Free Basics: Facebook’s failure at ‘digital equality’ (Al Jazeera)

Al Jazeera: Free Basics: Facebook’s failure at ‘digital equality’. “…while Free Basics may be ‘free’ in terms of money, it comes at another cost that Facebook is loathe to acknowledge, despite concerns raised by digital rights experts and activists. The app gives users access to only a tiny set of services, a clear violation of net neutrality. And it collects data about users and their activities on the app, without telling them how this data will be used.”
