Only a couple of years after buying Oculus Rift for $2 billion, it seems that Facebook’s bet on virtual reality is about to pay off. Mark Zuckerberg recently revealed that his intention is for the burgeoning platform to be a social experience.
“The thing that’s really striking is that when you have another person there, the whole thing inherently becomes social,” Zuckerberg tells Wired. “It’s not a game. There’s no points. There’s no score. There’s no objective. But people find ways to interact. And they’re novel ways of interacting.”
