Facebook to hire 10,000 employees to build "metaverse"

Facebook plans to hire 10,000 employees in the European Union over the next five years to help build metaverse, an online world where everyone communicates in a virtual space.

That would be a significant step for Facebook, as Mark Zuckerberg has touted in recent months.

In September, Facebook allocated 50 million US dollars for metaverse.

Previously, Facebook also launched a remote work app trial virtual-reality (VR), where Oculus Quest 2 headset users can meet an avatar version of themselves.

Facebook also said in July that it was creating a product team to work on metaverse which will become part of Facebook Reality Labs.

“This investment is a vote of confidence in the strength of the European technology industry and its potential. Europe is very important to Facebook,” the company said.
