Metaverse News

On Thursday, 28/10/21, or if you are in the USA 10/28/21 Mark Zuckerberg CEO of Facebook announced he will officially became the CEO and chairman of Meta, the new parent company name for Facebook.

The rebrand is to make the brand futuristic it is about solidifying the social media giant as being about the metaverse, which Zuckerberg sees as the future of the internet. Zuckerberg is staying in control of everything.

The definition of ‘Metaverse’ has a rather broad meaning: it doesn’t necessarily exist, it is speculative with the hopes that developers and coders will in the future turn this concept into a reality. Metaverse is a vision for the future iteration of the Internet, made up of persistent, shared, 3D virtual spaces linked into a perceived virtual universe. The metaverse in a broader sense may not only refer to virtual worlds but the Internet as a whole, including the entire spectrum of augmented reality.

We are spiritual beings in physical bodies, imagine if technology could make us immortal. Imagine teleporting to the other side of the world using augmented reality and holograms. Imagine educating surgeons to perform operations or hold conferences in virtual reality boardrooms. Imagine what this would do for our planet. This concept would help the environment cut down on emissions and help people with disabilities to venture into the yonder where previously it was not possible.

Matthew Ball, author of the extensive Metaverse Primer wrote:

“The Metaverse is an expansive network of persistent, real-time rendered 3D worlds and simulations that support continuity of identity, objects, history, payments, and entitlements, and can be experienced synchronously by an effectively unlimited number of users, each with an individual sense of presence.”


“Project Cambria” codenamed, is a virtual reality device and will probably be quite an expensive one, it is the headset for the future. Mark Zuckerberg believes that a billion people will be connected to the metaverse within the next decade. The headset won’t be a replacement for the Oculus Quest.

Metaverse “improved social presence” isn’t actually technology as such it is a futuristic concept that is being evolved by developers and coders with the vision technologies that will allow people to live in a virtual world. “Facebook”, eg, the new brand name “Meta” uses this phrase to describe the value of interactions on Instagram and Facebook the platform.

Last week the company announced plans to hire 10,000 people across the EU to help bring this concept to fruition.

The metaverse is a concept coined in the 1992 sci-fi novel Snow Crash to describe a kind of three-dimensional virtual reality version of the internet where people are present as avatars and move through a digital representation of a physical world.

However, holograms are nothing new, in fact, a city in Saudia Arabia “NEOM” is dubbed as the futuristic city. Neom a cross-border city in the Tabuk Province of northwestern Saudi Arabia is incorporating smart city technologies and also function as a tourist destination created the vision of a Prince’s $500 Billion Desert Dream: Flying Cars, Robot Dinosaurs, and a Giant Artificial Moon. The site is located in the north of the Red Sea, east of Egypt across the Strait of Tiran, and south of Israel and Jordan.

Neom City (The Line).

Neom City (The Line) Domain Names.

For those that do not know about Neom City, it is a Futuristic City that is being built in Saudia Arabia. The Crown Prince Of Saudia Arabia has started construction to build a zero-carbon empire at NEOM, the first major project for the $500 billion flagship business zone aimed at diversifying the economy of the world’s largest oil exporter.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman the future King of Saudia Arabia is only 34 years old, he controls part of the royal family’s vast wealth, which is estimated at up to $1.4 trillion and includes Saudi Aramco, the most valuable company in the world. The heir will ascend to the throne after the death of his father, 84-year-old King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

The Crown Prince was quoted in saying in a rare televised appearance that the city, known as “The Line”, would extend over 170 km (105 miles) and be able to house a million residents in “carbon-positive urban developments powered by 100% clean energy”. “The backbone of investment in ‘The Line’ will come from the $500 billion support to NEOM by the Saudi government, PIF and local and global investors over 10 years,”.

We have over 30 years experience in the marketing industry and have a very large network of connections on LinkedIn.

The reason for this post is a domain investor brought to my attention the following information via email:

Obviously I have redacted the senders email for privacy reasons.

The questionable link is as follows: it actually does point to a gaming site that looks like a five year old has designed, (apologies in advance to the owner of the site but it looks unprofessional).

Why is Neom pointing to this site anyway if Neom does not own it and clearly have not developed it?

Vistors going to this site will also be confused and will loose trust and damage reputation in what NEOM Stands for.

Due to GDPR it is difficult to find the real owner of this site if their registration details are hidden in whois data privacy settings.

It does not look good for the (The Crown Prince) when he starts a costly project but his marketing people fail to notice the embarrassing error or give good SEO advice.

Perhaps it was an oversight, however I wrote about hyphen domain names being unprofessional the other day relating to one the domain names that NEOM are promoting when they could have easily acquired the non-hyphen version that clearly points to a landing page stating the domain name is for sale

The hyphen domain article can be read here:

Again I do not have this particular domain on my books but I can find out who the owner is by simply doing some digging around. I am connected with most Neom Domain Investors so it should not be very hard to find out.

All the NEOM related domain names that I am managing for my clients can be found here:

What is not available can be acquired, just send me a message. Also if there is particular domain that you need we can help to source it.

I will be contacting the NEOM Marketing Company for comment and will update in due course.
