• Mark Zuckerberg beginning of the next chapter for the internet. In recent decades, technology has given people the power to connect and express themselves more naturally. When I started Facebook, we mostly typed text on websites.
  • When we got phones with cameras, the internet became more visual and mobile. As connections got faster, the video became a richer way to share experiences. We’ve gone from desktop to web to mobile; from text to photos to video.
  • But this isn’t the end of the line.

  • The next platform will be even more immersive — and embodied internet where you’re in the experience, not just looking at it. We call this the metaverse, and it will touch every product we build.
  • The defining quality of the metaverse will be a feeling of presence — like you are right there with another person or in another place. Feeling truly present with another person is the ultimate dream of social technology.
  • That is why we are focused on building this.
  • In the metaverse, you’ll be able to do almost anything you can imagine — get together with friends and family, work, learn, play, shop, create — as well as completely new experiences that don’t really fit how we think about computers or phones today.
  • We made a film that explores how you might use the metaverse one day.
  • In the future, you will be able to teleport instantly as a hologram to be at the office without a commute, at a concert with friends, or in your parents’ living room to catch up. This will open up more opportunities no matter where you live.
  • You’ll be able to spend more time on what matters to you, cut down time in traffic, and reduce your carbon footprint.
