Virtual reality to keep under control

Facebook Spaces aims at become a meeting place for everyone. We will have total control of our VR experience, and we will have the option to pause the tool at any time. Pausing allows you to move in a quiet space in which to get away from other people and activities. Among the various options, you can choose to disable some friends or remove them from our Facebook Spaces. The connection with friends and family aims at mutual trust, so that VR remains a positive place for everyone. The risk that we want to avoid that this new experience, even more realistic, can degenerate into something unpleasant or even dangerous. The past experiences of 3D worlds have not been very successful. But Facebook Spaces a whole other thing: for the first time the "inhabitants" of virtual reality are friends (or presumed such) therefore the power to convince oneself to be in reality much higher, with all that follows, for good and in bad.

When Facebook Spaces will be available

For now the beta version being launched and people who own an Oculus Rift can download it: in fact available in the viewer store. The new dimension of Facebook will certainly be added as soon as it starts, as Facebook receives feedback, in order to make the virtual reality experience more meaningful and available on multiple platforms over time. There social VR seems to have started and aims to transform the way people around the world can stay in touch with their communities and loved ones.
