EXPLAINED: All You Need To Know About Facebook’s Meta-‘Verse’ Concept
Few days ago, Mark Zuckerberg had announced a dynamic revolution into the metaverse, as the CEO stated that Facebook has a new name, Meta.
There will still be a Facebook, and an Instagram and all the familiar platforms, as this is simply a renaming of the parent company alone.
The new name would unveil the platform’s “next chapter” – a 3D journey into the metaverse, which it sees as the future of the internet.
However due to series of ongoing controversies of privacy currently embattling Facebook (META), analysts all over the world have wondered if the public will trust the firm enough to take part in Mark Zuckerberg’s new vision.
Facebook on the other hand had insisted that the metaverse will be the next evolution in the way we use the internet.
“In this future, you will be able to teleport instantly as a hologram to be at the office without a commute, at a concert with friends, or in your parents’ living room to catch up.” chief executive Mr Zuckerberg wrote.
Although, Meta stresses this is not a virtual world, but a new three-dimensional space to be used and accessed in various ways, saying: “Augmented reality glasses to stay present in the physical world, virtual reality to be fully immersed, and phones and computers to jump in from existing platforms.
The company says it is: “A social, 3D virtual space where you can share immersive experiences with other people, even when you can’t be together in person – and do things together you couldn’t do in the physical world.”
