Thursday was a big day for Facebook. After contemplating many things, Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg finally made the announcement of changing his company’s name to Meta Platform Inc. In explaining the rebrand, he said that Facebook no longer encompasses what they do anymore.

According to Zuckerberg, Facebook is now not only a screen where people can see their friends and families posting posts; instead, it has become a virtual environment where people can actually enter.

Essentially, Facebook has become a virtual world to connect with people, using virtual reality headsets, augmented reality glasses, and other technological devices.

We understand that most of you reading might not understand the term – Meta. Meta is the term taken from Metaverse, which means virtual universe.

What Is Metaverse?

Metaverse is a virtual generated space where people can interact with one another. The concept of Metaverse is taken from the universe we live in. We know about the universe our world belongs to, but what if we say that there is a universe inside the computer system as well. To put it simply, the virtual reality we are aware of, Metaverse is an upgraded version.

With the change of name, Facebook has also decided on changing its logo. The new logo design looks like infinity symbolizing the vastness of the universe.

However, Facebook, the app where you share posts and register likes and comments, will remain the same. Nor are all the other social media applications like Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger.

In addition, the company’s corporate structure won’t change, but on December 1, its stock starts trading under the new name.
