Facebook Launches Lab To Bring Internet Everywhere
Facebook recently hired key members to their team coming from Ascenta. Ascenta is a U.K. company that founded one of the first longest-flying solar powered drones. Facebook’s plan is to bring internet everywhere in the world. Out of 7 billion people in the world, only 30% are actively online. Facebook has recently been on a spending spree since purchasing $2 billion deal to buy virtual reality startup Oculus. They are preparing for the world of tomorrow. Mark Zuckerberg’s main goal is not to connect everyone on Facebook, but to get people to have access to things like basic financial services, and access to health care information, and be updated on education and safety services. This was very eye opening to me to think that only 30% of the world is downloading, purchasing, and streaming music. It will be very interesting to see how the offline world will adapt to the new recent innovations in music services online in the near future!
