The Verge: Meta CTO thinks bad metaverse moderation could pose an ‘existential threat’

The Verge: Meta CTO thinks bad metaverse moderation could pose an ‘existential threat’. “Meta (formerly Facebook) CTO Andrew Bosworth warned employees that creating safe virtual reality experiences was a vital part of its business plan — but also potentially impossible at a large scale. In an internal memo seen by Financial Times, Bosworth apparently said he wanted Meta virtual worlds to have ‘almost Disney levels of safety,’ although spaces from third-party developers could have looser standards than directly Meta-built content. Harassment or other toxic behavior could pose an ‘existential threat’ to the company’s plans for an embodied future internet if it turned mainstream consumers off VR.”
