The Facebook Internet.org app newly launched, promising to bring free data and basic web services to parts of Southern Africa, without data charges. Amazingly, about 85% of people in the world live in regions with cellular coverage, but only about 30% of the world's population have access to the Internet. With Facebook backing Internet.org, the app is set to provide access to health and employment services, along with things that most Internet users take for granted like Facebook, Wikipedia, search engines, messengers, weather services as well as the WRAPP Women's Rights App and MAMA, the Mobile Alliance for Maternal Action.
Facebook announced that the Internet.org app will first be introduced to Airtel subscribers in Zambia before it is brought to other parts of the world.
