FACEBOOK CHANGES NAME TO META

Today, Facebook announced that it was changing its name to Meta. The move looked to be in an effort to distance itself from from all the issues that have cropped up as of late from its social media roots.

Notable Quotes: “From now on, we’re going to be the metaverse first. Not Facebook first,” Zuckerberg said at Connect, the company’s annual event focused on virtual and augmented reality. “Facebook is one of the most-used products in the world. But increasingly, it doesn’t encompass everything that we do. Right now, our brand is so tightly linked to one product that it can’t possibly represent everything we are doing.” -Mark Zuckerberg, Meta CEO
