In a Facebook post, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said launching 'Avatars Store' on Facebook, Instagram and Messenger so that users can buy digital clothes to style their avatars.

"Digital goods will be an important way to express yourself in the metaverse and a big driver of the creative economy. I am excited to add more brands and bring this to virtual reality (VR) soon too," Zuckerberg added.
