Plenty of folks have criticized and its "internet app" ---"...a commercial venture parading as a humanitarian effort." Recently, the "venture" expanded to Ghana.

My question is : What if is "parading as a humanitarian effort?" Facebook already has 10's of millions of users on the continent. What other entity would be incentivized to provide folks access to technology at such a cost--- free?

It has been referred to as Facebook's "Gateway Drug", but I personally am an advocate for easy access to information. Conversely, whether one should assume that this access results in social impact is another issue.
