Facebook's 10 year plan to take over the world

One billion people will visit Facebook today. 

They'll post images, chat about stuff, "Like" hilarious cat videos and generally faff about on the most populous social media site in the world - but that's not enough.

"We're trying to connect everyone on the planet," Facebook's vice president of engineering Jay Parikh tells ShortList.com.

He's on a mission, to explain how and why an internet service Mark Zuckerberg conceived in his university dorm is now trying to connect some four million people currently unable to gain access to the internet.

This is Facebook's 10 year plan for total internet connectivity - and world domination. Of sorts.
