More convergence. Active Worlds and Facebook

In another demonstration of convergence taking place in the metaverse space, virtual world platform Active Worlds recently announced an integration tool with Facebook.

The ‘Active Worlds 3D Avatar and World Explorer’ allows developers to build virtual environment applications on the Facebook website (in the browser).

Commenting on the news, JP McCormick, Active Worlds Chairman said,

“Since our Active Worlds technology continues to be standards driven, we feel this release sets a new milestone on 3D Internet implementation. The push is on for interoperability and a set of standards which will drive Virtual World technology into the future. We believe that many of these already exist. By continuing to enhance our already standards driven application we greatly increase our value to e- commerce, education, entertainment, and social networking sites, as well as our core business with Fortune 500 companies.”
