Virtual Facebook? What are we turning into?

What is the Oculus Rift? Thanks to Facebook millions of people are at least somewhat familiar with the Virtual Reality gizmo. What many want to know is what is their plan with this technology? With third-party concept, users browse an e-tailer using the Rift. After a few moments of browsing Facebook an individual clicks on a product advertised in the sidebar. He’s prompted to put on Oculus, at which point the user is immersed into a virtual Facebook marketplace, where he picks a designer bag off the shelf and turns it about as if he’s actually holding it. Combined with technology like the Connect the PC can recognize hand movements and the software responding accordingly. It’s of course just one company’s idea. My opinion… Another social networking society fail. Continued barrios to real human interaction only breaks down the fundamental requirements for a healthy society.
