Facebook To Put The "Social" In Virtual Reality

How do you make virtual reality, which is inherently anti-socialآ—social? Well, that is what Facebook wants to figure out, which has just announced a dedicated "Social VR" team to tackle the issue. I am going to shoot myself if I see any trending stories on my display.

The new team will work with both Oculus and other teams at Facebook to explore the future of social interaction in VR. "This team will explore how people can connect and share using today's VR technology, as well as long-term possibilities as VR evolves into an increasingly important computing platform," the company wrote in an official blog post.
