What users should Facebook listen to for new features? Majority rules? Who defines the majority? People birching about change always seem more prevalent than those who just roll with it.

Also, the only damage I can see Facebook potentially doing is locking the software distribution channel for the Oculus into an Apple app-store like model. If this thing caught on, there'd be a Facebook app, social apps, ad-supported apps, in-app purchases, etc. regardless. I don't know exactly how those would fit into this VR interface, but you know someone would try.

You've got a 3 x 4 grid to work with. The old keypad on phones naturally fits that. What layout of keys would you propose?

If they can do this, though, why don't they just overlay a QWERTY keyboard in the air and just do one or two finger hunt-and-peck recognition? Or maybe even a Swype style in the air. Add in some error correction / auto-correct and I think it'd be a whole lot better than a keypad on my fingers.

Assuming you're the #13 AC there, what you wrote doesn't even come close to what's been described.

"They should come up with a hand held controller that lets you control it. The exact interface needs to be worked out but perhaps you can control it with your phone connected to it via bluetooth. You have a pointer/arrow that you see on the glass and you can hold the phone in your pocket and control it with your thumb."

There's no controller. Your hand just becomes a keypad to enter data.
