When we think of the term “social,” a specific image comes to mind: having conversations, being part of a group, sitting with friends, meeting people for the first time. But what if we could redefine what “social” means? What if we could fundamentally change what it is and how we use it with new technology?
Those are some of the questions virtual reality developers and innovators are asking as they continue to refine the technology, expanding on the different ways it can be harnessed to provide people with new means of communication and interaction with others. Romance and the way people meet and date one another could eventually get a major overhaul too. In fact, eHarmony predicts by the year 2040, VR will become a norm in online dating practices.
