According to the creator of the term metaverse, he has nothing to do with Facebook’s plans

CEO Mark Zuckerberg has also announced that huge investments will be made in what he calls the metaverse virtual world

This will cause some headaches for the creator of the term. Sci-fi writer Neal Stephenson, whose term first appeared in his 1992 book “Snow Crash,” let people know on social media that he was certainly not involved in the company’s quest to make the metaverse a reality of some sort.

“As there seems to be a growing confusion about this: I have nothing to do with what the FB is planning for the metaverse, apart from the obvious fact that a term is used that Snow Crash- There was zero communication between me and the FB & no business relationship “- tweeted Stephenson.

Stephenson told the Vanity Fair in 2017 that he just” figured the shit out “when first wrote about the idea of ​​the metaverse – what is generally seen as a digital world in which people work through avatars with virtual and augmented reality, allowing them to move between both digital and physical spaces, and the border ok

As part of the Facebook Meta redesign, the company will delete the Oculus VR headset brand and rename it Meta Quest. It also made other structural changes to reflect the increased focus on metaversion efforts that Zuckerberg spoke about at the annual Facebook Connect conference on Thursday.

The new brand name was introduced when Meta and its flagship product, Facebook faced a public inquiry after it emerged that the company knew much more about how the social network harms individuals and society than it had previously acknowledged.

the revelations come from documents sent to Congress, regulators and the press that were leaked by Frances Haugen, an informant and former Facebook employee. Zuckerberg called it “ridiculous” on Thursday if they thought he changed Facebook’s name to distract people from the company’s latest contradictions.
