Facebook changes its corporate name, now it is called Meta

Today the founder and CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, ad that the Facebook organization will change its name to Meta, in order to reflect its growing focus on the metaverse.

Among other things, Zuckerberg pointed out that “from now on, we will be the metaverse first, not Facebook first”, adding that “our brand is so closely linked to a product that it is not possible that it represents everything we do today, much less the future”.

The mission of the company will be the same, which is to bring people and applications together and its brands will not change either. In addition, as the founder of Facebook puts it, the company will continue to be the one that designs technology around people.

To give you an idea until now, the organization that was in charge of all the products and applications was Facebook. This does not mean that your application will change its name, on the contrary, it will remain Facebook. Goal will be the corporation under which all products and applications will be.

Without going too far, something similar was done by Google in 2015, when it founded Alphabet and Google from a company that governed the entire ecosystem became a company under the Alphabet government.

What will change in all products, including applications, is that they will have a new vision, which is “to help bring the metaverse to life.”

The metaverse will be the future place where people can work, interact, create content, products and more.

In addition Zuckerberg also commented that a «As the new brand begins to appear on our products, I hope that people around the world will get to know the Meta brand and the future we represent.«.

The founder of Facebook explained that the word “goal” comes from the Greek “beyond” and this for him symbolizes that there is always something more to build, that there is always a new chapter in history and that the history of the company is a story that began in a college dormitory and grew beyond anything they imagined.

He also said that they are making a fundamental change in the company and are “analyzing and reporting on our business as two different segments: one for our family of applications and one for our work on future platforms. Our work on the metaverse is not just one of these segments. The metaverse encompasses both social experiences and future technology. As we broaden our vision, it’s time for us to embrace a new brand«.

Zuckerberg estimates that the Metaverse will reach 1 billion people in about 10 years and thinks that millions of jobs will be created.

Although Zuckerberg denied that this change is due to the recent negative events suffered by Facebook, many are those who attribute this change to these events, including the so-called “Facebook papers”, a leak of various documents that seriously compromise the firm.
