Analysts are stunned to hear Facebook’s recent acquisition plan. Seems a bit odd to know in the first hand that Facebook is going to acquire a developer of virtual reality technology – Oculus Rift. The question that strikes first is – how a social media company can possibly be benefitted from this new acquisition? Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has confirmed the $2 billion acquisition agreement that soon can be expected to alter social media site user’s experience. Zuckerberg doesn’t reveal anything clearly about that though.
Oculus Rift builds a headset. When users put it on, they enter an unexplainable computer generated virtual world. Users often describe it as a real life experience where they feel like they’re really present in the new environment and can sense the presence of others like them.
