Facebook is quickly adopting the concept of the metaverse as a buzzword in technology, business, and is encouraging its adoption.

But what does it all mean? Here we explain.

What is the metaverse? 

Metaverse is a broad term. It refers to shared virtual world environments that people can access via the Internet.

This term can be used to describe digital spaces that are more lifelike through the use of virtual reality (VR), or augmented reality.

People also use the term metaverse to describe gaming universes. In these worlds, users can interact with other players through a character that can walk around.

There is also a metaverse that uses blockchain technology. 

These allow users to purchase virtual land and other digital assets with cryptocurrencies.

Many science fiction books and films are set in fully-fledged metaverses – alternative digital worlds which are indistinguishable from the real physical world. 

This is fiction, however.

Virtual spaces often look more like videogames than real life.

Facebook Inc. under fire from regulators and lawmakers over its business practices, is planning to rebrand itself with a new name that focuses on the metaverse, the Verge reported.

Facebook has embraced the metaverse concept.

It’s a great idea!

The metaverse is a stage in the evolution of the internet, according to some.

People can interact online at the moment by visiting websites like social media platforms or messaging apps. 

The idea of the metaverse is that it will create new online spaces in which people’s interactions can be more multi-dimensional, where users are able to immerse themselves in digital content rather than simply viewing it.

The Covid-19 pandemic is responsible for the accelerated interest in metaverse. 

There has been an increase in demand for online interaction as more people work remotely and go to school remotely.
