Virtual rooms in Facebook Metaverse
in one Facebook Post Bosworth wrote that much of the work at Facebook Reality Lab (FRL) is closely related to Zuckerberg’s Metaverse vision.
The hallmark of the metaverse will be presence – the feeling of truly being with people – and for years FRL has focused on developing products that advance presence in digital spaces.
The Facebook and Oculus product portal is already able to connect people “regardless of physical distance” or “teleport to new virtual worlds and experiences.”
For the Facebook Metaverse, the “connective tissue between these spaces” must also be built. Facebook wants to “remove the limitations of physics”.
