    FB plans

    Wonder what impact the FB group will have on Google's plans.

    Excerpt from article

    The group, called internet.org, will attempt to aid emerging economies by making Web access more affordable, use data more efficiently and help business drive access to more users.

    "There are huge barriers in developing countries to connecting and joining the knowledge economy," said Mr. Zuckerberg in prepared remarks. "Internet.org brings together a global partnership that will work to overcome these challenges, including making internet access available to those who cannot currently afford it."

    He said the company has already spent about $1 billion on infrastructure toward the goal of broader Internet access in the developing world, and plans to spend more.
