Facebook Has Drones Successfully Deliver A Vision of Worldwide Internet Access
Just last week, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced to the world that the social media networking site has 2 billion users. In addition to the 2 billion Facebook users, Zuckerberg also revealed aspirations to give 4 billion people— more than half the world’s population— something we all take granted for on a daily basis— internet access.
The internet access will be provided via drones. Sources from The Yuma Sun reveal that Facebook successfully completed a drone flight in Arizona. The first test run ended in a crash a year ago.
In a Facebook post Zuckerberg wrote, “No one has ever built an unmanned airplane that will fly for months at a time, so we need to tune every detail to get this right.” According to Complex , Aquila roughly weighs 1,000 pounds with a wingspan wider than a Boeing 747.
No word yet as to when Zuckerberg and Facebook plan on actually accomplishing their goal of worldwide internet access.

On an unrelated note, 2 new posts go live @ 5 and 5:15!
In the social media age, the success of every social network you currently use is measured by one thing–its users.
On Tuesday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote a short letter on his public page revealing that his company now has 2 BILLION users. Although a huge accomplishment for Zuckerberg, he isn’t quite satisfied with the massive amount of users. He continued saying he wants to “bring the world closer together.” Read the full statement below:
Zuckerberg’s aspirations for Facebook are a breath of fresh of air bringing attention to communities that need it the most. In a speech made in Chicago last week, he compared churches and Little Leagues to what he hopes Facebook will do in the future— help its users find a “sense of purpose and support.”
“A church doesn’t just come together. It has a pastor who cares for the well-being of their congregation, makes sure they have food and shelter. A little league team has a coach who motivates the kids and helps them hit better. Leaders set the culture, inspire us, give us a safety net, and look out for us.”
Kudos to Zuckerberg on making a splash in the world with Facebook!
