Is the ‘Metaverse’ the future of the internet? Or is it just a cynical attempt by Mark Zuckerberg to “rebrand” Facebook and deflect from a recent spate of scandals and negative publicity?

    EU Reform Proactive

    This ‘Sugar-Mountain’ spreads internet diabetes!

    It’s time to do something drastic against some of these intrusive & highly contagious internet lifestyles and all these overactive fingers. Both are becoming unresponsive to the human pituitary gland. Even Covid-19 is less harmful.

    Sorry, I have no time for Mr. Sugar Mountain- melt it!

    Full marks to Elon!
