Facebook is going to create a virtual world and call it Horizon. The developers of the social network told about this project at the conference Oculus Connect 6.

As the BBC reported, the new VR app will be just like a common social platform where people can spend time together and socialize in a virtual environment. Each user will have its own 3D avatar to surf the virtual cyberspace, which continually changes. You can use the VR app with a special Oculus headset.

The platform assumes the presence of specific "guides" that will introduce users to the virtual world and show how things arranged there. They will teach you how to build your own environment and give a step-by-step brief to create personal avatars. There will also be tools to regulate interaction with other users.

The application will be tested in early 2020.
