Soon, Mark Zuckerberg will rule the world! I've jokingly referred to Facebook as an intelligence gatherer for extra terrestrials preparing to invade Earth. Zuckerberg's creation already has more than a billion members. Plans are now underway to reach huge sections of Africa. The Business Insider reports, Facebook has partnered with a French satellite company that will connect huge areas of sub Saharan Africa.

Chris Daniels, VP of Facebook’s program said, “Facebook’s mission is to connect the world and we believe that satellites will play an important role in addressing the significant barriers that exist in connecting the people of Africa,”

This could be a great thing. A lot of folks from Louisiana are working in African oilfields.
