🌌 It’s because Mark Zuckerberg wants Facebook to be seen as a _“metaverse company”_ instead of a social media company.
📌 So far, the company has been known by only the name of one of its products - Facebook.
What is Metaverse?
🌐 Zuckerberg says it’s an _embodied internet._ This means it blends real and virtual worlds more than ever before.
💡 _It’s more like you are living in the internet, rather than just looking at it. Here, you can feel present with other people as if you were in other places._
✅ For example, you and your friend who stays in another country can meet up in an amusement park in a virtual world, but with digital avatars.
🤝 You can talk, chat and interact with the virtual world you’re in.
Metaverse is a universe with all such virtual worlds.
👉 At the same time, the metaverse is not limited to Virtual Reality alone.
💻 Currently, you can only experience the internet when you go to it.
👁️ With everything connected to the internet and using augmented reality, you’ll be able to experience it all around you all the time.
👓 For example, you wear AR glasses with a brain-computer interface,
🚗 When you think about a car, the brain-computer interface understands your thoughts and displays a 3D model of the car before you.
🌐 Some see Metaverse as the next version of the internet.
