In an exclusive broadcast interview with CNN, "New Day" Co-Host Chris Cuomo sits down with Facebook Founder, Chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg to discuss the launch of his new, wide-reaching initiative, internet.org.
The tech genius says this platform will address "one of the biggest problems" of his generation by extending Internet access to five billion people in the next 10 years.
Zuckerberg tells Cuomo that while many Americans already use the Internet to connect, this new platform will empower people in developing parts of the world such as India and Africa to "decide what kind of government they want; get access to healthcare for the first time ever."
Facebook has already invested over one billion dollars towards this goal.
Despite the perception of competition, Facebook will team up with other founding members Ericsson, MediaTek, Nokia, Opera, Qualcomm and Samsung.
Zuckerberg says, "No one company or government can solve this problem by themselves" and that he's "grateful" the companies are working together.
