Zuckerberg has Some Ambitious Plans for Facebook

Cut to 2017, Facebook in a "giant leap for mankind" or so Zuckerberg assumes, has launched Facebook Spaces marrying virtual reality to social media, two of the reigning dictators responsible for our fast growing human utopia.

He first revealed it last year and, according to it, Facebook wants to integrate augmented and virtual reality, along with artificial intelligence, into real, palpable parts of the business over the following 10 years. Place the orb in the center of the blue table you're gathered around, and everyone is transported into the experience. If you've ever created a Nintendo Mii, the experience is very similar. The avatars aren't the most life-like, but they're more of a huge step up from a character you would create on the Wii. Find us on Facebook too!

Users don't have to download any extra software on their phones to take advantage of the new features. For example, a group of far-flung friends can act as though they're hanging out in person using Spaces.

The way the Facebook Spaces works is to create avatars out of the Facebook users and you can pick them from your Facebook Messenger contacts list.

To be fair, Facebook isn't the only company that approaches AR this way. Instead of waiting for headsets to evolve to a glasses-like form factor that will be accepted by consumers for daily use, Facebook is hitting the ground running, giving developers early access to this technology to explore what's possible and seed its AR platform with apps and effects.

Memphis lawyer tells rape trial jury women are 'good' at lying
While a local women's group called his defense strategy "absolutely despicable", the attorney seemed to be unfazed. The prosecution said Giannini brutally raped the victim and she had to go to the hospital due to her injuries.

Facebook Spaces is now in beta but can already be downloaded for free through the Oculus Store. As an incentive, however, the company is integrating its other products into Spaces.

I know you've just watched one cringey video, but I'm going to make you watch another that illustrates one of these interactions.

But at this point, there's not a lot you can do once you've logged in. Now, he's acknowledging he not only overestimated virtual reality's short-term potential, but also underestimated the smartphone's ability to serve as a virtual veneer in the interim. Farmville in VR, anyone? We actually experienced a few different "spaces" during our demo.

Facebook announced three new developments to enhance 360 video streaming technology. If your friend doesn't have the Oculus setup you can still call chat with them through messenger by calling them in your virtual world.

At your disposal are a set of tools in a panel in front of you, such as pencils that let you doodle in the air or masks you can put on yourself or your companions.

While Indiana is coming into the playoffs hot with a five-game winning streak as the team is finally clicking on all cylinders. He was signed March 13 and the Cavs held a team option for next season, but they relinquished that right by waiving him.

Virtual and augmented reality apps are not new.

It's arguably more social than Facebook itself. "With this new feature, you'll see insights such as changes in purchases for a new version of your app, or variations in engagement across people in different cities". "We will keep doing what we can to prevent tragedies like this from happening".

But the social aspect is the key component of Spaces. But what does this push mean for marketers and the future of commerce, and as Facebook plays with the morphing of reality, where will it draw the line? It's the new exciting and immersive way to interact with friends, wherever they are.

Using Facebook Spaces feels real, primarily because the combination of the Oculus Rift and the Oculus Touch functions as a motion capture studio. What the company needs to do is bring the app to more accessible VR platforms, like Google's Daydream and (more likely) Samsung's Gear VR.
