According to experts, the reason why people focus on online dating is because natural dating is difficult. Online dating has now moved to the next medium, Metaverse! Metaverse is one of the most popular online apps today.
This virtual world, which first appeared on an intellectual basis in Neal Stephenson's science fiction novel Snow Crash [Parasite] published in 1992, met with the Internet users of modern times with Metaverse, which was brought to life by Facebook in the past years.
NEW CENTER OF FLIRTATION: PLANET THETA
Developed by Fireflare Games, Planet Theta is the first dating app to be published on the Metaverse platform. Aaron Kizer, chief operating officer of FireFlare Games, describes it this way: “With the unique ability to connect, you can really get to know the people on Planet Theta. With an app on your phone, you can update your avatar and meet new people…”
Paul Brunson, one of the world's most famous matchmakers, also touches on the risk-taking part of virtual reality. According to Brunson, “There is a significant increase in risk taking, not to mention dangerous risks, but you can do things in the Planet Theta Metaverse that you can't do in real life, and that's a good thing.”
According to the Digital Anti-Hate Center, although there is no risk of physical attacks on Metaverse, its users have been found to be abused every seven minutes. This includes bullying, racism and threats of violence, it said.
On the other hand, Nina Jane Patel, who lives in London, the capital of England, claimed that her avatar was harassed on Facebook's virtual platform Horizon in the past weeks. “Three male avatars came towards me and inappropriately touched my avatar within 60 seconds of entering the platform,” Patel said. They were taking screenshots when they touched the top and bottom of my avatar's body. Abusers said things like 'Don't pretend you don't like it,'" she said.
