Let’s have a look at the top 10 metaverse platforms that will replace social media in the future.
The Metaverse is a graphically rich virtual world, with some degree of verisimilitude, where people can work, play, shop, and socialize. It is a network of 3D virtual worlds focused on social connection. A metaverse platform is a virtual platform that allows developers to create everything from virtual reality to augmented reality. Metaverse is a technology segment that has come to a long way and investments by top tech companies like the Meta Platforms, Microsoft, and Epic Games, have helped accelerate its growth. The metaverse is considered a niche product in comparison to social media and other mainstream products. While it’s impossible to say when the metaverse will replace social networks, it will certainly unlock new social and financial benefits, unlike anything we have seen before.
