It’s also the company’s first big VR event since Facebook’s renaming to Meta was announced by Mark Zuckerberg during Connect last fall. At that time, the CEO was trying to clarify his vision of the metaverse and the role of the social network in it. But this vision has not always been very clear. And the idea of ​​a “metaverse” still remains confusing. And sometimes even derision, as the reaction to Mark Zuckerberg’s avatar showed. Meta Connect will also be an opportunity for the giant to arouse interest around its latest product as well as a possible metaverse which is still struggling to convince.
