Meta VR ecosystem will no longer require a Facebook profile to login: Connected Church News

Meta made an important announcement that starting August 2022, you do not require a Facebook profile for your VR… Social VR interactions, inside the Meta’s virtual reality space like Horizon World and Meta Quest headset, etc. So far, you needed a Facebook profile to do anything inside that. Now Mark Zuckerberg is creating the gap, or widening the gap, between Facebook and Meta as a brand, especially in the Metaverse. People can now create their own fresh Meta account without carrying over any Facebook’s history. All those years of data from Facebook, you don’t have to carry over to the meta verse. You can have a fresh start in the metaverse, create an account, create a profile, and move forward. I think it’s good. It might bring back few people who are not comfortable with things that has to do with Facebook. It might bring more audience. And the metaverse is full of ministry opportunities for churches and ministries. So it seems to be a good thing.
