facebook will start ads quest
- Facebook recently announced plans to show adverts in its VR headsets
- Facebook has two companies: a social network and an ad platform
- Is Facebook's desire to own VR purely about money or is there another reason?
Part One: Facebook's Users
- Advertisers try to minimize uncertainty for the brands they're trying to sell
- Adverts are charged by the number of impressions they get, but impressions are not always accurate
- Facebook wants a guarantee that its ads will be successful
Part Two: Surveillance Capitalism
- Capitalism evolves by finding ways to drag things outside of the market into the market sphere
- Surveillance capitalism takes private human experience and calls it behavioral data
- New markets are created based on selling the computational inferences and predictive analyses from behavioral data
Part Three: Our Data
- Biometric data doesn't change, unlike other data Facebook collects
- Facebook is moving heavily into collecting biometric data
- Body language is 93% of communication, and Facebook can now read and predict it
Part Four: Facebook and VR
- Facebook bought Oculus to own 53% of the VR market
- Facebook requires users to log in using their Facebook ID in VR headsets
- Facebook is investing in a brand new virtual digital world
Part Five: The Idea of Free Will
- Studies have shown that the brain can enact decisions up to seven seconds before we become consciously aware of making that choice
- Lack of free will can be interpreted as a fascinating quirk of life or something far more sinister
- By owning the digital world, Facebook decides what users see and when they see it
- Facebook's desire to own VR is not just about money, but also about owning and controlling the digital world
- Users need to be aware of the amount of data Facebook is collecting and how it is being used
Oculus Quest 2 In VR Facebook Ads Are Coming
Virtual Reality Advertisements: A New Reality for VR Users
Advertisements in virtual reality (VR) are becoming a reality, according to a new update by Oculus. What does this mean for VR users? Will it be intrusive? Let's talk about it today on BMF.
- VR advertisements are not new; we see them everywhere in mobile apps, websites, YouTube videos, and Google search results.
- Blaston will be the first game to feature ads inside of the actual VR game, and it seems to be local advertisements.
- Interactive ads may be immersion-breaking if accidentally clicked during gameplay.
- Developers will be able to earn revenue from these advertisements, but it needs to be tastefully done to avoid damaging the VR experience.
- Ads need to fit into the world that we're in and not remind us of the outside world.
- Developers should have the ability to stop ads from being there in the first place for certain types of experiences.
- Feedback on this issue is split, with some people okay with ads as long as they're not intrusive, while others don't want any ads in VR.
Virtual reality advertisements are here, and it's up to developers to implement them tastefully. Ads need to fit into the VR world and not be intrusive, or they risk damaging the VR experience. While some users are okay with ads, others don't want any at all. It remains to be seen how this will play out in the VR world, but developers need to be careful not to ruin the immersive experience that VR users crave.

F**k no! Facebook launch Ads in VR for Oculus META Quest Users!
Hey guys, welcome to VR Essentials! In this episode, we're talking about the recent news of Facebook experimenting with advertisements inside of the Oculus Quest. This is a big deal for several reasons, so let's dive in:
- This is the first episode of raw, uncut, unedited video for our channel.
- We're discussing the implications of Facebook's experimentation with ads in the Oculus Quest.
Why is this a big deal?
- Facebook is being taken to court by over 20 governments worldwide for antitrust.
- Antitrust means that Facebook takes your data to influence your buying habits and lifestyle.
- Advertisers, including governments, can use this data to influence who you vote for, what you like, what you buy, and more.
- Facebook can pull over 2 million data points from you and those around you every 20 minutes while in VR.
- This data includes your friends, loved ones, and anyone else nearby.
- Facebook's strategy and business plan is very different from other VR brands, and they're not in VR to make you feel good; they're there to take your data and influence your behavior.
What does this mean for Oculus Quest users?
- Facebook will blast ads into your Oculus Quest, potentially changing your buying habits even further.
- It's annoying to see ads in the first place, especially while playing a game in VR.
- Facebook is hiding behind the Oculus name, but Oculus is owned and run by Facebook.
- You should either wait to buy a Quest or sell your current one, as Facebook is not trustworthy.
- Be aware of what's happening with Facebook and VR.
- A Facebook feed will likely be integrated into the Oculus Quest in the future.
- Don't trust Facebook's intentions with VR or your data.
- Thanks for your support, and we'll see you in the next unedited, raw, first-cut video.

Why Starting an Online Business or Social Media Marketing Isn't as Easy as Some Make it Seem
There are many people who have created videos on how to start an online business or how to do social media marketing that have set unrealistic expectations. They have made it seem like Facebook advertising and Instagram advertising is easy and anyone can set up a campaign that will succeed from day one if you just follow their steps. This can set people up for failure when they first start running Facebook ads and Instagram ads.
The Danger of Believing It's Easy:
When people take the advice of these videos and create their first ad campaign, and it doesn't succeed from the start (which is highly likely), they assume they've been lied to. Instead of thinking they've been lied to about how easy it is to get results, they think they've been lied to across the board and that the whole platform is a waste of time.
The Reality of Facebook and Instagram Advertising:
The reality is that the meta ads platform does work. There are millions of Facebook and Instagram advertisers, and many businesses have been created off the back of successful Facebook and Instagram advertising. However, it's not easy and it's not a guaranteed success. Facebook advertising is a skill, and in order to succeed at anything that is skill-based, you have to be good enough to get results.
An advertising platform like meta works by competing against other advertisers for people's eyeballs. The cost of Facebook and Instagram ads rises to the point at which the best can succeed, and the ones that aren't very good at running ad campaigns can't. Any form of marketing that has a large potential upside is going to be highly competitive, and you're going to have to compete against those who have been doing it for years and are obsessed with getting better results.
The solution to this problem is to choose the competition that you enter. Start with a local competition where the level of competitor is not too high, and then move up in steps. Commit to running Facebook ads for 12 months, and pick a market or niche that is small enough that you can easily become the very best in that market.
Starting an online business or social media marketing isn't as easy as some make it seem. Facebook and Instagram advertising are skills that require dedication and practice to master. However, with the right approach and mindset, anyone can succeed. Choose your competition wisely, commit to the long-term, and focus on becoming the best in your niche.
Ads In-Game On Oculus Quest, Facebook Smartwatch, Hidden Oculus Quest Pincode & More!
Facebook's Upcoming Smartwatch Raises Privacy Concerns
Facebook is set to launch its first smartwatch next summer, featuring a display with two cameras and a detachable wristband for taking pictures and videos. However, concerns have arisen over privacy, given Facebook's reputation for surveillance. The smartwatch will also connect to cellular mobile data and have an e-SIM for 24/7 surveillance.
Passcode Unlock for Oculus Quest
There is a hidden passcode unlock for the Oculus Quest, which fits the theme of the device and looks like it was built to be there. The app only allows for an unlock pattern, and it seems that once set, the pattern translates to a pin number. This added privacy feature may be appealing to users who want to prevent others from accessing their Oculus Quest.
Facebook to Test Ads in Oculus Quest Apps
Facebook plans to test ads in its Oculus Quest virtual reality system in the coming weeks, with ads appearing in Resolution Games titles and two other unnamed apps. The company aims to create a self-sustaining platform for VR development, with app sales and targeted ads generating revenue. While targeted ads can be annoying, seamless integration into VR games and experiences could make them less intrusive.
Facebook's foray into the smartwatch market raises privacy concerns, given its history of surveillance. The hidden passcode unlock for the Oculus Quest may be useful for users who want added privacy. Ads in the Oculus Quest, while potentially annoying, could generate revenue for VR development if integrated seamlessly into games and experiences.
