10 Golden Knowledge (GK) Containers on Metaverse


The main objective of this "genioux fact" is to discover 10 rare containers of golden knowledge (GK) in the Metaverse

  1. Facebook Has Probably Peaked. What Can Mark Zuckerberg Do Now?, Parmy Olson, February 3, 2022, Bloomberg.
    • The social network’s first ever drop in daily users is a landmark moment, and it is hard to see the company’s founder steering the company back to growth.
    • Facebook said its daily users fell to 1.929 billion in the fourth quarter from 1.93 billion. You can imagine that “2 billion daily users” was firmly in Zuckerberg’s mind as the next big target, but it is hard to see him reaching that now. With his long-term inability to build attractive new services in the face of growing competition, a new reality is sinking in: Facebook looks like a company in decline.
    • Over the years, that slice of revenue dwindled to almost nothing, as Facebook’s addiction to the advertising business grew. That has left Facebook — the least diversified Big Tech firm — vulnerable to any drop in users and their all-important engagement metrics with advertisers.
    • Zuckerberg cannot be moved. He holds a majority of Meta’s voting shares and oversees a largely pliant board; he expects to still be Meta’s chief executive officer in five years. That means investors shouldn’t expect an eventual turnaround like Microsoft Corp.’s, sparked by the replacement of Steve Ballmer by Satya Nadella in 2014.
  2. Facebook Feels $10 Billion Sting From Apple’s Privacy PushMeghan Bobrowsky, February 3, 2022, The Wall Street Journal, WSJ.
    • Meta COO Sheryl Sandberg says adjusting to the iPhone maker’s app-tracking changes will take time
    • Discussing Meta Platforms Inc.’s quarterly earnings and its outlook for the current year that shocked investors, Chief Financial Officer David Wehner on Wednesday said the company expects the Apple policy to cost it more than $10 billion in lost sales for 2022. That is equivalent to about 8% of its total revenue last year.
    • Apple introduced the changes last April, altering its iPhone software to require apps to ask users whether they want to be tracked.
    • Booming digital ad spending has been a boon for Mr. Zuckerberg’s company. Facebook, as the company was known before its renaming last year to Meta, enjoyed years of strong revenue driven in significant part by its ability to track the behavior of users of apps and websites and enable advertisers to deliver highly targeted ads based on that information. The Apple policy change disrupted that ability, with a large majority of users, according to some measurements, opting not to be tracked. Meta says that policy has made ad targeting more difficult and measuring the impact of placements harder.
    • Apple’s move has had reach beyond social-media companies.
    • Sheryl Sandberg, Meta’s chief operating officer, said on Wednesday’s earnings call that the company was working on ways to measure the impact of the ads it sells and to find ways to show relevant ads without collecting personalized data. “That’s going to take us time.”
  3. Microsoft’s Videogame Boss and the Long Battle to Reinvent the Company, Aaron Tilley, February 3, 2022, The Wall Street JournalWSJ.
    • The $75 billion bid to buy Activision Blizzard is the culmination of years of building by Phil Spencer, the company’s gaming chief
    • The $75 billion deal that Phil Spencer engineered for Activision Blizzard Inc. is the biggest bet yet that games can go from a side hustle to a core business at the world’s most valuable software company.
    • A Microsoft Corp. lifer and a lifelong gamer, Mr. Spencer has been the chief architect and evangelist for a bigger videogame strategy inside a company that revived its fortunes in recent years largely by focusing on business customers. 
    • If the Activision deal closes, Mr. Spencer’s group will control 30 studios, pushing the company closer to becoming the “Netflix for gaming.”
    • “Phil has been systematically putting the building blocks in place,” said S. Somasegar, a more than 25-year veteran of Microsoft who left in 2015. “He’s got enough now to take the next big step with Activision.”
  4. Facebook and Google’s Ad Addiction Can’t Last ForeverParmy Olson, February 3, 2022, Bloomberg.
    • Facebook’s first-ever drop in users is an ominous sign for a business that relies almost entirely on ads. Google should watch out too. 
    • Facebook’s announcement that user numbers had dropped for the first time laid bare a long-neglected vulnerability: Digital advertising accounts for 98% of Meta’s revenue, and it also accounts for 81% of Alphabet’s. Of the world’s five biggest tech companies, including Amazon Inc., Apple Inc. and Microsoft Corp., Facebook and Google are the least diversified. 
    • Though conventional wisdom says that conglomerates shouldn’t put all their eggs in one basket, it is hard to knock a business model that has been so successful. 
    • The difference now is that the world around Google and Facebook is changing in ways that look very different than the 2000s or even the 2010s, making their over-reliance on the ad business a potential problem down the line.
    • Microsoft has become a model for the diversified Big Tech conglomerate. The company moved into the cloud business under Satya Nadella in 2014, as it saw declines in PC shipments on the horizon. It now has 20% of the global cloud computing market, second after Amazon, and its share price has soared under his tenure. In addition to its huge software business, Microsoft has tentacles in gaming and social media, which made up 8% and 7% of sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2022, respectively.
  5. Microsoft's Nadella says Activision buy pushes it further into the metaverseSA Editor Chris Ciaccia, February 3, 2022, Seeking Alpha.
    • Microsoft's pending acquisition of Activision will help the company further expand into the metaverse, even if what the metaverse is has not been fully fleshed out yet, Chief Executive Satya Nadella said in an interview.
    • Speaking with the Financial Times in his first interview since the announcement, Nadella, 54, said that the metaverse is "essentially about creating games," one task that Microsoft has done for decades, going all the way back to "Flight Simulator."
    • Nadella expanded on the intersection between gaming and metaverse, noting that the demographic of those who play video games is getting younger every year and they have expectations about how to interact, with many wanting to use avatars, especially as they approach working age.
  6. Mark Zuckerberg’s Wealth Plunges by $31 Billion After Meta Shock, Scott Carpenter, February 2, 2022, Bloomberg.
    • Facebook has first stagnation in the social network’s history
    • Co-founders Saverin, Moskovitz also see their fortunes tumble
    • Mark Zuckerberg’s wealth dropped as much as $31 billion, among the biggest one-day drops in wealth ever, after Meta Platforms Inc.’s fourth-quarter results fell short of analysts’ expectations.
    • Meta is in the midst of a historic stock collapse after its earnings on Wednesday showed no growth in monthly Facebook users last quarter relative to the prior period, raising concerns about the company’s future growth.
  7. Remember Second Life? It’s Now Taking On Big Tech’s Metaverse, February 3, 2022, The Wall Street JournalWSJ.
    • Second Life – yes, the virtual world from the ‘00s – is staging a comeback to challenge tech giants like Meta that are throwing billions into the metaverse. Its creator explains to WSJ how he plans to refresh the platform – no VR headsets required. 
  8. Zuckerberg Tells Staff to Focus on Video Products as Meta’s Stock PlungesNaomi Nix, February 3, 2022, Bloomberg.
    • Meta Platforms Inc. Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg rallied his employees to focus on video products, after they watched the stock lose a quarter of its value.
    • Meta is already talking about ways to retain staff amid the stock rout. The social media giant is thinking of offering long weekends, Zuckerberg said, responding to a question on burnout. He also encouraged exhausted employees to use their vacation days. He added that based on his life experience, transitioning to a four-day work week would not be productive.
  9. Tripp acquires EvolVR to help more people fly higher in the metaverseHaje Jan Kamps, February 3, 2022, TechCrunch.
    • California-based “XR wellness and digital psychedelics platform” Tripp continues its acquisition path to growth with its acquisition of the world’s largest VR meditation community, EvolVR, following its purchase last year of PsyAssist, a mobile app used by people to keep their psychedelic experiences on track. The acquisition comes alongside the company revealing it is working on an alternate reality (AR) experience as one of the launch partners for Pokémon GO-maker Niantic‘s new toolkit, Niantic Lightship.
    • EvolVR, founded by a Unitarian Universalist minister and meditation instructor, claims to be the world’s first — and the largest — live meditation community in VR, claiming more than 40,000 people don a VR mask to tap into the powers of meditation.
  10. Building a metaverse with Chinese characteristics, February 3, 2022, The Economist.
    • The metaverse is for the foreseeable future quite literally science fiction: a fully immersive, persistent virtual world where, with the help of high-tech goggles and other kit, people interact, work and play via online avatars of their real-world selves. In the West, Mark Zuckerberg has become its most famous promoter. His renaming of Facebook in October, as Meta, accelerated a race among tech giants in Silicon Valley and Asia to be the first to turn the idea of the metaverse into reality.
