    Meta tells story of East African cyclists to promote metaverse

    Facebook’s parent company Meta has released a campaign that shines a light on cyclists and promotes its move into immersive experiences.

    It’s the second ad from Meta that specifically highlights the organization’s metaverse push, which it says has the ‘potential to break down barriers universally’.

    In ‘Amani’, viewers see 12 young African cyclists who dream about one day competing in the Tour de France. Throughout the film, each of the athletes uses tech to enhance their journey and connect with one another.
