Facebook’s New Name


On Thursday, October 28th, Facebook officially changed its company name to “Meta.” This name exemplifies the company’s growing ambition to go beyond social media; they have the vision to create a virtual world for people to both work and play in. Over the past few years, Facebook– or, as it is now called, Meta– has peaked interest in hardware technology from the Portal devices, Ray-Ban stories glasses, and many oculus rift glasses. Founder Mark Zuckerberg showed the ambition of the company through a demonstration of him playing cards in outer space with his friends in different costumes. Although this was just a preview, he believes that this will go mainstream in just about ten years.
