Facebook rebautiza la aplicación de Internet.org

Luego de meses signados por controversias, Facebook ha decidido rebautizar a Internet.org, la plataforma que diseñó para proveer acceso gratuito a un conjunto limitado de aplicaciones y que ya utilizan más de 1.000 millones de personas, por el más sincero Free Basics.

Justamente la nomenclatura del servicio era uno de los aspectos más criticados por sus detractores, que juzgaban que la experiencia creada por la red social se parecía más a un “jardín cerrado” de contenidos que al Internet propiamente dicho.

La troupe de Zuckerberg sostuvo que se inclinó por el nuevo nombre con el objetivo de “distinguir a la iniciativa Internet.org de los programas y servicios” que presta. La versión actualizada del aplicativo ya se encuentra disponible en Google Play.

Lanzada en Bolivia, Colombia, Guatemala, Panamá y Paraguay, entre otros países, Free Basics también fue denostado por violaciones a la neutralidad, la práctica de zero rating y su política poco clara en materia de privacidad y seguridad.

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A couple of my blog readers have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?

    Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Hi there this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    There are actually loads of particulars like that to take into consideration. That is a nice level to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you deliver up where an important factor might be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around issues like that, however I’m positive that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Both boys and girls really feel the impression of only a second’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

    Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Many thanks
