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.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
