So, how would a spatial Facebook look like?
We’ve gone through the AT route before. We can only hope that with AR devices, we’re an active participant, unlike Google Glass, which rather made us a passive observer of the world around us. Take for example, ‘On This Day’ memories on the social network site. Facebook AR might let you relive memories in its own idiosyncratic way. You look at the porch and see where you took that family picture of your grandparents. Right below it are the reactions and comments. Think of all the possibilities! AR social media would also focus on the future of social interaction in a virtual world. You could be playing ping pong with your cousin in Australia whom you’ve only met once. You could throw virtual eggs at your neighbor for throwing the loud roof top party.
i like to think that we haven’t even scratched the surface. but, let’s not get hung up, after all, this timeline is crucial. it highlights the trajectory of value that AR can offer in various contexts.
