It kind of all comes back to Facebook wanting to figure out how to work in VR, and have VR work with everything else…and not have everyone need to work in VR. Because most people aren’t in VR when they’re being virtual. From last year: https://t.co/1hEMNH7Se7— Scott Stein (@jetscott) August 19, 2021

just because FB uses the word metaverse to describe a dumb product that’s gonna fail doesn’t mean that you have to use that word too in fact it might even be your job to just use common language to describe the dumb thing— Julia Carrie Wong (@juliacarriew) August 19, 2021
Introducing Horizon Workrooms on @Oculus Quest 2: your new virtual meeting room to sketch ✍️, brainstorm? and collaborate with your team ? — no matter where you are. We think it’s one of the best ways to work if you can’t be physically in the same room. pic.twitter.com/YcbYKtzUGj— Facebook (@Facebook) August 19, 2021
ZUCKERBERG: “I don't think that this suggests in any way that we're going to try to become an enterprise company, but I do think that work is going to be one of the key use cases that people try to do in the metaverse.”— Carl Quintanilla (@carlquintanilla) August 19, 2021

so let me get this straight: the company that has helped millions of people “awaken through Q” and destroyed families and governments would like you to hold all of your most important and expensive conversations inside of its “Metaverse”— drew olanoff (@yoda) August 19, 2021
I'd like the interview the first company to use the Facebook VR meeting thing, because I always like interviewing the final company to use something.— Dan Primack (@danprimack) August 19, 2021
Also Facebook reallllly showed slack who’s boss with their work product didn’t they— drew olanoff (@yoda) August 19, 2021
Everyone: can you please stop Facebook from spreading disinformation that’s prolonging the pandemic and contributing to the downfall of democracy— Jess Dweck (@TheDweck) August 19, 2021
Mark Zuckerberg: no but what if I made zoom worse
I’m no fan of Facebook, but I do fully embrace virtual workspaces. I find working remotely is more efficient, and I’m more productive because I’ve invested into my home office. Definitely ready to abandon brick and mortar. #DecentralizeBusiness https://t.co/KmRQQQHWe1— Hilluminati (@bryanedwardhill) August 19, 2021
a real tension of designing new wfh tools is whether to ease the transition by making things feel like they were when we were in office or by trying to get us to change what work is/means. one way is meh/insidious and the other could be quite meaningful https://t.co/Meq4RSO2f1— Charlie Warzel (@cwarzel) August 19, 2021
By the way, VR Remote work is a terrible idea.— Dmitry Grozoubinski (@DmitryOpines) August 19, 2021
The Oculus is nice and I absolutely recommend one for gaming, but wearing one for more than an hour is painful, exhausting and dizzying.
I'm also just very unclear on what problem this VR App is supposed to be solving.
Here’s @alexeheath on Facebook’s new VR conference room tech, including clips of Zuck and Boz expounding in VR. Love that some people were on Zoom on a VR conference room TV; I hope the system recreates crappy conference room AV as well https://t.co/3G472Pa44p— nilay patel (@reckless) August 19, 2021
"Steal my DNA and do something actually fucked up and weird and bad! Clone my ass, Zuck! Send my roboclones to fight in a space war against the Boston Dynamics dog robots while I bathe in a pod of goo! I want THAT. I don’t want more work meetings."https://t.co/tvj9zl8RMb— Brandon Hardin (@hardin) August 19, 2021
If Facebook execs were in charge of Estonia’s digital development, we would be sending our avatars to virtually queue for government services. So glad we had early innovators who realised tech can also give people new ways of working and more time instead. https://t.co/VGJDH9ls03— Adam Rang (??/??) (@adamrangpr) August 20, 2021
