The socialist states back in socialist era used to have 2-, 3-, and 5-years plans for their development. Mark Zuckerberg was speaking to a crowd of 2,600 developers from around the world
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg went farther: he has a 10-year plan of Facebook development. Main thesis is to connect the world and grab along the way potential billions in dollars.
Pretty much ambitious a political cause.
In a sweeping address that took on sharp political tones at times, Facebook’s 31-year-old Mark Zuckerberg detailed how Facebook aims to reach the planet’s 7 billion people — half of whom do not have Internet access now.

Zuckerberg laid out his vision in three main directions of future development:
