Social media is one of the most important inventions of the digital age. It allowed us to communicate and connect with the world in a way that has never been possible in human history. In addition, it offers us the ability to connect with the world and find like-minded individuals who share the same ideas and beliefs.
However, social media is not without limits. One of the most important concerns the way information is presented and conveyed. Social media platforms are virtually all two-dimensional, which means that all data is displayed in a two-dimensional format (i.e. on a screen). This means that people can only connect via text, images, sound and video. While this is certainly still good, there’s no denying it leaves us wanting more.
We live in a three-dimensional reality, which means we experience the world in a much richer way than today’s social media can show. Many moments of human existence are essential because they happen on a three-dimensional plane, where people share space. We are social creatures and the best way to socialize is through closeness and physicality. Unfortunately, most social media platforms cannot host this.
Broadening the boundaries
That said, developments in VR, AR and even blockchain have prompted scientists and developers to reexamine our social media landscape and create alternative platforms that help satiate our genuine desire for socialization and connectivity. As a result, immersive and digital spaces are built that allow people to connect with the world from their computer while also interacting on a three-dimensional plane.
One project at the forefront of this is MT Tower. This social media platform doubles as a fully functional metaverse. This lifestyle and gaming environment is pushing the boundaries of space by allowing people to create genuinely intimate online connections. All over the world, there is an unspoken acknowledgment that creating bonds with simple words and images is not enough to satisfy us. But until recently, there were no digital alternatives.
The blockages triggered by the COVID pandemic have taught us that humans crave three-dimensional contact, making traditional social media ineffective and no longer fit for purpose. This is why metaverse environments like MT Tower are more critical than ever. Writing texts and sending pictures may have been enough to feel socially included before the pandemic. However, nowadays, we have realized how lonely an experience can be. Websites are no longer enough; we need virtual spaces.
A truly engaging future
MT Tower is building an intimate, all-encompassing and emotional environment. Create a virtual place where people can get together, discuss ideas, create memories and (most importantly) share space. It favors immersion more than anything else, as the project understands that humans are three-dimensional beings who need three-dimensional tools.
This is a critical time for the social media landscape, as it is the industry’s first significant evolution since its inception. The shift from 2 to 3 dimensions will be a welcome change for consumers and the general public, as there is a subtle recognition among internet users that words, images and videos are too limited to capture the beauty of the human experience.
