The Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg apologized in his Facebook comment for his recent Virtual Reality tour with the Facebook Live video that discussed about efforts for Puerto Rico by the company, which raised some serious issues.
Actually, it is too difficult to constitute the experiences through VR to a third party, and whatever Zuckerberg was seeing was all NPR’s harrowing video. Regardless of the necessity of focusing on what alike Zuckerberg looks in his cartoon avatar, it has grabbed the camera to examine the damages.
Zuckerberg said in a comment on Facebook saying that he is sorry to offend anyone through the video. He wrote that, “One of the most powerful features of VR is empathy. My goal here was to show how VR can raise awareness and help us see what’s happening in different parts of the world. I also wanted to share the news of our partnership with the Red Cross to help with the recovery. Reading some of the comments, I realize this wasn’t clear, and I’m sorry to anyone this offended.”
In another comment Zuckerberg wrote, “When you’re in VR yourself, the surroundings feel quite real. But that sense of empathy doesn’t extend well to people watching you as a virtual character on a 2D screen. That’s something we’ll need to work on over time.”
Usually Facebook is pretty careful about isolating its CEO from risks of the bad press, as Zuckerberg has a monumental team that helps him always to maintain the manicured image of him in front of users on the social media sites.
