Mark Zuckerberg has announced Facebook will be known as a 'Metaverse Company'
In late June, the CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg announced to his employees the overall future direction the company would be taking. Facebook is working on building an all-out, interconnected virtual universe like something you'd see out of the movie Ready Player One, also known as the 'Metaverse'.
The section of Facebook that is primarily focused on creating products for creators, e-commerce, communities, and most importantly virtual reality, will be start to ramp up work to see this mission through. Zuckerberg says, "What is the most interesting part of this is how themes will combine to create a bigger idea... Our overall goal spanning these initiatives is to aid to bring the metaverse into existence".
