WEB DESK: The question that everyone has been asking after the Townhall session that ‘why India’ has been answered by Mark Zuckerberg.
He said in his post after the session that ‘the top question was why I care so much about India’
He shared that he has a responsibility to the big chunk of Indian internet users and Indian internet non users.
“We feel a deep responsibility to serve the 130 million Indians who use Facebook, and we care deeply about connecting the 1 billion Indians who do not yet have access to the internet.
Research shows that for every 10 people who gain access to the internet, about one person gets lifted out of poverty and one new job gets created.
Connecting the 1 billion unconnected in India is not only an important thing for India, it’s one of the best things we can do to improve the world overall.”
