Couldn’t find one, but there’s an older article on the same topic from last year it seems.
Oh how wonderful, exactly the change we needed. I bet they will be soooo much better now.
I’m a bit miffed that they didn’t use my suggestion: Facecrook.
Or mine: Fecky McFeckface
We should rebrand to MetaSafe
safeverse which is not so safe for children (unless someone makes a WoT app/search engine/social media/nextcloud thingy to keep children safe)
saved it like a pro
Feacesbook as one of my more caustically-witted friends calls it.
They are all bad, but hey, got to have the boogie men to roll this world agenda forwards.
They all play their part, the world economic forum thanks them for their co-operation
The Metaverse: like these virtual 3d meetings where everyone has an avatar (a kind of cartoon version of himself)? That Metaverse will be a fait divers (like 3D televisions) in the big scheme of things IMHO. What is the added value of this compared to simple videoconferencing?
My impression is more akin to say Decentraland (have you visited?) or in Facebook’s case I pressume the evolution toward social interaction more in line with they are doing with Oculus.
I have not used VR for a while but it seems that what they are doing there makes metaverse the logical next step for the company.
As much as I can’t stand FB this is probably going to keep them relevant.
The US trying to further encircle Russia.
I just traveled Ukraine. Talking to the locals, since the US backed revolution 2014 in Ukraine, corruption has easily doubled consuming 30% of the national budget. The US backed presidential puppet, an actor, pushes division between Russians and Ukrainians when in fact they are very close cousins. The US has cousins shooting at each other. It’s sad and disgusting.
Not just the US itself, its the banker tribe that supports/controls them.
A post was split to a new topic: Travel
I’m not following it that much, certainly the VR stuff. I don’t see the added value in VR/3d simulation videoconferencing compared to normal ones: making things needlessly complicated. Future will tell and there could be other (Meta → Oculus) VR usages that will be more successful.
Looks like augmented may be the winner.
Anyway if anyone here is interested the last video has an hour of Mark explaining where they see it going.
They obviously have the data to know where things are going
They need to get rid of Zuckerberg if they have any chance of rebranding
