A Beginner’s Guide to the Metaverse

When it was announced that Facebook will now be known as “Meta,” a lot of hype grew around the Metaverse and the many possibilities it could offer.

What Is the Metaverse?

Being a world full of possibilities, it’s no wonder that many think that the Metaverse will completely transform our way of life. Even mundane tasks like work meetings can become an exciting experience in the Metaverse!

Imagine living in a world where your greatest dreams, or nightmares, could be realized. Well, that world is just around the corner!

The Metaverse is not just a passive 3D environment; instead, individuals can fill the Metaverse with their imagination and create a reality of their own from the ground up!

For the Minecraft players out there, the Metaverse also has a “Creative Mode” where users can design their own world as well as enter into and interact with other worlds.

What Can You Do in the Metaverse?

On that note, you’re probably wondering what you can actually do in the Metaverse. As of now, there are a few main activities that you can pursue.


While still in its infancy, the Metaverse is full of many games that you can play. Imagine actually being inside your favorite shooter game or entering into a Medevil world about to be attacked by a hoard of orcs! Eventually, 2D games will become a relic of the past as truly immersive games take center stage.


Believe it or not, you can exercise in the Metaverse, and it is usually a result of playing an intense game. For example, instead of going for a run, why not strap yourself into a harness and run from a hoard of zombies?


Imagine having the best setup imaginable… Well, since your imagination is the limit, you can truly have the ultimate setup. You can even mimic Batman’s setup—where your office is a virtual cave and an AI version of Alfred is at your side ready to help.

On top of that, virtual meetings will no longer be a pain. Instead of meeting on Zoom or Google Meet, meet your co-workers on top of the virtual Pyramid of Giza or the Empire State building… the possibilities are endless!


Join your friends on a trek throughout the Metaverse or conquer Godzilla on your weekly Friday get-together.

Or, go on an “online” date in virtual Paris or enjoy the canals of Venice. In other words, socializing, no matter the physical distance, has never been so entertaining!


Create your own world full of licorice forests and chocolate swamps. Or, set up your virtual shop and sell your products in exchange for cryptocurrency.

If you’re an artist, then take advantage of this new opportunity to create art that is interactive, immersive, and digital!

All in all, the Metaverse is a world where just about anything is possible. Boring activities like work meetings and educational classes can now be way more interesting with the help of a little Metaverse magic!
