Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founder of Facebook, was at a forum the United Nations organised. He met with people like Angela Merkel, and U2’s frontman Bono.

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.
