FACEBOOK founder Mark Zuckerberg plans to visit Spain shortly for the Mobile World Congress at the end of February.

The California-based social network tycoon will head to Barcelona, where the congress is due to take place for another year, and plans to talk to journalist Jessi Hempel from the magazine Wired about his project Internet.org, and his ambitious aim of connecting up the planet using solar-powered satellites, aeroplanes and lasers.

After Barcelona, Zuckerberg will fly to Berlin for a question-and-answer session.

He calls the German capital 'one of his favourites in the world', and reveals that over 27 million German residents are on Facebook.

The 'father of Facebook' – who is now also a father in real life, to a baby daughter Max – attended the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last year, saying mobile phones were a major asset to Facebook.

In fact, it is now two years since Zuckerberg's empire bought the instant text-messaging service WhatsApp.
