Facebook wants to become a metaverse company
Earlier this month, Facebook announced its intentions to turn the social media platform into a metaverse company.
The term metaverse was originally coined in 1992 by writer Neal Stephenson in his novel “Snow Crash”. This book tells the story of people who wear virtual reality headsets to interact with a game-like digital world.
Now, Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has announced his intentions to bring this vision to life. It could potentially enable people to interact with each other, even if they are thousands of miles away.
This technology could also be great for the future of video games, allowing players to blur virtual entertainment with the real-world economy.
