2. Worldwide Internet…with Drones
It may shock people living on this side of the planet to know that most of the world does not have Internet. Mark Zuckerberg set up an organization called Internet.org to help bring the Internet to the globe.
He wants to achieve universal access to Internet by creating a system of drones and satellites to broadcast Internet, rather than using the current infrastructure. Whether you are in Palo Alto or Pakistan, Internet.org would help you access the unlimited potential of the Internet. (Source: “Facebook – Mark Zuckerberg,” Facebook, Inc., March 27, 2014.)
“As part of our Internet.org efforts, we’re working on ways to use drones and satellites to connect the billion people who don’t live in range of existing wireless networks,” Zuckerberg noted. (Source: “Mark Zuckerberg’s 4 mind-bending predictions for the future,” TechJuice, July 7, 2015.)
3. 3D News
Facebook is already winning the Internet publishing wars. Rather than trying to become a competing news source or investing in different news outlets, Facebook became the gatekeeper to 1.55 billion people.
Zuckerberg started charging organizations for access to Facebook’s full spectrum of people. But in the future, those revenues could rise even further once Facebook offers news clips that are fully immersive. This would tie in with the company’s “Oculus Rift” headware.

4. Superhuman Abilities
Mark Zuckerberg also thinks that human potential shouldn’t be limited by the constraints of our nature. He thinks there are ways to expand human intelligence, extend human lives, and eradicate all diseases.
If you’re thinking “yeah, right…” then I should add that Zuckerberg isn’t alone in his thinking. A lot of scientists believe that advances in artificial intelligence could help increase longevity and develop cures for all sicknesses.
