Zuckerberg called "heartless billionaire" for Puerto Rico VR live-stream

Zuckerberg called

In a move that rivaled the president tossing rolls of paper towels, free-throw style, into a crowd of hurricane survivors, Mark Zuckerberg created his own completely avoidable public-relations disaster Monday when he chose to demonstrate Facebook's new Facebook Spaces app-which lets users explore real destinations as Wii-like cartoon avatars-in hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico.

There were more than 50,000 comments on the livestream, which included positive messages of support for the Facebook founder and his work, as well as criticism about Facebook's role in allowing Russian propaganda to be spread on its platform during the 2016 USA elections.

Along with head of social virtual reality Rachel Franklin, Zuckerberg visited hurricane damaged Puerto Rico as a floating VR avatar to observe the damage from the comfort of their offices California wearing VR headsets."We are on a bridge here, and it's flooded". During the presentation, which was hosted from Facebook's headquarters in Silicon Valley, Zuckerberg detailed how the company is using artificial intelligence and satellite imagery to identify areas of need on the island.

"Facebook is very focused on trying to help out in the recovery effort", he repeats.

Zuckerberg's use of his cartoonish avatar comes as Facebook prepares to host its Oculus Connect, its annual Oculus developer conference. He pointed out that Facebook has been aiding the disaster relief by sending employees down their to help with connectivity.

"Yeah, it's really insane to feel like you're in the middle of it... right, do you wanna teleport somewhere else?"

Zuckerberg also noted that Facebook had already donated more than $1 million to relief efforts. Through AI, they intend to build population maps, which would help organisations to understand where help is needed the most.
