    Metaverse and the future of social connections

    Metaverse and the future of social connections

    There can be no doubt that the Metaverse is a game changer for social interaction. But how precisely is it changing the way we meet, communicate, present ourselves, understand ourselves and live our lives…? And will Mark Zuckerberg’s virtual microcosm also rewrite the rules of marketing, impact the economy, reshuffle social status cues and give scammers and creeps new hunting grounds? All that and more is up for discussion in this episode of the Social Media Sucks podcast where, with Chris in NYC, the minds of Kubbco meet up virtually for the first time.

    The Big Virtual Influencer Episode

    The Big Virtual Influencer Episode

    Who's your favourite virtual influencer?
    On this episode the minds of Kubbco explore what brands can gain from developing a virtual influencer – aka a CGI-based, fictional avatar whose uncanny resemblance to a real person enables the brand to tap into storytelling and a bunch of other cool ideas.
    But are virtual influencers really as novel as the name implies? Or was Kellogg's Tony the Tiger, or McDonald's Ronald McDonald, actually precursors to @lilmiquela and KFC's Colonel?
    Dive into this episode to find out why virtual influencers are a thing – and what kind of value they add to brands and consumers.
