Facebook opens up Internet.org for developers

Mon, May 04, 2015, 03:36 PM
New Delhi, May 4, 2015: Social networking site Facebook on Monday opened up its Internet.org for developers to easily create services that integrate with its site.

"Our goal with Internet.org is to work with as many developers and entrepreneurs as possible to extend the benefits of connectivity to diverse, local communities. To do this, we're going to offer services through Internet.org in a way that's more transparent and inclusive," Facebook said in a post.

This decision by the international giant comes at a time when the entire nation is debating on net neutrality.

The company said: "We're building an open platform and anyone who meets these guidelines will be able to participate."

The platform that was launched on Monday will be open to all developers who will build web sites that must be optimized for browsing on both feature and smartphones and in limited bandwidth scenarios.

"In addition, web sites must be properly integrated with Internet.org to allow zero rating," the post said.

Reliance Communications, a part of the Anil Ambani-led group, on February 10 said it has been roped in by Facebook to offer free access to data and web sites to customers through the social networking site's global digital inclusion initiative, Internet.org.
