Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) Offers To Help Congress With Net-Neutrality Regulations
In an effort to seemingly combine a couple of the top tech trends of the year, Facebook will soon be allowing users of its Oculus Rift virtual reality system to live stream themselves inside VR to their Facebook friends and followers as avatars.
The Facebook Live functionality will be arriving on the Spaces app, which is still in beta. Users will be able to go live to all their friends and can position a virtual camera to capture their experience. A lot of things will look familiar to a traditional Live broadcast for the streamer, but things like physically reaching out and grabbing a comment to show those watching are things only possible in VR.
Mark Zuckerberg is offering to work with members of Congress on net neutrality regulations.
Amazon, Facebook, Google and Twitter are rallying in support of net neutrality protections.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey also tweeted a blog post about the issue.
