Facebook aside, how do you think Metaverse will impact content creation (i.e. blogging) in years to come? If it really takes off, will VR and AR replace Content Marketing and blogging as we know today, or will it just be an additional way of consuming content without replacing blogging? Just as the internet did not entirely replace books.
The huge downside of course is that the impact of the Internet has allowed a lot of people to work from home and even spend most of their lives in their house without having to go out into the world. This will go even further in making it possible for people to live their whole lives indoors without actually socially interacting with people in real life on a one to basis rather than a virtual world.
I don’t think that in the long run that’s good for humanity. It also creates an opportunity for big Tech and the government to be far far more intrusive in our everyday lives and find out a lot more about us and what we say and think.
Also, these innovations are more often than not adopted by younger generations (just look at Tik Tok as an example). Everyone that is in their thirties or older won’t even bother with it. As such, there’s still going to plenty of people willing to consume blogs.
Last but not least: I saw a stat recently that only 50% of the world’s population currently has access to the internet. Even if a certain percentage will move to voice or AR/VR, they’re likely going to be offset by the number of people that finally receive access to the internet..
