Forget Social Media — We’re Heading Into the Metaverse
The theme of the last 15 years has been “social media.”
With widespread internet, more websites popped up to help users socialize digitally.
Think Myspace, Twitter and Facebook.
Millennials, entering their teens right around 2000, had a front-row seat for it all.
When I entered college in 2007, my classmates used Facebook for everything. Study sessions, dorm parties, movie nights — you name it.
My professors told us to tweet for office hours.
Then the “blogosphere” took off. Within four years, the college paper would be digital only.
By 2013, I met my husband on a dating app.
And I applied to my position at Banyan Hill on the Monster.com app.
Granted, I’m an extreme example.
But the fact remains that people are posting their entire lives on social media.
Companies boast: “Follow us on social media.”
TV shows encourage viewers to tune in for the actors’ live-tweets on Twitter.
“Social media influencer” is an actual career.
But this is all about to change thanks to the “metaverse.”
As we’ve written before, the metaverse is where the digital and physical world intersect. Think augmented reality and virtual reality.
Soon, we won’t be posting on social media. We’ll be living our lives in the metaverse.
