Facebook’s “Horizon Worlds” metaverse, which allows users to interact in virtual worlds with an avatar, is falling far short of performance expectations according to internal documents obtained by the Wall Street Journal. Data shows most users of the metaverse don’t return after the first month, and the userbase has been in continuous decline since the spring.
Facebook (now known as Meta) initially set a goal of reaching 500,000 monthly active users for Horizon Worlds by the end of 2022, but revised that figure to 280,000 in recent weeks, according to company documents obtained by the Wall Street Journal.
The current number of monthly active users is less than 200,000, which is roughly the population of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
These numbers are embarrassing, given that Facebook’s other social media products — including Instagram and WhatsApp — have a combined total of more than 3.5 billion average monthly users, which is equivalent to nearly half the world’s population.
The company documents also show that most Horizon Worlds visitors usually don’t return to the app after the first month. Moreover, the user base has been continuously declining since the spring.
Horizon Worlds is designed to be “a sprawling collection of interactive virtual spaces, or worlds, in which users appearing as avatars can shop, party and work,” the Wall Street Journal notes.
“Yet there are rarely any girls in the Hot Girl Summer Rooftop Pool Party, and in Murder Village there is often no one to kill,” the Journal adds.
Internal statistics also pointed out that only nine percent of virtual worlds are ever visited by at least 50 people, and most of these worlds are never visited at all.
“An empty world is a sad world,” read one company document.
Mark Suckerberg is an ANDROID!! Look into it eyes……dead!…..totally VOID of LIFE There may have been a ‘human’ Mark Suckerberg, early on…..but it’s an Android now! LOL
Oh!!…..I always knew this would be a FAILURE, right from the start. Only a ‘handful’ of Zombies will ‘live’ in there. There would have been a few more Zombies in Suckerbergs metaverse…..but Suckerberg, and his Globalist Masters, are killing off the Zombies (and Demons) with the Death Jab!! Ahahahaha!!
Nice article to share with one of the candidates running for city council in my town. His campaign is. If I win, I will bring business to our town. I would invite the metaverse company to open their headquarters here.” 🧐
Have you watched America’s Funniest Home Videos lately? They show Virtual Reality users engaged and crashing and falling. Cue the laugh track. Sick.

The problem are the characters. People want to see real people like inTikTok not computer generated cheap graphics. It will fall apart. But maybe Meta is simply a company created to write off losess and eventually disappear, with all other products get bought out by Google or some other company? I think WhatsApp will stay strong. Facebook could remain. Instagram also. I could be wrong.
