Is the Metaverse a Success Or a Failure?
The Metaverse is a new genre of digital experiences that will be available to us in the future. This includes VR/AR roleplaying games, workplace collaboration platforms and virtual events supported by VR headsets.

The metaverse is a shared digital universe that will offer an alternative reality to our current physical world. It’s an immersive environment that can be accessed by a smartphone or VR headset and will ideally be accessed through a single gateway.
Users will be able to move between different worlds and interact with their friends and colleagues in these spaces, a feature that’s reminiscent of the forest in The Nightmare Before Christmas. Unlike other virtual worlds, the metaverse won’t be owned by one entity, but will instead emerge with a constellation of companies and independent developers operating under some agreed-upon protocols.
Whether the Metaverse is a success or a failure will depend on how well it is embraced by the general public. A recent survey of technology innovators, business leaders and activists found that while 54% believed the Metaverse would be a fully-immersive, well-functioning aspect of life by 2040, 46% thought it wouldn’t be.
The problem with Zuckerberg’s vision is that he’s trying to force a sci-fi reality into existence before people want or need it, something that many experts think is simply not a good idea.
Thankfully, there are plenty of other companies and communities that are building the metaverse and have already made a significant impact on society, including gaming companies such as Epic Games and Autodesk, who’ve built countless popular virtual worlds. Other players in the metaverse include social media giants like Facebook and Instagram, which are developing platforms to help connect users to each other and make the experience of being part of a Metaverse more fun and rewarding.
