The Moment Jokowi Meets Zuckerberg Discusses the Metaverse

 In 2016, President Joko Widodo met Mark Zuckerberg. Zuck told Jokowi that in a few years there would be a Metaverse.

Arriving at Facebook's headquarters on a visit in 2016, Jokowi was immediately warmly welcomed by Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and CEO of the social network that has more than one billion users worldwide.

Jokowi and first lady Iriana and their entourage walked leisurely accompanied by Zuck in the Facebook office area. Jokowi mentioned this meeting again. He claimed to have received whispers about Metaverse from the Facebook boss since 2016. "I remember in 2016 when I met Mark Zuckerberg in America, I was invited to play ping pong using Oculus, 'President Jokowi in 10-15 years will appear like we are playing ping-pong. '," he said today.

This is not the first time the two have met. The reason is, Jokowi had previously met with Zuckerberg last year when he visited Indonesia. At that time, President Jokowi even took Priscila Chan's husband to visit Tanah Abang Market.

Zuckerberg chatted casually with Jokowi. "Everyone can buy virtual land, build their own vital business, and there will also be virtual malls, virtual gyms, virtual offices, virtual tours.' At that time, I couldn't imagine what it would be like," said Jokowi regarding the discussion of this meeting with Zuck, at the opening of the Digital Generation Acceleration, quoted by the Ministry of SOE's YouTube, Wednesday (15/12/2021).

At that time, President Jokowi also took the time to meet with 17 Facebook employees from Indonesia.

Accompanied by First Lady Iriana, Jokowi greeted the 17 Indonesian Facebook employees one by one. Not to forget, the president asked how they were. "How are you doing here? How long have you worked here? Don't you feel at home here," Jokowi asked.

The president also took the time to take a group photo.

The president entered the inner office of Facebook.
