Mark Zukerberg


ConsulTree recognizes the future and actual leaders of the world. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s founder and CEO just released a paper exposing the need to include 2/3rds of the world, 5 billion people, that still do not have access to  the internet. As a leader going that extra mile to help and incorporate all humanity in the advancement and development of the world giving the same opportunities to all. His paper, Why Internet Connectivity is a Human Right, highlights the following topics yet to be resolved so every human has access to the internet:

   In his proposal Mark Zuckerberg points out that Facebook will not necessarily profit from this initiative but his purpose is just the inclusion of people.
   5 billion people without internet access. Of  these,  4 billion own  feature phones and 1 billion have smart phones.
   People should get at least a service like Facebook and then grow from there.
Why internet is so important
To spread knowledge, the more things we all know, the better ideas, products and services we can all offer and the better all of our lives will be. He says “The knowledge economy is the future”.
4 Obstacles on the path to connecting everyone
1.       Most people in the world don’t have much disposable income to spend on data access.
2.       The global infrastructure required to deliver the internet is extremely expensive.
3.       Lack of understanding of what a data plan is.
4.       A lot of people do not have cell phones yet, but they are not covered in this presentation.
The Vision
Increase data delivery by 100x in the next 5-10 years by bringing down the underlying costs of delivering data, and using less data by building more efficient apps.
The Rough Plan
   Making internet access affordable by making it more efficient to deliver data.
   Using less data by improving the efficiency of the apps and experiences we use.
   Helping businesses drive internet access by developing a new model to get people online.
Win-Win Situation
   This is good for people because they’ll have an affordable way and a reason to connect to the internet and join the global knowledge economy.
   This is good for mobile operators because they’ll have more customers who want to buy more data, which will increase their profits and help them invest in building out the networks
   This is good for phone manufacturers and technology providers because more people will want better devices, which will push the industry forward.
   This is good for internet services because the efficiencies we’ll all drive will make it easier and cheaper for the next 5 billion people to access their services.
   This is good for the world because everyone will benefit from the increased knowledge, experience and progress we make from having everyone connected to the internet.
If it all works according to plan 5 billion people will  have at least a data service called Facebook.
