The demonstration will draw attention to Meta’s long history of controversies over user data and censorship
Menlo Park, CA — (EMAILWIRE) — Big Dog Metaverse, the self-proclaimed “coolest crypto community,” will be sponsoring a protest outside the Headquarters of Meta (previously known as Facebook) in Menlo Park to draw attention to repeated concerns about Meta’s management, ethics, political involvements, alleged censorship, and most significantly its business model which relies on selling users’ data to advertisers. Big Dog Metaverse claims that Meta’s business model is flawed and claims to provide an alternative metaverse that will not be subject to privacy concerns or censorship.
Big Dog issued the following statement:
“Facebook has changed its name to Meta in an unfortunate attempt to dominate the metaverse with the same unscrupulous practices they have used in social media platforms. Meta and Mark Zuckerberg have a long history of misusing user data for use by nefarious political actors, scam marketers, and more. Moreover, they have sole authority to censor users when users express ‘disagreeable’ points of view. Big Dog Metaverse is completely decentralized meaning users decide their reality instead of large corporate overlords. We are holding this demonstration at Meta HQ to let people know, they have a choice and they should choose wisely.”
