Facebook will not participate in this year's Mobile World Congress either. Mark Zuckerberg's company has confirmed that it will not attend the Barcelona congress, scheduled from June 28 to July 1, because its risk prevention and health protection policy advises against attending face-to-face fairs until after June due to the pandemic. Even so, Facebook plans to explore the option of participating virtually in the fair, ACN has reported. The confirmation that Facebook will not be in Barcelona physically comes after Ericsson, Sony and Nokia also confirmed they would not.
