What Is The Metaverse
According to Tweet from the @meta account, the Metaverse is a place where people will play and converse in 3D. So Meta was created in order to help create said metaverse. This will be a brand new innovative way of connecting with people.
The metaverse is the next evolution of social connection. It’s a collective project that will be created by people all over the world, and open to everyone. You’ll be able to socialize, learn, collaborate and play in ways that go beyond what’s possible today.
So the @meta Twitter account definitely puts an emphasis on the fact that, thanks to the Metaverse, people will be able to get “closer” or should write “feel” closer to their families, friends and other types of connections.
As regards to the apps Whatsapp, Instagram, Messenger and Instagram, so far no changes will be made. Meta tells us that “the apps we own will remain the same”.
The creation of the Metaverse has created 10,000 jobs in Europe.
