As Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is scheduled to have a townhall in New Delhi, Facebook is taking a step closer towards understanding how consumers in India experience the social network.In its quest to capture nearly every Internet-connected person on the planet, Facebook is rolling out a new internal program designed to help its staff better understand how users in regions with slowers connections access its site. “People are coming online at a staggering rate in emerging markets and, in most cases, are doing so on mobile via 2G connections,” a Facebook spokesperson told Mashable. “But on the lower end of 2G networks, it can take about two minutes to download a webpage.

We need to understand how people use Facebook in different Internet connections in all parts of the world so we can build the best experience for them.” Initial reports of the internal program showed up on Business Insider, where Facebook’s engineering director Tom Alison told the site that the program will be opt-in for employees. “Employees will have the option to have their mobile phones simulate a 2G connection,” the Facebook spokesperson confirmed to Mashable.
