Facebook is launching a mobile application to give users in Zambia free access to a handful of online services on mobile phones, to broaden an effort of boosting Internet usage in underdeveloped countries.
 
In partnership with wireless operator Airtel, the Internet.org application will offer more than a dozen services including online encyclopaedia Wikipedia, websites devoted to weather, job listings and health information, as well as Facebook's own social network and messaging service.
 
Guy Rosen, product management director for Facebook's Internet.org effort states that the application will be available in additional countries over the coming months and years.
