Facebook’s stock was up on good earnings news yesterday, but another Facebook story from this week caught our eye. It’s about the developing world, where Facebook wants to be the Internet portal for mobile users. Those users won’t likely have smartphones — instead flip phones and text messages will connect them to the web.
Jonathan Zittrain, co-founder of Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society, joins Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson to discuss.
If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air. But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.
Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.
When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
