Some time at the beginning of the COVID pandemic, I thought that Facebook should give away their Oculus Quest to anyone who wanted one. I mean, this is like the perfect storm to massively introduce VR as a new way to interact with each other.
A couple of days ago Facebook launched their answer to the video hangout explosion caused by the pandemic. And today, on my morning visit to the platform, I noticed that lots of my “friends” were showing off their new avatars. This seemed strange, why introduce something that seems already kind of old within the tech trends?
Then it clicked.
Facebook is preparing us to start migrating part of our life to the virtual world.
