Technology: Bringing the Internet to Zambia

Facebook recently launched an app for Internet.org, a partnership that attempts to offer wireless service in developing countries. This app will allow users to use Facebook, Messenger, Google, Wikipedia, a weather service, and an app promoting women’s rights without the conventional data charges. This free service is intended to bring more people online, and so far 3 million people have been affected. But why is Facebook suddenly interested in expanding outside the U.S.? Its growth rate is slowing in Western markets, so developing countries are the next biggest market.
