    Your warnings are in vain. The Bible clearly states we will keep getting worse as a world. It must happen and it will happen. The one who endures until the end will be saved.

    You’re “here for the meta verse”?! Have you seen it? It’s beyond stupid. Stop.

    That woman is as much of a whistle-blower as much as I have Jeff Bezos delivering my newspaper.

  • HiJinx01 on December 17, 2021

    This is not news

  • Tim King on December 17, 2021

    I have a suggestion: chill out people. My goodness. Stop whining about the “metaverse” as if it were some kind of scary and dangerous place. It’s not even a real place and you can’t be physically harmed. Keepers creepers. Let’s just do some vr, have some fun, and get on with life. Not a big deal.

    You don t need Facebook. I dont cares

  • Alex Schumann on December 17, 2021

    there are still people using Facebook in 2021? :X

  • Gewey on December 17, 2021

    I had the metaverse like 20 years ago, it's called being near sighted, sitting very close to the computer, and playing literally any online game. Imagine making a worse, more expensive version of Habbo Hotel and being like "iM a rEvOlUsHuNArY!!11!!"

  • Ja Loux on December 17, 2021

    She’s on par with that Holmes whacko.

  • Dittzx on December 17, 2021

    Day 125 since Brandon abandoned American citizens in Afghanistan. Many are still there. Let’s go Brandon!

    If you're still in Facebook/Instagram after ALL THAT EVIDENCE, you're out of your mind, a literal robot, and any hope of saving you from the literal obvious impending doom is reduced to 0%.

    …and this insane girl said she's in the beta from metaverse…


  • N Travis on December 17, 2021

    I dropped all of the social media accounts in 2016. Best decision I ever made. I have less stress in my life and my phone doesn't alert constantly during the day. I was unaware the pavlov effect was every time a notification rang I became stressed and tensed almost immediately.

    If youtube did not have my damn movie collection attached I wouldn't be here either.

    I realized that the secret to making a million is saving for a better investment. I always tell myself you don't need that spending habit or vacation just yet. That mindset helped me make more money investing. For example last year I invested 80k in stocks (with the help of my Financial Advisor of course Evelyn Monping ) and made about 246k, but guess what? I put it all back and traded with her again and now I'm rounding up close to a million

    The whole point of the metaverse is not to be moderated 😭

  • Andres on December 17, 2021

    It’s happening no doubt, the main goal of it is be happy living with nothing while the elite are living real life with everything.

  • Larry Sernyk on December 18, 2021

    Meta and all social media should be shut down. People should interact in person or via live online connections.

  • SpawnPK Tom Hanks on December 19, 2021

    Why is the whistleblowers head so elongated 😂

  • N Hinton on December 19, 2021

    This 'whistleblower' wants to ban everything on the Web. Time for a real job, hon.😂
