One of the largest social networking sites, and we are talking about Facebook, will soon have its own metaverse. The giant intends to hire up to 10 new employees over the next few years.
Own metaverse and new name
The fact that Facebook is planning to create its own metaverse is not too surprising. The platform has been present in virtual space for a long time. More intriguing is the fact that Mark Zuckerberg's name change is being considered, which is expected to take place in the near future. The social network itself will continue to be available as Facebook, but the brand itself will be rebranded.
A new dimension of online business
It cannot be ruled out that metaverse will become a standard in business. Technology companies such as Tencent and Alibaba are currently working on the implementation of this solution. Online business may soon take on a completely new meaning.
So what does the still somewhat mysterious word metaverse mean? Well, these are shared virtual spaces that can be accessed by every user via the network, and also thanks to virtual or augmented reality devices. Virtual worlds form an entire ecosystem in which a parallel, virtual life takes place.
The turn of giants such as Facebook and Tencent towards this innovative technology proves its enormous economic potential, as well as the beginning of a new stage in the development of the Internet.
Mark Zuckerberg sees the potential of the metaverse
So far, Facebook has not released any details about its metavers. However, it is suspected that the work on it has already reached an advanced level, the more so that Zuckerberg's company has already turned to the VR sector some time ago.
In addition, Novi's new digital asset portfolio is being tested and the company intends to hire 10 new employees across Europe over the next five years. Mark Zuckerberg himself admitted some time ago that Facebook aims to become a "metaverse company". It is, in his opinion, a way for the recipients not only to receive content on the Internet, but also to enter the virtual space.
