In its first-quarter earnings report on Wednesday, Meta revealed that Zuckerberg’s Metaverse has taken a $4 billion loss.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg keeps racking up losses from his metaverse investments while downsizing his social media company through cost cuts.

In its first-quarter earnings report on Wednesday, Meta said its Reality Labs unit, which is tasked with building the virtual reality and augmented reality technologies for the futuristic metaverse, recorded a $3.99 billion operating loss.

The unit generated $339 million in revenue during the quarter, a minuscule sum for a company that brings in tens of billions of dollars a quarter in advertising sales.
