"Some people dismiss the metaverse as a fad, but they are wrong. Meta (formerly Facebook) now requires all employee meetings in its metaverse conference rooms.

Steven Blutstein, head of performance creative for The Social Standard, writing this week on Retail Touchpoints in his op-ed, “Retail in the Metaverse.” Blutstein, a marketing strategist and content creator, has more than 10 years of experience directing brand growth for B2B, e-commerce and automotive brands.
