Meta wants to track people's facial expressions in metaverse

• New York Post

Meta Platforms Inc. wants to monitor people's facial expressions, eye movements, and body poses as well as create "virtual stores" that sell ad-sponsored digital goods in an effort to monetize the metaverse, dozens of recently filed patents suggest.

The company that began as Facebook and which has recently rebranded itself as Meta filed hundreds of patents recently with the US Patent and Trademark Office. These filings shed light on the company's plans for the internet's new frontier.

The patents, which were first reported by the Financial Times, indicate that Meta wants to use biometric data in order to create a more realistic digital avatar using virtual reality or augmented reality.
