Facebook plans to hire 10,000 people in the European Union over the next five years, the social media giant said on Monday, to help build the so-called metaverse – a nascent online world where people exist and communicate in shared virtual spaces.

It would be a big step for the company to take towards the concept, something top boss Mark Zuckerberg has been touting in recent months.

In September, Facebook pledged US $ 50 million to build the metaverse, where companies like Roblox Corp and “Fortnite” maker Epic Games gained a foothold.

The company previously launched a test of a new virtual reality remote working app where users of the company’s Oculus Quest 2 headsets can hold meetings as avatar versions of themselves.

Facebook also announced in July that it was creating a product team to work on the metaverse that would be part of Facebook Reality Labs, its augmented reality and virtual reality group.

“This investment (in new jobs) is a vote of confidence in the strength of the European tech industry and the potential of European tech talent,” the company said.

“Europe is extremely important to Facebook. ”
