How is the Metaverse different from the Social Media?
In short, SocialMedia is a content feeding mechanism, while the Metaverse is a place you could hang out in real-time.
Social Media is often used to share “edited” moments and information via text, image, and video (and you are reading one of them right now!). You have no idea how much time someone has spent taking and editing that perfect travel photo that you feel envious about.
In contrast, people are often fully “present” inside the Metaverse. While people inside the virtual reality may not reveal their true identity, they will greet you by waving their virtual hands and strike up a conversation with you. You are essentially sharing “unedited” moments with them, just like you would with people in real life.
Where do you see yourself spending more of your time in the near future?
