Just when all of us thought metavers’s promising excitement will change the way we connect on the Internet, Mr. Zuckerberg’s ill-advised tweet made us amend our expectations and received extreme public criticism.

In mid August, Mark Zukerberg posted on Twitter that showed a below-par, cartoonish image of his metaverse-avatar that’s standing in a basic backdrop representing France and Spain.

A glimpse of Meta’s VR application (Horizon Worlds) tweeted by Mark Zukerberg just before its  launch in France and Spain, reflects the below par efforts of the company to meet the expectations of its consumers

Since then, Facebook head’s zealous plans for the metaverse have been roundly criticized and became skeptical to the investors. 

“It’s genuinely puzzling that Meta spent more than $10 billion on VR last year and the graphics in its flagship app still look worse than a 2008 Wii game,” tweeted tech columnist Kevin Roose.

After Facebook changed its name to Meta last year, the company has spent over $10 billion in its vision of people inhabiting a digital world, carrying out their daily life activities and possibly others that seem impossible in the real world. But the products delivered for consumers seem outdated at best and incomplete at worst.

Various factors contribute to Mr. Zuckerberg’s unrealistic and frustrating take on Metaverse, reports CNN Business. Basic graphics, legless avatars, and bulky headsets mars the joy of what Mr. Zukerberg visions as living in a fully immersive virtual world, outlined CNN’s analysis. 

For example, Horizon Worlds, the flagship application of Meta, features dead graphics and flying avatars with no legs; not to forget the bulky $400 Quest VR headset giving users a sense of dizziness from just a minuscule usage. 

Because so far there’s no sound solution to the problem of leg tracking in the VR tech-scape, and that processing of photorealistic graphics constrain the computational requirements, the idea of metaverse as delivered by Facebook’s owner, reflects a lack of coherent approach towards Meta’s vision.

Meanwhile, inside Meta, employees are frustrated from this lack of cohesive plan, calling the idea of an immersive VR Mr. Zukerberg’s whim, reports The New York Times.

It’s “the only thing Mark wants to talk about,” stated a former director-level employee on Business Insider.

Despite Mr. Zukerberg’s unrelenting enthusiasm towards making his metaverse dreams feasible, employees are stuck in the current stage with no idea as to how to make this happen.

People don’t really seem to know what to deliver or what to work on because there is still no coherent strategy.” a current employee cites in Business Insider.

A 60% loss in Meta’s stocks last year reflects the skepticism investors now have regarding Meta’s success in the near future. With such unsustainable revenue performance, an auspicious change in strategy is what people expect from Meta now.
