Facebook today introduced Internet.org, its open platform to serve people with free internet for developers. In a blog post, the company said developers and entrepreneurs could create services and integrate with Internet.org to serve people around the world with the best possible benefits.

Launched in August 2013, aiming to provide internet access to 5 billion people in the world, Internet.org partnered with mobile operators to offer free basic internet services to people who are yet not connected.

As Facebook approaches worldwide, developers need to pay for participation, and operators also won’t charge developers for the data people use for their services.

At the core of our efforts with Internet.org are non-exclusive partnerships with mobile operators to offer free basic internet services to people through Internet.org. This is a set of basic websites and services to introduce people to the value of the internet and that we hope to add value to their lives. – Facebook.

People can access a set of websites collaborated with Internet.org without paying anything to the operators in an economically sustainable way.

Developers who will join Facebook’s mission to bring two-thirds of the world’s population under internet coverage need to follow some guidelines briefed by the company. Users will also have better control over their services and can browse their preferred services that meet Facebook guidelines.

80% of the world population lives within the perimeter of the internet- but most of them are not online because they are not the well aware value of the internet and what it could bring to them.

Developers who aim to join the mission should have a broader view of how the internet can bring change into society in an affordable way.
