"Zuckerberg said the next step for VR is social software. Facebook’s Oculus now lets people have “rooms” to hang out with their avatar friends, where they can watch movies, play games or talk.

“Virtual reality is the perfect platform to put people first, because of presence,” Zuckerberg said. “You feel like you’re really there, in another place, with people.”

Oculus has so far spent $250 million on developers of VR experiences, and plans to pledge $250 million more, Zuckerberg said. About $10 million will go to education experiences specifically."
