Individuals young and old alike who have been dedicated to the internet world, by breaking away from face to face social communication, gradually go further and turn to the world of virtual reality (VR). With the development of technology, VR, which shows itself first in the movie and then in the game industry in the social life, has led the users to move themselves to the environments, shapes, etc. they have fully dreamed of. Anticipating that virtual reality will take our lives as a captive with the rapid development of technology and that sociality will be transferred to the virtual world completely, Ernest Cline expressed it in his science fiction book “Ready Player One” published in 2011 and, it was released as a movie in 2018 under the direction of Steven Spielberg. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg also created Facebook Horizon, a social virtual reality application inspired by the film, and released the trial version in early 2020. 55 students voluntarily participated in the study carried out in Aydın Adnan Menderes University Kuyucak Vocational School between 03.03.2020-13.03.2020. In the study, the opinions of the volunteer participants about the Facebook Horizon virtual reality application, their opinions about other social VR applications and how they can trust these applications were obtained through the semi-structured interview form. Descriptive analysis of the data obtained was performed and interpreted.
