So what is the Facebook metaverse?

To understand what the metaverse is, one must know that the term comes from the prefix “meta” (beyond) and “universe”; that is to say, “beyond the universe”.

And you feel present with other people as if you were in other places, having different experiences that you could hardly have in a 2D application or on a web page: such as dancing or practicing different types of exercises », mentions Zuckerberg in an interview with the medium The Verge.
