Social media platform giant Facebook has informed a new feature of Metaverse that will focus on building and improving the evolving spaces in a broader sense
As Per Facebook:
“FRL has been focused on building products that deliver presence across digital spaces for years. Today Portal and Oculus can teleport you into a room with another person, regardless of physical distance, or to new virtual worlds and experiences.
But to achieve our full vision of the Metaverse, we also need to build the connective tissue between these spaces – so you can remove the limitations of physics and move between them with the same ease as moving from one room in your home to the next.”
What Will Happen in the Next Phase?
According to Facebook, the Metaverse concept will play a key role in the next phase of digital connection, as the Facebook platform aims to facilitate whole new forms of online interaction based on your digital self.
Your digital persona exists and can interact, within the Metaverse, in a whole new sphere in a variety of ways.
This is in essence what is known as the Metaverse. It is a type of platform designed to allow for a more immersive virtual reality experience so that you can immerse yourself in a digital environment in which others can also be present.
As Per the CEO of Facebook
“The metaverse is a vision that spans many companies – the whole industry. You can think about it as the successor to the mobile internet.
And it’s certainly not something that anyone company is going to build, but I think a big part of our next chapter is going to hopefully be contributing to building that, in partnership with a lot of other companies and creators and developers.”
Indeed, Zuckerberg even noted that Facebook will turn into a ‘Metaverse company’ over the next five years, which aims to integrate all the company’s various Social platforms and tools into one, cohesive experience.
Considering how much power Facebook has informed already over our daily lives and inputs, it may also be cause for concern.
The new project group will be tasked with developing and advancing toward Zuckerberg’s grand vision.
Facebook has also allocated some senior company leaders to the new group, emphasizing this emphasis and the importance of the project.
Although it is changing dramatically – from eCommerce development of AR to virtual clothes and virtual ensembles, to VR – it is in many ways evolving.
It is important to understand that each of these elements, on its own, has great potential, but that they can be blended into one singularity to provide even more opportunities for expression, creativity, connection, etc.
