Well, Facebook’s metaverse is off to a depressing start.
Meta — aka the artist formerly known as Facebook — announced a slate of big name virtual reality concerts set to take place entirely in in its Horizon Venues metaverse last month. The star-studded lineup included rapper Young Thug on December 26, DJ David Guetta on December 31, and finally EDM duo The Chainsmokers for a New Years’ Eve concert to ring in 2022.
The only problem? Not many people noticed — and those who did didn’t seem to really care.
