Mark Zuckerberg said during the announcement of the company’s new name, “We have learned a lot while battling social issues and being together on very close platforms and now it is time to take a new approach from the experience of what we have learned. Begin the chapter. I am proud to announce that starting today our company is now META. That is our mission. Our apps and brand names are not changing. Today we are known as a social media company, but by DNA we are a company that develops technology that connects people.
What changed and what didn’t?
It is most important for you to know what has changed and what has not changed after the new announcement of Facebook. Only the branding of the company has changed i.e. the Facebook company will now be known as Meta. Meta will be written on the company’s headquarters and not Facebook. Facebook is not changing the name of the app and neither is changing the name of Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. There is not going to be any change in various positions of the company, but from December 1, the stock of the company will have a sticker in the name of MVRS. The Thumb (Like) logo in the company’s headquarters has now been removed and has been replaced by a new logo which is similar to Infinity.
What is meta in the eyes of Mark Zuckerberg?
Mark Zuckerberg has called the metaverse a virtual environment. According to Zuckerburk, you can go to a different world just by looking at the screen where you can connect with people through virtual reality headsets, augment reality goggles, smartphone apps etc., play games, shop and use social media. In the Metaverse, you’ll be able to do virtually everything you normally would. Zuckerberg has said that millions of people will get jobs through Metaverse technology.
What is Metaverse?
Metaverse may have suddenly come into the limelight today, but it is a very old word. It was mentioned by Neil Stephenson in his dystopian novel “Snow Crash” in 1992. In Stephenson’s novel, the metaverse meant a world in which people connected with the digital world in the game with the help of gadgets such as headphones and virtual reality. Metaverse is already being used for gaming as well. Cryptocurrencies are used in the metaverse. Simply put, the Metaverse is a new world of the Internet where people will be present even if they are not present, although the Metaverse will take a long time to complete.
