Facebook’s Meta – New Phase of Social Connection, and bringing “Metaverse” to Life.

1 min read

Mark Zuckerberg has laid out his vision of the metaverse as a set of interconnected digital spaces that allow you do things you can’t do in the physical world. 

Social experiences are a big part of it, the feeling of being right there with someone, regardless of where you are. He also announced a new brand for the company, Meta, to better reflect their focus going forward. The company calls its version “the Metaverse.” This will be an exciting new phase for the company, and they’re excited to help bring the metaverse to life.

Even though the metaverse isn’t ready yet, parts of it are now available… and more are on the way. Meta’s goal is to enhance virtual and augmented reality as we know it. As part of the metaverse’s future social development, steps are being taken to help the company demonstrate its full potential.

Social Media Giant Facebook gave a keynote presentation on in lieu of the company’s ambition to unveil a framework for creating a 3-D virtual world which they call the Metaverse. Although this presentation also included a $150 million fund to spur use among its customer base.

The company says that part of its vision includes an important role for non-fungible tokens or NFTs, which are representations of digital objects, artworks and more backed by a unique piece of data on a blockchain. Precisely how NFTs will fit into this vision is unclear, based on the presentation, though Zuckerberg referred to “digital goods” as part of the user experience.

Meta Platforms Inc., formerly known as Facebook is an American multinational technology conglomerate holding company based in Menlo Park, California. It is the parent organization of Facebook and its subsidiaries. With over 2.8 billion monthly active users, it is ranked seventh in global internet usage. One of its conglomerates, Facebook, was the most downloaded mobile app of the 2010s.

Facebook NFT Plan

Facebook is taking it big as it invests largely in innovative ideas and methods to build a much bigger community. Although few of these moves have been critically analysed and discussed by experts.

Their involvement in the NFT ecosystem is another indication that giant social media platforms aren’t taking the side bench in the implementation of NFTs in their business. Non Fungible Tokens has seen rapid growth in the last couple of months with various NFT marketplaces sprung out to meet up different demands of both collectors and peculiar stakeholders in this ecosystem.

Past comments from Facebook Financial head David Marcus suggest that:

‘NFTs could be a part of the offering from Novi, which grew out of Facebook’s crypto and stablecoin efforts. “It’s too early to talk about our plans, but we’re definitely looking at a number of plans to get involved in the space because we’re in a good position to do so.”
