Connect 2021 happened on Thrusday October 28, 2021 where Facebook rebranded to Meta on their path towards becoming a Metaverse company, and they provided a lot of vague, speculative designs for some of the social experiences that they can imagine happening in the Metaverse over the next decade. Because it is a bit unclear for how to judge and evaluate this speculative designs built on open standards and interoperability, then I thought I’d invite on Road to VR’s co-founder and executive editor Ben Lang to unpack it all. We reflect on Meta’s vision of the Metaverse, their past behaviors around content interoperability, and break down some of their other claims around architecting the Metaverse with privacy in mind.
