Thread regarding Meta / Facebook layoffs

Zuck on Joe Rogan podcast

If Zuckerberg’s latest marketing efforts seem amusing and self-defeating, they also show just how badly the company has flubbed its pivot into the metaverse

Here are some details

Zuckerberg said that, personally, he doesn’t watch TV, except for UFC bouts, because he considers the medium to be overly “passive,” as compared with social media. “You’re just sitting around in this beta state, consuming stuff,” Zuckerberg said.

Then it gets more hilarious

Zuckerberg said that, personally, he doesn’t watch TV, except for UFC bouts, because he considers the medium to be overly “passive,” as compared with social media. “You’re just sitting around in this beta state, consuming stuff,” he said.
“You’ll be able to have this experience in the future, where you’re sitting in a meeting, and your wife texts you, and it pops up in the corner of your glasses,” Zuckerberg said. “You want to respond, but you don’t want to pull out your phone because that’s kind of rude.” Users of Meta’s augmented reality products, he continued, will be able to send messages using a “virtual hand” that they control with their mind to send text messages. “No one even knows you’re doing it, and you just, like, send a message.”
As a pitch, this doesn’t make much sense, not least because, as Rogan himself noted with some exasperation, Zuckerberg is proposing to take what’s possibly the worst thing about mobile phones—the extent to which they intrude on normal life—and magnify it. Moreover, suggesting that VR products are somehow “alpha” might grab the attention of Rogan’s audience, but it hardly seems like a good way to sell a product to a mass market. The non-Roganite community of humankind doesn’t care much, if ever, about the “alphaness” of a product. Moreover, Rogan viewers might be tempted to ask whether Mark Zuckerberg, tired hands and all, is really a reliable authority on masculinity. Is texting your spouse on the sly alpha behavior?

Serious question...how do Meta employees justify the outrageously evil and diabolical practices of the company that signs your check?

Are you just ignorant, purposefully looking the other way, or just following orders so you keep getting paid? You're literally the Ministry of Truth from 1984 at this point.

So sad what humans will do to each other for some sheckles
