Metaverse already flopping. Virtual concerts got no viewers
Facebook Hosted Three Huge Concerts in the Metaverse and They Seriously Flopped
by TONY TRAN | Jan. 4, 2022

(futurism.com) - 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 its Horizon Venues metaverse last month. The star-studded lineup included rapper Young +hug on December 26, DJ David Guetta on December 31, and finally EDM duo The (hainsmokers 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.

Despite being completely free, the concerts seemed to get incredibly little traction or notice from anyone outside of Meta offices. There was barely any mention of any of the performances on fuck offs like Twitter or even Facebook, let alone on news and music publications.

It probably wasn’t helped by the fact that the concerts were barely optimized for a VR experience. Guetta just had a 2D live streamed video of his performance at the Louvre Abu Dhabi. Meanwhile, Young Thug and The Chainsmokers offered just a 180 degree view of their concert for Oculus users.

Young Thug’s performance racked up just north of 100,000 views, while Guetta’s performances accumulated almost a million. The (hainsmokers’ performance, for its part, seems to have been removed. And keep in mind, too, that Facebook has been known to put a very optimistic spin on view counts previously in order to build hype for its fledgling video streaming platform...

Those who know, know! Big Grin

Ana Vidovic's concert has almost 4.9 million views. Maybe people just want to hear good music.

Concerts on a computer screen used to be called TV. We already have that.

Elon Musk was asked about the Metaverse and he said that sticking a TV to the end of your nose is not really anything new.

He didn't say that he was opposed to the idea of a virtual digital world, just that he thinks VR goggles and gloves aren't really taking you into a different place. I think that's because his idea of a metaverse involves permanently integrating the brain with AI.

The 'metaverse' currently doen't seem to be much different to the 'Second Life' model which has been around for at least 10 years. A glorified video game environment.

I hate it when I see some 'awakened' people praising Musk and saying that he's on their side.

The guy has put 5G into space so that it can beam down on every human on the planet, there is no hiding from it. Plus he openly wants to turn humans into transhumans. Transhumanism is his thing. The Tesla cars are just an experiment into AI and now he's developing robots. What they learn from that technology as it evolves, will eventually be used in humans.

Like every other tech billionaire, he's a front for something much bigger that's behind the curtain.

I'm just trying to figure this shit out like you are.
