In October 2021, Mark Zuckerberg introduced The Metaverse. According to him, the Metaverse can be thought of as a time, not as a place.”
After this big revolution, the audience’s first question is ‘What is Metaverse?‘. Basically, the Metaverse is a virtual space that allows users to interact with one another in all aspects of their lives.
It can connect multiple media related to the internet containing different websites available on a single browser.
The other question comes from the audience: ‘Who is creating Metaverse?‘
Meta is the leading company designing a massive network (metaverse) of real-time 3D virtual worlds that maintains identity and payment information for users and players. Neal Stephenson invented this theory in the science-fiction book named Snow Crash.
Obviously, Neal thought metaverse was just a dream; however, now it looks like Neal’s dream has come true by Mark Zuckerberg in the future.
Difference Between Internet And Metaverse
The combination of billions of computers, millions of servers, and other electronic devices connected is known as the Internet.
Once you get connected to other devices, you can communicate with each other, view and connect with websites, and buy and sell goods and services.
The Metaverse will never compete with the Internet as it builds on it.
In the Metaverse, users travel to a virtual world that copy the features of the physical world using technologies such as social media, Artificial Intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and digital currency.
