Despite the failed attempts of the company led by Marc Zuckerberg to bring free Internet to India and Egypt, the plan still continues in the goals of the social network. During the second day of the conference of the F8, the company executives focused on explaining how they will achieve this goal.

The intention of the company's technology is to connect stable at various locations around the world where the Internet is carried out through the investment for the development of a system of drones and lampposts with free wi-fi which is first installed in Silicon Valley, home of these and other major technology companies.

Terragraph is the name that will be announced by the ambitious project of Facebook that will light this year. The system is using Facebook and allows the connection of up to 7 Megabits and was created in cooperation with the company WiGig.

However, one of the cons of this technology is that it can hardly penetrate the walls and loses the signal beyond 200 or 250 meters. This makes it a good choice for the streets, while for the rural 4G distributed as the wireless band used. 

While this method already existed, incorporating the Facebook novelty is the materialization of merging the power of 96 antennas and provides the connection to a limit of 24 devices simultaneously. According to the data from Facebook the spectrum is 10 times higher than what is currently offered in the rural areas.

This ambitious plan, would overcome one of the challenges of the digital divide. For Facebook Latin America it is one of its priorities, where the main objective is to make that the forests have wi-fi.

Among other announcements made ??by the company during the conference were those related to the technology this year: the virtual reality and the one addition of many more pictures of 360 degrees so that the user can explore using the virtual reality goggles, and have therefore announced a camera called "Surround360" to create 3D images for the social network.

Mark Zuckerberg said that his company is working on other forms of the social experiences, including the augmented reality. In fact, for Zuckerberg both augmented reality and virtual form part of the daily lives of people here in 10 years.

Facebook also advances the optimization of its capacity in terms of live video transmissions with Facebook Live, platform that will compete with Periscope and other similar platforms.
The idea of ??the creator of Facebook is that we can deliver live video from anywhere on any device, even from the drones, which showed live on stage. But for that he enlists the help of the developers, and to win it release FB API Live.

Zuckerberg wanted to boast the two numbers for the instant messaging platforms F8. And is that among the users of Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, two of the most used messaging services in the world, and more than 60.000 messages sent each day million.
