Facebook CEO Zuckerberg in Indonesia for Internet-access push
JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Mark Zuckerberg has traveled to Facebook-crazy Indonesia for the first time to spread the word about the company’s mission to connect more of the world’s poor to the Internet.
The Facebook CEO also met Indonesian President-elect Joko Widodo, who used social media extensively in his campaign. Zuckerberg said Monday they talked about creating more jobs and improving the economy, and he added that improving Internet connectivity can help.
The 30-year-old billionaire is traveling to help advance the Facebook-led project Internet.org, which aims to get free basic Internet services and affordable access to the large portion of the world that lacks them.
Zuckerberg also climbed the ancient Borobudur Buddhist temple in Central Java and posted a widely shared photo of himself atop its stupas on his Facebook page.
