the next steps “to connect the whole world with Internet.org,” a cornerstone of the social network’s effort to expand globally and make a broader societal impact.
Zuckerberg has been pushing a broader mission to connect the world as Facebook works to expand its user base globally. He focused on Internet.org during his keynote speech at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last month and cited the effort as one of the main reasons for purchasing WhatsApp, a mobile messaging service, for $19 billion in February.
