After the Apple and Google “taxes” on their respective online stores (App Store and Play Store), the time has come for the “Facebook tax” in the metaverse. The Menlo Park group – which recently renamed itself Meta to mark its new strategic milestone – has lifted the veil on new features introduced within its virtual world, Horizon Worlds, in which everyone will be able to lead a parallel life there via an avatar.

On Monday, the giant announced that it would start testing the sale of virtual objects designed by a handful of creators. In the process, the group led by Mark Zuckerberg clarified its pricing policy. He intends to take 30% of all sales made via the marketplace, the Meta Quest Store, of his homemade virtual reality headset allowing access to his metaverse under construction which is open in the United States and Canada for the time.
