After making way into your heart, Facebook might soon be on its way deep into your mind. You heard me right. If Mark Zuckerberg is to be believed, we might soon be sending messages via ESP. ESP or Extrasensory perception is also called sixth sense. This includes reception of information not gained through the recognized physical senses but sensed with the mind.
This is what Zuckerberg now dreams of and he certainly dreams big. If telepathy is possible, communicating via Facebook will be something entirely different for us.
The 31-year-old Facebook chief executive told a public Q&A forum this week, “One day, I believe we’ll be able to send full, rich thoughts to each other directly using technology.” Wow, this is something that everyone will actually wait for.
It has acquired Oculus, a manufacturer of actual dreams or virtual reality.
It has been 10 years since Facebook has become an indispensable part of our daily lives. It has evolved to be more than just a social networking site. And this is because of the various features the site gives to its users.
Features like Facebook at Work where a stripped-back version is designed for internal staff use is fast picking up among users.
In 2014, Groups feature was released as a standalone app. For people who use Facebook Messenger app in the United States, an electronic payments feature is being worked upon.
Instant Articles is another feature that will witness Facebook host content from various news sites on the app and this is a major leap towards aggregating news from various sources available on the internet.
Facebook has come a long way with experimenting, success and failures but it seems that nothing can hold it back.
Along with internet.org, a project that plans to bring internet free to people, Zuckerberg has talked about artificial intelligence and virtual reality as key future themes for the company.
With more projects and features lined up, Facebook will certainly reach out to more and more people and this looks like a gambit, which people will welcome with open arms.
It is hard to say whether telepathy would work for Facebook or not but it surely has managed to enter almost all areas of our lives and plans to get deeper into our minds. For now, you can just sit back and see what this social networking giant is up to.
