Meta is crashing because Apple fucked them

Meta is crashing because of C level hubris and the belief that they could be the central point of all social interaction online and in the metaverse. They've been making poor decisions internally for years and its catching up to them.

They’re crashing because they got fucked by Apple on targeted ads (their cash cow). They put themselves in a position to get fucked by Apple because so far they failed to become an OS/hardware company.

Why do you think they’re pushing for VR? To push the adoption of Oculus headsets. They failed with the Facebook Phone so now they’re thinking : whats the successor of smartphones ? VR headsets. It’s why Microsoft is betting on it as well

It’s a rational decision. Execution is another issue though

They stopped Facebook from tracking users on iPhones. Basically making their targeted ads on iPhones (most of their revenue) shitty. Apple is selling this as a privacy measure, but we all know they’re gonna start doing targeted ads themselves
