Facebook has just revealed its first mobile app that will help Africans
get online free via its initiative internet.org which was launched last
year to help developing countries have access to cheap internet.
The initiative is first releasing its first app in Zambia, the app is
currently android base, it gives free access to cool internet base web
services totally free.
The app will allow users have access to online web services like:
• Google search
• Go Zambia Jobs
• MAMA (Mobile Alliance for Maternal Action)
• WRAPP (Women’s Rights App) and
• Zambia uReport
Facebook’s boss said in his post that “Right now, only 15% of people
in Zambia have access to the internet. Soon, everyone will be able to
use the internet for free to find jobs, get help with reproductive
health and other aspects of health, and use tools like Facebook to
stay connected with the people they love.”
But currently the free internet access will be for only Airtel Africa
customers in Zambia.
Nigerians will be waiting patiently for this awesome service.
