This creepy weirdo who thinks he’s liked and respected being so disconnected from reality he will eventually be metas downfall.

From the article: From the article: This week, Meta announced new ways it’s allowing creators to monetize and earn money from the “metaverse.” One way it’s enabling that is through letting creators sell NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, through its Horizon Worlds platform. In the post, Meta declined to specify how much of a cut it would take for those purchases, but a company spokesperson told CNBC it would be 47.5% commission, inclusive of a 30% hardware fee and a 17.5% platform charge: A Meta spokesperson confirmed to CNBC Wednesday that Meta will take an overall cut of up to 47.5% on each transaction. That includes a “hardware platform fee” of 30% for sales made through the Meta Quest Store, where it sells apps and games for its virtual reality headsets. On top of that, Horizon Worlds, will charge a 17.5% fee.

Meta’s vice president of Horizons, Vivek Sharma, told The Verge that the nearly 50% commission is “a pretty competitive rate in the market,” adding “we believe in the other platforms being able to have their share.”

Ironically, Meta itself, including company CEO Mark Zuckerberg, has been vocal about Apple’s 15% to 30% cut from the ‌App Store‌. In June, Zuckerberg wrote on Facebook that Meta would be keeping paid online events, subscriptions, badges, and other products free for creators until 2023, and after that, Meta would announce a commission that is “less than the 30% that Apple and others take.”

Start high and then, graciously, offer to backtrack and ‘only’ charge 30% fee after the backlash.

See how generous and caring we are!

One more reason among many that I don’t want to have ANYTHING more to do with Meta, and would never consider using their ‘metaverse composed of pure evil’.

“So Mark, what’s your revolutionary idea?”

“Second Life, but worse”.

“For users?”


Meanwhile SecondLife is still out here kicking after damn near 20 years. Zuck might want to copy their homework a little bit.

So no developers will make content. Cool plan. Welp back to Steam VR where I never left in the first place.

is Metaverse Second Life with VR headsets?

I honestly don’t know what metaverse is, but I feel like that’s it and I’m wondering why anyone would wanna?

This will get lost here but the meta verse isn’t for you and me, it’s being marketed towards children.

This whole meta verse thing will go over every single one of you people saying “I don’t care about the metaverse, who even buys into this crap?”

Highly impressionable young people. They have ads in strategic places and once a few top child streamers (I don’t know any but there are a ton of streamers that have their audience as young/middle aged (lol) children.

So, rather than gawking, use thy brain and realize that this will affect you more than you realize and maybe you have no interest in the metaverse, but children who grow up will.

This Metaverse thing is so DOA that it hurts watch.

What does it do better than other solutions? Hell, what is it even supposed to do?

i will not use metaverse. im barely hanging on to facebook,

last year i gave up all social media for a solid few months. i also gave up my smart phone for a non smart flip phone.

social media is the dumbest thing to exist and its ruining society. i really really hate social media and miss the days from before myspace and facebook.

theres not a snowballs chance in hell that i will ever use metaverse.

I like how everytime the Metaverse is reported on it’s always about how it’s going to be monetised but never talks about how its going to be compelling or even what it is going to entail or why people will be interested in taking part in it.
