Miroku, I hope you're right, at least as far as what Facebook / Meta has planned.

I would really enjoy watching Facebook go out of business. They recently banned me from buying advertising and gave me no specific reason why they did so. So... yeah, let them crash and burn.

Agreed on the whole Metaverse thing. It just sounds depressing. Also I have read stuff about a woman in it being assaulted by a bunch of guys also in the Metaverse. I’m not sure if that was actually true or just someone trying to make a point but yeah.

Have a happy New Year!

The "metaverse" is to be avoided, in my opinion. Social media is insidious enough with the way it absorbs attention and forms addictive habits (checking notifications and validation-seeking behavior), not to mention its role in shaping public opinion.

A more immersive form of social media would be quite dangerous. If you aren't paying, you are the product. Even if you are paying, your information is being harvested for additional profit.

So... nobody heard of Replika, I take it. About the Metaverse, probably going to be a flop. I predict Meta's going to sink a lot of money into its development only to find out hardly anyone will use it. Most of my friends family and co-workers dropped FB years ago in favor of private chat apps or specifically work-related things like Slack / Zoom.
