Although the programming for virtual reality systems has been around since the 1970s, only in recent years has the excitement and popularity of the technology picked up speed. It has become so prominent that only two years ago, Facebook bought out one of the major virtual reality system frontrunners in order to develop it further.

On Day 2 of Facebook's 2016 F8 conference, they revealed something no one has ever seen before: the virtual reality selfie. Internet marketing agency fishbat has the scoop on what this is and what it may mean for the future of both social media and virtual reality users.

According to those who had a firsthand look at this technology, the virtual reality selfie is achieved by simply pulling out a handy virtual selfie stick and snapping a picture. Once the picture has been taken, a virtual reality "mailbox" appears that looks unsurprisingly similar to the official Facebook logo. Drag and drop the selfie into the mailbox, and presto! The selfie is uploaded straight to your Facebook page. Although the launched version does not currently include actual faces in the image, it is stated that the future of this technology aims to incorporate this feature.

Researchers say that the advancement of this technology will enable us to share our big moments within the virtual world with others on our social media pages. Can't afford to vacation in Europe? With virtual reality, you'll be able see the sights without ever leaving home. Thanks to Facebook, now we can share our virtual vacation memories with our friends and family just as we do with "real" ones.
