Mark Zuckerberg has acknowledged that a selfie he took in front of a digital version of the Eiffel Tower and La Sagrada Familia was a little too “basic.”
The screenshot that Zuckerberg shared to celebrate the opening of Horizon Worlds in France and Spain was widely criticized online.
The centerpiece of Meta’s developing “metaverse,” an online space where we can all socialize, work, and play, is Horizon Worlds.
Unfortunately, as one Twitter commenter noted, Zuck’s selfie’s graphics are comparable to those of the Teletubbies video game for the first PlayStation.
People were thrilled to start making fun of the shot and mocking it as well.
The CEO of Meta appears to have clarified that things aren’t quite that bad in response to the reaction to his image.
Horizon and avatar graphics will soon be receiving significant improvements. He added a far more realistic avatar to his Instagram post and stated, “I’ll share more at Connect.
‘Also, I realize the picture I posted earlier this week was quite simple; it was snapped in a hurry to mark a launch. Even on headsets, Horizon’s graphics are significantly more advanced, and the game is developing swiftly.
It seems that even a tech guru who is worth $62 billion occasionally posts a bad selfie after getting a little over away.
Mark, we’ve all been there.
