Facebook to Unleash an Army of Drones

Facebook is said to be in talks to work alongside drone manufacturer Titan Aerospace in a bid to connect the world.

Titan Aerospace creates unmanned solar-powered drones capable of flying at 65,000 feet for five years without needing to land - offering a cheaper alternative to orbital satellites.

Facebook is said to be in negotiations with Titan right now in the hope of using its drones to generate internet connectivity to areas of the world that currently lack access.

Rumours suggest Facebook's first step will be to have 11,000 drones built with Africa, the first country on their list.
