The metaverse is a source of concern for a Facebook whistleblower.

  • Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen said she fears the impact of the metaverse that the social media giant has rebranded to focus on delivering, saying the futuristic virtual reality world would force people to give up more of their personal information, be addicting and give the embattled company another monopoly in the online world.
  • Haugen is a former product manager at Facebook turned whistleblower whose revelations about the company’s practices have drawn global attention.
  • Documents she has turned over to authorities and her testimony to lawmakers on both sides of the Atlantic have revealed deep-seated problems at the company and energized legislative and regulatory efforts around the world to crack down on big tech companies.
