It has been about 8 months since Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the change of the social media giant's name to "Meta", explaining that he would focus his efforts and the future of his company on "Metaverse", which he asserted is "the future of the Internet". ".

Zuckerberg seemed very serious, talking enthusiastically about the ability of metaverses to change "the look and future of social media and the Internet itself."

Zuckerberg defined metaverses as "an immersive virtual environment where you can actually be with people in the digital environment and digital society, we can think of it as the Internet embodied, in which you actually exist instead of just looking at it as it is happening now."

"I think of metaverses as the next generation of the Internet... Instead of the Internet being an external screen that we look at on our mobile phones or computer screens, it will become a part of us and we will become a part of it," Zuckerberg explained. "The Internet of the future is something we can be inside."

Since that time, the word metaphysics has become one of the most widely used terms in the world.

Currently, tens of billions of dollars of investments are being pumped into this immersive virtual environment by major companies and countries of the world, everyone wants to be part of this future that Zuckerberg talked about, and it suffices to know - in this context - that Microsoft has allocated 70 billion dollars to invest in this future, while the company "Meta" itself allocated 10 billion dollars for the same purpose, not to mention tens of billions of dollars allocated by companies and other countries from around the world for the same goal.

In fact, this is not entirely surprising, as in Metaverse people can work, play, shop and communicate in an unprecedented way, which means the beginning of the end of the social media that we know now, and entering the time of other communication platforms that are more realistic and more connected through Metavirus, as I mentioned Analytics insight platform recently.

It is a network of 3D virtual worlds focused on communication between humans.

Metaverse is a virtual platform that allows developers to create everything from virtual reality to augmented reality, and metaverse is a niche product compared to traditional social media and other major products.
