Facebook has launched an app providing the citizens of Zambia with free Internet access. This move is the next step toward Facebooks goal of bringing wireless Internet access to everyone around the world. The Internet.org initiative, led by Facebook in partnership with several other technology companies, is aiming to bring Internet access to five billion more people. A commendable goal — and also a lot more new users for the company. Thus far, their efforts have given Internet access to three million people.  Zambia was targeted in part because only fifteen percent of citizens have Internet access. The app will allow mobile users to have free basic Internet services through their cellphones.
