Mark Zuckerberg Continues To Be Optimistic About The Metaverse
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg remains hopeful about the company’s Metaverse plans despite the disappointments it brings to the company.
“I think things look very different on a ten-year time horizon than the zone that we’re in for the next few years… I’m still completely optimistic about all the things that we’ve been optimistic about.”
He noted that part of carrying things through in the long run was overcoming misgivings about its aspirations.
Mark Zuckerberg’s company has poured billions of dollars into its Reality Labs section, which is in charge of those V.R. and A.R. activities, and changed its name from Facebook to Meta in the last two years.
Nonetheless, he stated that Reality Labs’ spending accounts for barely 20% of the company’s investment portfolio.
Mark Zuckerberg admitted, as he did earlier this month when he addressed employees about companywide layoffs, that he missed the shifting economic downturns and that his big investments in the metaverse are now being followed by the difficult decision to downsize.
However, the Facebook boss affirmed that he was still undeterred or faltered by the wave of criticism from the public, firmly believing that no objection is often an unambitious idea.
“We’re not going to be here in the 2030s communicating and using computing devices that are exactly the same as what we have today, and someone has to build that and invest in it and believe in it.”
However, Mark Zuckerberg recognized that his ambitions had a cost. On November 9, Meta had to lay off 11,000 staff, and the CEO stated that the company had “planned out massive investments,” including hardware to support its metaverse.
