The Facebook metaworld: a first look at Mark Zuckerberg’s virtual reality

The company has announced plans to hire 10,000 employees in Europe to work on the metaverse, and plans to launch a new futuristic computing platform.

Metaverse is essentially 3-D Internet, an online world in which people can meet, play and work virtually, often getting into this world with virtual reality headsets.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg described this place where instead of just watching “you’re in it” content, and as an early example he used the idea that people watch a video of a concert on their smartphone and then jump into it using the meta universe to create the feeling that they actually there.

Anyone who has seen movies like Ready Player One will have an idea of ​​what it might look like.

A first look at the metaworld of Facebook

The social networking platform, which also owns Instagram and WhatsApp, announced the new plans live from Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook account.

The video gave the first idea of ​​what Zuckerberg’s vision looks like.

It shows how a Facebook owner communicates with virtual versions of their friends in space, and can also call friends through the program’s messenger service.

Virtual street art can be viewed in a new virtual reality with real live videos that are combined with virtual experiences, such as underwater surrounded by fish.

But this seems to be just the beginning, when Zuckerberg teased even more, saying, “Okay, so this is just a glimpse of a few ways we can get together and communicate in the metaverse.”

How soon will I be able to use the Facebook meta universe?

There is still time to wait.

Facebook insisted that the creation of the metaverse was only at the “beginning of the road”, and Mr. Zuckerberg talked about transforming the company into the base of the metaverse in five years.

Plans to hire thousands of new engineers and other employees in Europe to help create the platform show that Facebook is serious about the idea, but so far it is still a few years away from reality.
