Facebook is harnessing satellite, drone and other technology to beam Internet connectivity to people in underdeveloped parts of the world. Facebook drones are just a plan, now, but it might come true. A fleet of drones might rival Google’s blimps and balloons.
I find this quite exciting. Any Internet ‘connectivity’ implies possible threats of spying and terrorism, as we know. But my first thought about the drones and blimps is that people who work the land and sea might find them very useful.
