Facebook becomes ... Meta

The social network Facebook continues to be called Facebook, but its parent company - Facebook also until then - changes its name.

The name of the company Facebook changed to Meta. The company's platforms - Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp - keep their name, only the parent company sees its name changed. So to sum up Facebook becomes Meta, but Facebook remains Facebook, understood?

The word to Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook

"Our brand is so closely linked to a product that it cannot represent everything we do today, let alone the future," said Mark Zuckerberg - founder of Facebook - to justify this choice. We are at the start of a new chapter for the internet, and also for our company. The next platform will be even more immersive, an embodied internet where you live the experience rather than just watch it. We call it the metaverse, and it will affect every product we make. In this future, you will be able to instantly teleport as a hologram to be at the office without taking transport, at a concert with friends, or in your parents' living room. This will open up more opportunities wherever you live. You will be able to spend more time on what matters to you, waste less time in traffic jams, and reduce your carbon footprint ”. Quite a program… or not!
