    India is an amazing country with unlimited potential: Mark Zuckerberg




    Zee Media Bureau/Reema Sharma

    New Delhi: Social networking site Facebook's CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg on Thursday said that he is very excited to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi tomorrow because the latter is socially very well connected.

    Zuckerberg said that he is also looking forward to discuss how Facebook can connect villages and help the government in its digitisation scheme.

    The billionaire CEO, addressing the first Internet.org summit, congratulated India for its successful Mars mission. He said that India has shown its technical skill through Mangalyaan.

    He said, “India has always made leaps in revolutions that changed the world. Mangalyaan was a huge achievement for India.”

    Zuckerberg reiterated that India's next generation has the ability to define the future. The new generation has the potential to “bring India to world and bring world to India” he said.

    “India is an amazing country with unlimited potential,” he added.

    “Two-third of world population does not have access to internet. We need to change this to make internet more affordable so that everyone can have an access to it,” Zuckerberg said.

    He further said that connectivity is a human right. He said that he wants to help build an internet which is affordable for everyone.

    A praise of India coming from a white guy is bound to make Indian jumping with joy.

    So many years and generation will get spent only to get back our own self respect and self identity.
    :sad:

    One positive change I sense is this jubilation on western approval seems a bit less as compared to what used to be in the past.[HR][/HR]

    Good to see your new profile picture, dear. Personally speaking, I don't want more violence and bloodshed. Those are the future time events predicted by last messenger of our religion. And they are many not just one. Anyways, I have made a promise to not open my religious views on this forum. I think you guys are capable enough to watch your national interest carefully.

    India is Facebook's 2nd largest market. Zuckerberg's praises for India are not purely because of appreciation but because of commercial interests.

    Secondly, as useful as connecting villages is, make no mistake that Facebook or any other corporation will definitely commercialize it even under the garb of "connectivity as human right".

    Nothing comes free especially when dealing with US corporations.

    Why? It would most likely not be as good as the original and would take decades to build up to the level of FB and Twitter. It would provide little extra benefits to India and enter competing in a very competitive market. It would cause competition with powerful American companies where none is needed, and cost India the benefits from those companies like Facebook's project to try and get the vast majority of Indians on the internet. Keep in mind also that Indians are the largest English speaking population in the world and FB and Twitter are very popular and powerful tools of social media. This gives Indians massive soft power and political influence on America and the western world.

    By creating our own version, we would lose all of these benefits, gain few jobs, and likely produce an inferior and far less popular product that would take decades to catch up.
