In todays episode of weekly code quikes we have Facebook going Meta! changing its name to Meta and we are also taking a look at Web 3.0.
Facebook is changing it’s name to Meta.
The company that owns Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook cald facebook, is as of Oct 28 known as Meta. Witch seamns like kind of just rebranding strategy, but acording to the CEO of the company formerly known as Mark Zuckerberg, Master o the metavers. Mark Zuckerberg, ” Meta’s focus will be to bring the metaverse to life and help people connect, find communities and grow businesses “.
Mark also sad that “The metaverse will feel like a hybrid of today’s online social experiences, sometimes expanded into three dimensions or projected into the physical world.” What he probably meant by this is that Oculus for three dimensions and augmented reality for projections. Continuing on he sad “It will let you share immersive experiences with other people even when you can’t be together — and do things together you couldn’t do in the physical world. It’s the next evolution in a long line of social technologies, and it’s ushering in a new chapter for our company.”
Ok, so whats the untold story here?
Facebook I mean (Meta) dose have the biggest user base but not the biggest jong user base and also fails to attract new user. The fact that you need a facebook account in order to create a Instagram Account made it pretty obvies that facebook is loosing user, and going I need to underline NEW USER, existing user do not make inversters happy because of something cold life time inestment in to a user/ buyer. Something that all you marketers out there make your Spider scences tingle. In other words the most valuebel user is the one that you indoctrinate as jung as possible and keep until death parts you. Remember, CoKaCola invented santaclouse and christmas, and put a bottle of coke in the hand of a polar bare making one of the bast adds in the history of adds, all from the good of there heart acours with no deep lungturm brainwashing intensions in mind.
When The master of the Metavers, Master Zuck seats down in the borad meeting and they ask, So Zucki, what’s the plan, whats the next step for increasing our delicious add money! The average user attention span is now down to only 5sec, wee need more seconds Zucki, wee need more seconds!!! Zuck jumps up the table in his kimono runs over to the outraged bord member, dros his katana , and dose a Lucy Liu from kill bill on him and says “I control all the seconds in the Metavers”.
Sorry I got lost in my own augmeanted reality!
At the end of the they Meta formaly known as Facebook whants you entier atention, in order for them to geter all your data so sell it to the hiest bidder and kontrol the market.
Or maybi Im just crazzy and they thrly wish just to unite families and frands so we kan all leave in a huggy fuzzy world!
We introduced Horizon Home, our early vision for a home base in the metaverse. This is the first thing you see when you put on your Quest headset. Until now, it’s just been called Home because the experience wasn’t social. Soon, you’ll be able to invite your friends to join you in Horizon Home, where you can hang out, watch videos, and jump into games and apps together.
Messenger calls in VR
Earlier this year we launched Messenger support in VR, letting you send a quick message to friends from inside the headset. But why type when you can talk? Later this year, we’re bringing Messenger audio calls to VR. You’ll be able to jump into an audio call with friends from any Messenger-enabled platform and eventually hang out or travel to VR destinations together.
From AR chess with longtime friends to intense battles with new ones, gaming is certain to be as prevalent in the metaverse as it is today. During the Connect Keynote, we shared that Beat Saber recently surpassed $100 million USD in gross lifetime revenue on the Quest Platform alone — and teased some exciting new updates for the coming months.
