An interesting departure, and one which will bring the Internet to distant parts of the globe, assuming they have electricity, of course.

Facebook is reportedly in discussions to acquire Titan Aerospace, a manufacturer of drones, for around $60m.

Titan Aerospace specialises in solar-powered, very high flying drones capable of staying airborne for five years at a time, positioned as a more cost-effective alternative to orbital satellites dubbed as “atmospheric satellites”.Report: Facebook In Discussions Over Drone Satellite Maker [theguardian.com]

Facebook are there to connect people. They need to actively seek or create new markets and getting net access to parts of the world where it simply doesn't exist is one way of doing that.
