Facebook Launches “2G Tuesdays”

Facebook has started a 2G Tuesdays program to give its developers a taste of slow Internet. This is a great idea. “…the program allows Facebook staff to slow their mobile internet speed down to 2G for an hour, as Business Insider first reported. It is entirely optional and doesn’t last the full day, but it will let staff who don’t get to travel much to gain a better understanding of the issues that users in far-flung countries face.”
