When it comes to Facebook, we keep reading about the so-called metaverse. Mark Zuckerberg wants to create a future with his company in which we don’t just log on to a platform, but dive into it and work there.
The Facebook CEO introduced the concept of the so-called Metaverse, which he described as the next generation of the Internet. The Metaverse, he said, is the next level of social media, a virtual environment where you can be present with other people in a digital space.
Simply put, the Metaverse that Facebook envisions can be described as a virtual world, similar to the VR worlds we already know today. But the difference is that the immersion behind Facebook’s plans is supposed to be a lot more powerful. You should, Zuckerberg said, really feel like you’re in a different place with another person. There, he said, you can work, play or simply spend time together – all with your own avatar customized to your individual appearance.
Since Facebook doesn’t just want to design the Metaverse for themselves, but sees it as an opportunity for many companies, products, and people, they want to bring it to all known virtual reality devices to push the spread as much as possible. Other companies are also working on their own Metaverse and it remains exciting to see which company will launch the first working version.
