No one is going to sign up for this. Maybe someone lonely, sad and wealthy but it's exploitative. The opposite of what the IG reports are revealing about the impact on our youth. Using the Spice Girls from circa 1998 isn't the move so it may self destruct before too much damage is done. Who approves this nonsense?

I was embarrassed by this announcement but I am counting on people I associate with not becoming aware of it.

This trainwreck is going to be a blast to watch. Does anyone have popcorn?

Investors who were kept in the dark about a cyber breach by the last CEO should now push out this tool, ASAP. He just made a bigger joke out of this company and should be dismissed for his stupidity.

I'd rather work for any of the Spice Girls than KW/SDB.

If that's the best Pearson has, they are in serious....serious trouble. That is one of the most tone-deaf announcements I've ever seen. We have COVID, rampant suicides, cops getting ki---d all over the place, ridiculous supply chain issues in our country and Pearson chooses now to make this venture public. Pearson has officially jumped the shark.

This is what happens when you hire a disney character. Drastic times call for drastic and foolish measures. My favorite disney character was goofy...Wait, hmmm.....
