Facebook Into The Spiderverse

Facebook Enters the Spiderverse, Antioch Report

Get stories like this sent to you directly, once a week on Thursdays.

By this time next week, Facebook will change its name to keep in line with their branding identity and directional shift into the Spiderverse, um, I mean metaverse.

Facebook wants to be relevant in 10 years, so it’s evolving. If you’re not familiar with web evolution, metaverse virtual spaces, and other semantic web words, think of it like this:

  • PC Era, 1980 – 1990: Windows, email, early file systems, flippity floppy disc.
  • Web 1, 1990 – 2000: World Wide Web (www.), HTML, file servers.
  • Web 2, 2000 – 2007: social networking (Facebook), search engines (Google), websites for everybody, mobile first, cloud computing.
  • Web 3, now: Intelligent virtual agents (AI), decentralized data architecture and blockchain (Bitcoin), metaverse 3D spaces (Oculus, HTC)

Many consider Facebook’s brand identity shift to be a response to recent allegations at Capitol Hill, but it could also be their way of leaving the Web 2 space and entering the Web 3 space so they aren’t obsolete by 2030.

If every word above went over your head, know that most people currently under 10 years old will know Web 3 like the back of their hands by the time they’re 20. 🤯

Parents, start having convos with your children about tech. Pastors, start having convos with your church. A good starting place is reading The Tech-Wise Family.
