    Facebook, The Metaverse, Ep #98

    Facebook, The Metaverse, Ep #98

    Mark is joined this week by Luke Lloyd and they dive into why Facebook is deciding to change their name and what it means for the future of the company. Mark Zuckerberg announced that the name change is going to revolve around the “Metaverse”. Mark & Luke discuss where Facebook has been, where they are going, and even some potential names that Facebook will choose.
    Facebook was founded upon sketchy values and ideals. Between the Winklevoss Twins suing Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook originating as a “Hot or Not?” college platform ranking the looks of people, the history of Facebook proves to be volatile. Is this name change a PR stunt to distract from the current issues Facebook is facing with data, privacy, and censorship? How does cryptocurrency fit into all of these big tech firms and the future of blockchain technology? Mark & Luke discuss all of this on this on this week’s episode of The Capitalist Investor.

Love the informal nature of current events tied loosely to finance. I tell my math students constantly - money matters - look for it in every aspect of your lives. You are slowly shaping conservative views in a modest way. Future topics: economic effect of primarily producing, manufacturing or selling made in America products. Can it be done? I wonder what patriotism would look like if we really tried. How can we use our alliance relations to boost our own economy? How can religion fit into finance - or doesn’t it matter. I think it does. Is there any merit to stock clubs informally? Are penny stocks still a thing? Are they fair game? Stop me. Lol

Big Time Review-Just sub/like/listen!!

As in the latest episode regarding the importance of networking, the same macro premise is how I found this insightful podcast. Deep discussions covering a range of thoughts and segments makes each episode a must listen. Those looking for deep laser focused discussions will find the episodes such as the NFT's group or 5 stocks to buy up their alley. There are few podcasts I bump up in my 1-3 order the moment I see an episode release.
