I always figured once VR was done right it was be ridiculous to have it be specifically for gaming. I guess FB felt the same way and decided to become a part of it.
What I've learned reading this thread is that there seems to be people who wanted VR to be specifically for gaming. Somehow, that idea never even crossed my mind. What VR can do for things like immersion in game worlds is undoubtedly incredible to ponder, but it's also amazing to imagine what VR can do for things like social media and online education.
