Episode #7 - Facebook Announces 10k New EU Jobs to Build the Metaverse

ARVR Magazine Podcast

Oct 22 2021 • 21 mins

In today’s episode of the AR/VR Magazine Podcast, I discuss the latest announcement that Facebook will be creating 10k jobs in the European Union over the next 5 years to build the Metaverse.

I will be sharing my thoughts one this as well as touching on some additional rumors that Facebook may be announcing a company name change in the next couple of weeks.


In the podcast, I said that the term “Metaverse” was based on the book “Ready Player One” by Ernest Cline. It was actually based on the book: “Snow Crash” by Neal Stephenson. Both books are equally relevant regarding the topic, however. I read them both at the same time, so I always mix them up.
