Mark Zuckerberg updates Metaverse graphics after his avatar was compared to the 2008 Nintendo game




Meta boss Mark Zuckerberg has changed and updated his new ‘metaverse’ avatar after the original version took heat from the internet due to poor graphics.

The reaction was spurred by the premiere of Meta’s new VR app called Horizon Worlds, which premiered in France and Spain this past week.

He shared his first avatar in front of an animated Eiffel Tower and was mocked by the internet, with many comparing it to the graphics of now-decade-old Nintendo games.

Zuckerberg has since shared an updated version, admitting that the Metaverse graphics shown were rudimentary.

One Twitter user put it succinctly: “He spent billions making the old Nintendo Wii graphics”[ads1];.

It wasn’t just random people on the internet, who New York Times Tech columnist Kevin Roose called the graphics “worse than a 2008 Wii game”.

Another author, Emily Gorcenski, wrote: ‘Come and work for Meta, where today’s most brilliant technologists have achieved 1995-level graphics.’

Many pointed out how “creepy” and “dead-eyed” the images were from the virtual reality app.

On Friday, Zuckerberg began the pivot, saying, “I know the photo I posted earlier this week was pretty basic — it was taken very quickly to celebrate a launch.”

He added that Horizon World’s graphics “are capable of much more” and are “improving very quickly.”

The app is the first step in Zuckerberg’s master plan and allows users in the US and Canada to gather with others, play games and build their own virtual worlds.

Now Meta is starting to lay off workers: Facebook lays off 60 contractors who were told via video conference that they were “randomly” chosen by an algorithm to be fired – just days after Apple got rid of recruitment staff

A group of about 60 contractors working with Facebook learned they were being laid off this week after they were “randomly” selected by an algorithm.

The layoffs are the latest example of Big Tech cutting back on spending and hiring, as Apple let go of about 100 recruiters just days ago.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has also recently said he will weed out underperforming employees with “aggressive performance reviews” as the company prepares for a deep financial downturn.

The contractors are hired through Accenture in the Austin office, a company that has a deal worth nearly half a billion dollars a year to staff the company with content moderation and business integrity workers.

The layoffs were announced during a video conference Tuesday, and they were not immediately offered new jobs or transfers by Accenture, according to Business Insider.

A Facebook spokesperson, when asked about the news by DailyMail.com, said: “Thank you for your inquiry, but we have no comment.”

The contractors were told they could “re-apply” for a new job vacancy in the next two weeks, but that their current work would be gone by September 2nd and would be paid through October 3rd.

Accenture’s representatives astonishingly told a worker who asked how the layoffs were decided that an algorithm picked people at random and gave no concrete justification for why the employees’ positions were cut.

It is not the first time employees have lost their jobs via algorithms. In August 2021, Xsolla – a company that provides payment processing for the gaming industry – laid off 150 people, an algorithm determined to be “disengaged and unproductive,” according to the game developer.

In June, Zuckerberg said the company would “turn up the heat” on performance management to weed out employees unable to meet more aggressive goals.

“Realistically, there are probably a bunch of people in the company who shouldn’t be here,” he said.

“Part of my hope by raising expectations and having more aggressive goals, and just turning up the heat a little bit, is that I think some of you might decide that this place isn’t for you, and self-selection is OK with me,” he said. .

In May, Meta said it would pause hiring, and at the Q&A session Zuckerberg said he would cut hiring plans for new engineers by 30 percent — instead of the original plan to hire 10,000, Meta would hire between 6,000 and 7,000.

Apple has laid off many of its contract recruiters after warning it would slow hiring and rein in spending, according to a new report.

Over the past week, Apple has let go of about 100 contractors responsible for evaluating and hiring new employees, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg on Monday.

Last month, Apple reportedly warned employees about plans to slow hiring and spending growth next year in some divisions.

In May, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced plans to cut 10 percent of the payroll, saying he had “a super bad feeling about the economy.”

Netflix, which has struggled with two straight quarters of net subscriber losses, cut its workforce by 150 in May and another 300 in June.

Google parent Alphabet also said last month that it would slow the pace of hiring for the rest of the year.

Amazon is reportedly thinning the ranks of its hourly employees due to attrition, and recently halted construction on six new office buildings in Bellevue and Nashville.
