Facebook is making a major shift! After controversy hit the company hard.
In the metaverse, instead of seeing events, social life and experiences on a screen, people are able to be in the experience in every way. Avatar is going to be the way people represent themselves.
These representations will be as common as profile pictures today but instead of a static image, they are going to be living 3D representations of people by merging their facial expressions, gestures and reactions. which results in a richer way of communicating online far better than today. People are able to have different avatars for different parts of their life. “You probably have a photo-realistic avatar for work, a stylized one for hanging out, maybe a fantasy one for gaming” says Mark on his keynote speech.
People will also be able to bring their avatar as well as virtual and digital items across different apps and experiences in the metaverse. Beyond that, people will have their own home space which they can design the way they want, store their digital goods and invite people over and even hangout. “Home space” is a personal space from which people can teleport anywhere they want around the metaverse with just a matter of clicking a link.
Users are able to bring any kind of media that can be presented digitally such as art, movies, books, photos from the physical world into the metaverse with. It provides the ability to move from one virtual room to another.
What makes the metaverse sound like a computer-generated universe is that it is considerate of procedures in the real world which takes ecosystem building, norm setting and new forms of governance. Privacy and safety are highly considered. The CEO explains about safety and privacy saying “you will get to decide when you want to be with other people, when you want to block someone from appearing in your space and when you want to take a break and teleport to a private bubble to be alone.”
