🤔

@yarmo Isn't it Facebook + Instagram + WhatsApp ?

@jkb technically yeah but all owned by the same company. It's not "interoperability" if it's one company with one big database.

Metaverse:
- meta

It is all too meta to even really ponder more on it.

@yarmo @jkb
Fairly speaking, the comparison is not correct: different kinds of services are compared to "different" owning companies. Right would be {Fosstodon, mastodon.social, social.tchncs.de, whatever_else_instance} vs {Facebook, Facebook, Facebook, Facebook}.

@yarmo who needs a Metaverse? We have got the Fediverse allready.

@wolf a metaverse would only make sense if it connected [insert_prefixes_here]verses => stop calling Facebook meta

C'est juste un changement de nom. Comme google qui est devenu alphabet mais on n'utilise jamais ce mot. C'est juste pour la bourse.

Comme Stelantis personne ne connait ce mot mais tout le monde conduit les voitures.

"Hey, you wanna join the Fediverse?"

"You mean *facebook*?"

"No, it's a decentralized alterna…"

"Yeah but they just renamed it and it's still facebook, right?"

"No, acshually, the fediverse is older than facebook's rebranding and run by an independent community of …"

"why do you nerds always make things so complicated? can't we just use twitter?"

@yarmo Facebook stays facebook... the gave facebook, instagram, whatsapp just a mother named meta.

@yarmo@fosstodon.org nevermind, only heard of it like a week ago myself

@yarmo@fosstodon.org also,
Metaverse:
- facebook
- whatsapp
- insta
- oculus
...
- world & dog (everyone they sell your data)

@yarmo I mean realistically, it's gonna be oculus, instagram, facebook, whatsapp, etc., but from now on to spite them I'm going to call everything associated with them as Facebook
@nergal @yarmo we should create a one way bridge and then repeatedly claim that the metaverse is only a small, isolated island in the great fediverse sea.

Then we refer to "metaverse" as "infraverse".

@mwt
could that lead to roanoake levels of catastrophe? large amounts of people instantly going missing with no tell of where or how?
