(ANSA) – MILAN, 25 JUL – The Meta-Facebook metaverse, to date embodied in the Horizon Worlds platform, is also preparing for adult content. In a post on the company’s official blog, we read about the update of the usage policies, which will allow developers to create worlds and services labeled “18+”, ie for an adult audience. According to the UploadVR site, creators who have already posted work on the metaverse received an email asking them to manually mark the access level to their projects, “open” or “mature”. As indicated in the new policies, adult content may include “near-nudity, images of people in suggestive positions or in an environment that suggests their engagement in sexual actions”, but categorically prohibits pornography, as well as “content. of explicit nudity, the representations of people in clearly explicit positions and sexually provocative or allusive worlds “. The same goes for illegal drugs in real life and violence. For example, you can promote “marijuana, alcohol, tobacco or age-regulated activities, including gambling” but not “illegal drugs or prescription drug abuse”. On the basis of the Wayback Machine internet archive, which allows you to visit web pages modified over time or replaced, until last April Meta prohibited the contents that today it makes possible with the tag for adults. Immediately after beta launches in the United States and Canada, the company introduced a privacy protection system to Horizon Worlds that, by default, prevents other users from putting their avatars too close to those of other visitors. to avoid harassment while using the metaverse. According to The Verge, these rules could be loosened in the 18+ worlds precisely in consideration of the type of content proposed. (HANDLE).
