What is Metaverse?
The term ‘MetaVerse’ combines the words ‘Meta’ and ‘UniVerse’, it is primarily used to refer to an anticipated future of the internet, and it is also expected to see the rise of online 3D or integrated virtual environment. There are also a lot of opportunities of jobs in Metaverse.
Metaverse is a digital reality that combines aspects of social media, online gaming, cryptocurrencies, Augmented Reality, and Virtual Reality and allows users to interact digitally.
An exact definition of the metaverse may be hard to explain because of its depths, but most technology experts agree, that the metaverse is a vast network where individuals via their avatars can interact socially and professionally,
“Metaverse” didn’t become a household term until Facebook changed its corporate name to Meta in October 2021. At that time, the company announced plans to spend $10 billion over the next year on technologies to build out its vision of the metaverse.
The metaverse is considered to be the next evolution of the internet. It will take many forms, including gaming, online communities, and business meetings where people will collaborate via digital facsimiles or avatars of themselves.
For Businesses, Bill Gates predicts that in the next two to three years most virtual meetings will move from two-dimensional square boxes to the metaverse — a 3D space with participants appearing as digital avatars and that would invite a lot of jobs in metaverse.
