Here is what Facebook’s Metaverse might look like

The route to the Metaverse

Let’s say you’re browsing through a shoe ad on Instagram. Even with today’s technology, you can view this shoe on your feet using your phone’s camera. Instagram and Snapchat can support this.

How about your own Avatar powered by Facebook?

Ready Player Me is a platform that lets you create an avatar. While there are a number of platforms that let you do that, what makes Ready Player Me stand out is that these avatars are ‘interoperable’, that is they have the ability to enter a bunch of different ‘worlds’.

Is Facebook making its own Metaverse?

Nope, that’s not what it is. Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook will become a Metaverse company in another five years. Here is what he said — “And my hope, if we do this well, I think over the next five years or so, in this next chapter of our company, I think we will effectively transition from people seeing us as primarily being a social media company to being a Metaverse company,”

What does this mean to VR?

This strategy does not ignore the work Oculus and Facebook is doing on AR glasses. AR glasses would rather be components of Facebook’s Metaverse Strategy.

The Internet’s Data

Facebook is not just a platform on its own. Facebook is everywhere on the internet. Are you able to recollect how many times you’ve signed up to a website/app using your Facebook account? And oh, did we tell you about how 17% of the websites have Facebook pixels? That’s 8.4 million websites! They send back your data to Facebook even if you’re not on Facebook!

How will this happen?

Well, we have made these deductions based on the assumption that there will be an open Metaverse concept.
