Sheryl Sandberg On Facebook's Latest Effort To Get 4 Billion People Online

Think there are already a ton of people on Facebook? Think again.

Facebook's Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg sat down with Arianna on HuffPost Live at Davos Friday to discuss the social network's initiative, internet.org, which seeks to bring online resources, like Facebook and Wikipedia, to areas of the world that aren't connected to the Internet yet.

According to recent research by McKinsey & Co., 4.4 billion people don't have Internet access.

"It's really exciting because we believe that when people see the power of data, they will improve their lives," Sandberg said. "And we see that all over the world."

Sandberg stressed the importance of bringing these resources to women, who are well poised to pass technology on to the next generation.

"We know the benefits of getting women connected are at least as good as the benefits of getting men connected, and possibly, and probably, more," she said.
