Where does the word Metaverse come from?

It was used for the first time in a science fiction novel called Snow Crash created by Neal Stephenson in 1992, this word in the story refers to a virtual plane parallel to the real world where we can interact with more people thanks to the convergence of our own tangible reality, that is, thanks to the meeting of two points that begin in different places and converge into one. 

Zuckerberg decided to call his new creation that because he says it will be very similar to what was developed in the comic.

What is the metaverse or metauniverse?

The metaverse is a virtual environment that can manifest in the next generation of the Internet where you can interact with each other and with virtual objects, representing yourself with avatars that you create, this is an immersive and multisensory experience that will occur through technological developments that several companies are working on, mainly Facebook and Microsoft.

What does it consist of?

The metaverse will be a platform where by logging in and programming your avatar you will be able to interact with people from different parts of the world, having a more natural experience when doing so, you will be able to exercise, work, go on dates among other activities that are already carried out virtually but without virtual or augmented reality.

A plus of the metaverse is that even if no one connects, it will continue to work, since they are focusing on increasing the feeling of parallel reality.

How will the metaverse work?

The Metaverse is a world that will work with various virtual environments where you can share with people who are not in the same physical space as you. 

This new form of interaction is aimed at improving the user experience, so that you can interact in a more natural way, then you can use gestures to give instructions and interact with others, for this reason virtual reality will be required.

The metaverse aims to resemble the real world as much as possible, so it tries to function like the real world, there you can work, study, go shopping, among other things you do in reality.

Economy in the Metaverse?

When the metaverse is working, digital and physical items can be sold that will be verified through NFT, Mark Zuckerberg will begin selling digital outfits to start an internal economy, the currency will be the cryptocurrencies that he is developing, the outfits will be to customize the avatars As the metaverse grows, people will be able to sell products and services in this virtual reality, which will be a new possibility of earning more from your business.

The new economy of the Metaverse will open the doors to companies that are looking to expand around the world.

On this platform you will be able to make yourself known in different markets, since it is planned that people from all over the world will communicate and interact with each other and that this experience will be so similar to reality that when you buy a product or service, people will have a very close to reality about its size and appearance 

So if you buy a t-shirt you can measure the t-shirt and know that it will fit you well. This will be very opportune for your company because they will be able to get loyal customers to what you offer. This is your opportunity to expand your business on a large scale, you will be able to increase your recognition, positioning and sales on this new platform that Facebook will launch.


Possible effects of the Metaverse that are noticed from psychology

Technology gives us many good things and many things that when used incorrectly become harmful, it all depends on how we use them. 

Society has not taught children and young people to control their desires and impulses, for this reason, when they like something they consume it until they create an addiction. Gamers can be an example of this; they are young people who spend more than 4 hours a day playing and socializing with others, so when they live their daily life or their real world it does not seem so attractive to them.

Something similar will happen with the Metaverse, people will create themselves as they want to be and not as they really are, they will create lives and have objects that will give them an image of themselves that will most likely not respond to 100% with their true physical and psychic identity.

 Therefore, this world will allow them to compensate for their shortcomings, which will most likely influence the time that people stay there, influencing the sense of reality that each human being must build and maintain for their psychic balance, and altering through this technology the way in which human interaction will be experienced, since human beings as social beings require the presence of others to learn and relearn many things in our lives.

The Metaverse can also have a good side that from psychology and with the conduct of research, studies and alternative therapies allow care for patients with different types of alterations, thus helping humanity.

In conclusion, we can say that the world that Mark Zuckerberg will create will be innovative and full of new opportunities to explore, the Metaverse will bring us closer to new cultures and places that we have not been able to visit physically, and a totally new economic system will be created that will work with cryptocurrencies. , where you can sell virtual and physical products, a world of possibilities opens up for merchants in this area. Tell me what your expectations are with the Facebook Metaverse.
