BRUSSELS (AP) – Facebook researcher Francis Haugen says the world should fear the effects of metaphysics. He said that the social media giant has changed his focus, that the imaginary world of the future will make people give up a lot of personal information, become addicted and give another problem monopoly in the online world.

“Facebook needs to have a transparent plan for Metavers before they can start building all this because they have shown that they can hide behind walls about Facebook, they are making unnecessary mistakes, they are doing things that put their own interests ahead.”
Methavas is the kind of Internet that came to life., Or at least made in 3D.

Officials in Washington and European capitals are taking her claim seriously. EU lawmakers demanded an immediate end to the 2 1/2 hour hearing on Monday.

Facebook says it supports more regulatory efforts in the United States than in the European Union and the United Kingdom.
Hawgen is calling on politicians to investigate further because Facebook is focused on metavers – the world is working to build others, including Microsoft and video game companies.
