Mark in the Metaverse

"Think about the metaverse as an embodied Internet, where instead of just viewing content, you are in it. And you feel present with other people as if you were in other places, having different experiences that you couldn't necessarily [have] on a 2D app or webpage."

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently told his employees about an ambitious new initiative that would shift the company's business model toward a maximalist, interconnected set of experiences straight out of sci-fi—a world known as the metaverse..

In an interview, he discusses that vision, the challenges of governing it, the pandemic and misinformation, and gender imbalance in virtual reality today. "The metaverse isn't just virtual reality.
