At the current rate at which Facebook is going, the average person doesn’t really know where the social media giant will be in the next five years. However, Mark Zuckerberg has given us a bit of an inkling as to where the website is headed int the future!
Zuckerberg has said himself that “VR is the next platform, where anyone can create and experience anything they want.” It’s possible that in five years Facebook is going to be almost wholly experienced in the VR world. Of course, there’s a chance that it won’t catch on; VR has been a technological white what for a long time. But if it does catch on, it could come online as fast as video did for the platform. And once the tipping point is reached, too many people will be interacting in the virtual world to ignore it. We’ll move past the event horizon without knowing it, and eventually job interviews, visits with the in-laws, office meetings, and any other face-to-face communication done at a distance, will be done in Facebook’s virtual world.
