The Power of
Compared to 5 years ago, AR has become ubiquitous, becoming the technology that has rapidly been introduced in software and then integrated in hardware for every modern phone, and many other modern hardware. As social media platforms adopt AR and XR methods as a way to increase user engagement, brand strategy to stay ahead of the curve with these new technologies needs to change with the times.
Changing The Fabric of Virtual Reality
Virtual Reality is fast becoming one of the primary methods by which we view the world. With rapidly increasing abilities, games and other platforms are moving towards a world where every brand will need to pay attention to these new platforms and forms of media transfer.

As the ubiquity of VR experiences continues to take over the world, it remains to be seen how VR will solidify as a technology in time.
