Facebook has joined the GSM Association (GSMA), which is a group of mobile operators and technology partners that are standardizing and promoting the GSM cellular system. Facebook does not have any investment in cell networks, but they are interested in playing a role in the development of Internet.org. Internet.org is an organization that Facebook launched in August to help bring the whole world online.
“Joining GSMA reflects our focus on mobile and our continued desire to work closely and collaboratively with partners in the industry, and we look forward to playing an active role as a member,” said Facebook’s vice president of partnerships Dan Rose.
GSMA currently has over 1,000 members.
