A Facebook project can hire 10,000 highly-skilled people in the European Union over the next five years. It’s about metaverse. Explained, metaverse it as a “set of virtual spaces where you can create and explore with other people who aren’t in the same physical space as you”. “You will be able to hang out with friends, work, play, learn, shop, create and more,” the company added. In other words, it’s all about virtual reality at an elevated level in our century. “Interacting online can become much closer to the experience of interacting in person,” Facebook said. No one company will run the metaverse – it will be an “embodied internet,” Zuckerberg said, operated by many different players in a decentralized way. Facebook used the opportunity to appreciate Europe as „a big part of our success.” The EU has a number of advantages that make it a great place for tech companies to invest – a large consumer market, first-class universities and, crucially, top-quality talent.” Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg is committed to achieve this project considering it will help even experts in government, industry and academia.
Previously, the company tested a VR remote working app on its Oculus platform, which allowed users to use the Quest 2 headset to hold meetings using avatar versions of themselves. The future of the company is linked to the new project. It will cost billions of dollars.
