At the forum, he talked about the Internet. He said that Facebook and other companies are working to bring the Internet to refugees. Refugees can use the Internet to communicate with their families. Mark Zuckerberg also said that the Internet is a human right.
Facebook is so popular that almost 1 billion people visit it in one day. Mark Zuckerberg said that the website will continue to grow.
Difficult words: co-founder (a person who founds – who starts a company – with somebody), forum (a meeting), refugee (a person who must leave his or her country because of something bad like war).
