Meta’s efforts to find the next big thing and the future of the Internet can only be described as a failure so far. The VR technology favored by Mark Zuckerberg despite massive criticism has not yet been able to really take off and has not been particularly well received by consumers. In fact, the headsets, which had been purchased at great expense, ended up gathering dust on desks unused after just a few weeks. Even Meta’s staff didn’t want to be in the virtual world their boss had dreamed of. When the hype about generative AI broke out, Mark Zuckerberg seemed to have completely lost his way in clinging to his virtual paradise.
