The Internet is a wild place, as anyone who has been online for more than 5 minutes knows. Anonymity can be a powerful drug for some people. This is the focus of building positive play in the GamesBeatSummit22 Metaverse panel.
“The reason is [concern about harassment] It applies to the Metaverse, but whatever it means is now in Web 2.0, “said Justin Davis, co-founder and CEO. Spectrum Lab.. “We obviously don’t have that right. When it comes to trust and security in a particular company, and content moderation, the overall size of the Internet is much smaller.”
