Oculus is the leader in virtual reality (VR) technology with over 75,000 orders for development kits for the company’s VR headset, the Oculus Rift. Last week the VR company’s billion dollar acquisition with the social media company Facebook left fans feeling uneasy. Facebook is said to plan for the extension of Oculus into communications, media, entertainment and education. With the broad potential applications, VR is now a strong candidate to be the newest social and communication platform.

Now this sounds cool and all but this week fans back lashed against the new merger and death threats and other abuses flooded the Oculus VR officials. The announcement spread through the gaming sphere and tech industry with a mixture of shocked and angry emotions.
