Facebook has just rebranded themselves as Meta. With this bold move they said they envisioned the future as an immersive experience by combining both virtual and augmented reality. Mark Z said in his founder letter that the defining quality of Meta would be the "feeling of presence". With the improvements in VR headsets, AR glasses and our phones, this really sounds like the beginning of something spectacular.

We can't wait to figure out what their digital marketing options would look like, and even how ads will be served. And with the promise of "get together with friends and family, work, learn, play, shop, ect", it kind of sounds like you could be visiting virtual rooms like your favorite places in the world, cinemas, restaurants with this alternative reality.

This sounds really intriguing, and we can't wait to see what surprises the social media giant has in-store, but we are also curious about how their shady overreaching data collection practices will find its way into the Meta universe as well.

See you in the Metaverse.
