COMPANY EMPLOYEES MAKE FUCK WITH METAVERSE
According to leaked information from within the company, Meta employees also do not believe in Mark Zuckerberg’s dream. It turned out that company employees were sarcastically referring to the changes made to the Metaverse, with words like “MMH” or “Make Mark Happy” sarcastically referring to the project.

The truth is, if we don’t like Metaverse, how can we expect our users to love it? ” left a message.
