Meta Q1 2022 results: An expensive gamble on the metaverse
29 April 2022
Meta presented mixed results against low expectations, with its ad business a concern in the age of privacy.
Reels is at the core of the company’s strategy to win users given heightened competition, but its monetisation challenge persists.
Meta spent $3.7 billion on its metaverse gamble in the quarter. A higher-end device will help address strengthening enterprise demand for VR headsets, but the route to profitability remains unclear.
