Corporation behind Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp changes its name to “Meta”

Key facts:
  • The social network Facebook will not change its name.

  • “I hope that we are seen as a metaverse company,” said the businessman.

It’s official. Facebook Inc. changed its name and is now renamed “Meta”, a bid by the company’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, to expand the emporium and set his sights on the “metaverse.”

It’s about the name change of the corporation behind of the social networks Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram, as reported by the director of the company himself this Thursday during the Connect event.

With this, Zuckerberg confirms the information that was released last week, which was also published in CriptoNoticias, thanks to an unofficial source who spoke of the company’s intention to change its name.

«We are a company that creates technology to connect. Together, we can finally put people at the center of our technology. And together, we can unlock a vastly larger creator economy, ”said Zuckerberg.

He added that the name of Facebook does not represent everything the company does right now and that, despite the change, it is still “closely linked” to the product, “but over time, I hope we will be seen as a metaverse company.”
