Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – The founder of social media giant Facebook is launching an effort to expand internet accessibility for people in previously untapped corners of the world.
Despite its nearly global reach, roughly 5 billion people are still without access to the internet, including 19 percent of the US.
Mark Zuckerberg is leading an internet campaign that he hopes will change that, internet.org
"We want to make it so that anyone, anywhere – a child growing up in rural India who never had a computer – can go to a store, get a phone, get online, and get access to all of the same things that you and I appreciate about the Internet," Zuckerberg said in an interview with CNN's "New Day" anchor Chris Cuomo
According to the World Bank, more than 4.5 billion of the world’s 7 billion people are without access.
