Facebook figures the more people who are online, the more people it might be able to draw to its site. So, the social networking site is teaming up with large mobile technology companies to get more of the world's population online.
It has gone into a partnership with companies like Samsung and Nokia to make Internet access available to others who aren't yet connected. Facebook says its Internet.org initiative is aimed at helping "the two-thirds of the world who are not yet connected" to get online. Those plans include developing cheaper smartphones and using mobile data more efficiently.
