Facebook Meta – Facebook recently rebranded its name to be called Metaverse. The term “meta” is the latest buzzword capturing tech imagination.

The Metaverse will feel like a hybrid of today’s online experience; it will let you share the immersive experience with other people even when you can’t be together and do things together physically. Metaverse is the next evolution in a long line of social technology.
Mark Zuckerberg and his team are not only the tech industry with the Metaverse idea should form shape, other companies have tried creating the Metaverse in the form of the mobile games, but Facebook is the first to go all out with the VR glasses and Headphones.
What is Metaverse?
The Metaverse is a virtual environment where you can go inside instead of just looking at the screen. Think of it as an internet brought to life or rendered in 3D; the Metaverse is a world of endless, interconnected virtual communities where people can work, hang out, play using their smartphones, VR glasses, and headsets.
It also incorporated other aspects of social media and online shopping.
What will I be able to do in the Facebook Metaverse?
The Facebook Metaverse will allow you to go to a virtual concert, take a trip online, shop digital clothing material, create artwork, and many more.
The Metaverse could be what people working from need amid the coronavirus pandemic; instead of having to be on video calls with co-workers, employees could easily join in the virtual office. Facebook has also launched a meeting software for companies called Horizon workrooms to use a VR headset; however, the early review has not been great.
The headset is worth $300 or more, making it difficult for many people to access the Metaverse.
And people who can afford the Metaverse will be eligible to discover the virtual world with their avatars. Several metaverse experiences will allow people to teleport from one experience to another, Facebook CEO stated.
Mark Zuckerberg goes to what he feels will be the next generation internet; he thinks it will be part of the next big digital economy. However, critics are not too pleased with Facebook metaverse; critics wonder if this could be an effort to distract company crises, testimony by former employees, and concerns about how Facebook is handling misinformation.
