The only thing I've ever seen on fb are cute animal vids
Facebook FB +0.05% recently announced it formed a “Social VR” team to build technology that creates new ways for people to have social experiences in virtual reality and to engage with Facebook’s network in virtual settings. The team will build for Oculus devices as well as other technology that’s available today, while also trying to anticipate the platforms of the future. Facebook unveiled the team on Sunday, the day before the Mobile World Congress began in Barcelona, Spain.

Personally, I think a huge stadium full of people wearing VR and experiencing some augmented, or virtual reality, would be friggen brilliant.
I play online games with people. If I could VR it, I would. pew pew..
The alex jones "God walking among men" shtick here doest bother me.
He still thinks they use dead babies to make pepsi.
The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.
This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. Our invisible governors are, in many cases, unaware of the identity of their fellow members in the inner cabinet.
The sad thing is, it's so true. Students sit in a classroom before class, no longer talking to each other, but surfing the Internet or chatting online. The scary thing is, what will their children be like?
