NEW YORK- Mark Zuckerberg spent a lot of time talking up Internet.org, the ambitious project by Facebook and partners to get everyone in the world online at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

Zuckerberg said Facebook's acquisition of the WhatsApp mobile messaging system will allow it to focus on growing its user base, and not making money, over the next five years.

It has 465 million monthly members and he says its on track to reach a billion users.

Zuckerberg is known for his vision for Facebook and for bringing the Internet to billions around the world who are not connected.
