Washington : Facebook has announced the launch of Internet.org in a bid to connect underserved countries around the globe.
According to the TechCrunch, Facebook said in a blog-post that their goal with Internet.org is to work with as many developers and entrepreneurs as possible to extend the benefits of connectivity to diverse and local communities. So, they are going to offer services through Internet.org that are more transparent and inclusive.
Facebook also said that Internet.org is an open platform and anyone who meets these guidelines will be able to participate. The project comes under criticism for alleged violating net neutrality rules by favoring certain carriers, sites and services after which many Indian companies pulled out of internet.org.
