    profile picture to a tricolor shade to show support to the Digital

    India campaign by the Modi government, we Indians have been following suit.

    Our timelines are flooded with tricolor profile pictures created from

    fb.com/supportdigitalindia (http://fb.com/supportdigitalindia). Now like

    everybody, you may think this is a gesture to support digital India. But it is not.

    Truth is that this is a subtle, albeit clever, tactic to promote Facebooks new

    initiative called internet.org. Facebook, in collaboration with 6 companies,

    namely, Samsung, Ericsson, Media Tek, Opera Software

    (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia) Nokia and Qualcomm, launched

    internet.org that plans to provide free internet services to developing

    countries.

    Now it may sound like a great philanthropic idea, one that would help digitalize

    even remote villages, it actually is a blow to internet freedom and net neutrality

    The free internet service will be available only to Reliance users, since the

    Some time back, when the country had risen in support of net neutrality

    signing petitions to save it, big players like The Times of India and NDTV had

    pulled out of internet.org (http://www.mensxp.com/technology/web-and-

    So, if you think that by changing your profile picture you are supporting the

    cause of a digitalized India, dont. You are unconsciously helping Facebook kill

    net neutrality.
