Using a tested strategy, Facebook works to gain users and propel virtual reality

Speaking Sunday at a Samsung event in Barcelona before the start of Mobile World Congress, Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg called virtual reality "the next platform."

Zuckerberg said virtual reality is moving beyond gaming and into areas where friends can gather, where a child's first steps might be recorded in 360-degree VR, and eventually, to meetings in the enterprise.

Olds said it's hard to find a downside for Facebook to take on wireless service when it could help the company gain a larger user base and propel virtual reality.

"It's hard to see how it could hurt them, other than losing some money if it goes south," he added.
