    This week, Spencer spoke at the WSJ Tech Live conference (via The Verge) and discussed Facebook’s metaverse.

Interestingly, Snap CEO Evan Spiegel compared the experience to living inside a computer, noting that it is the last thing he wants to do after work. Similarly, Apple SVP Greg Joswiak described the experience as something he would never use.

    It is likely that whenever you have heard anything about Facebook’s metaverse and Horizon Worlds game, it has been negative. The fact that Facebook’s metaverse even exists at this point is a minor miracle, whether it is launching the game in Spain without the ability to play it in Spanish, Zuckerberg’s in-game likeness being memed to the max, or Meta employees admitting they do not even play it.
