Hiding toxicity: Senators turn on Facebook over teens Why Instagram's detrimental effect on teens has been sensationalized "Our mission remains the same - to connect people. Our apps and their brands don't change. We also remain a company that creates technology based on people's needs. But all of our products, including apps, are now united by a common vision - to bring the meta-universe to life. And we now have a name that reflects the scope of what we do," he said.
Earlier in the day, he announced that Facebook would change its name to Meta starting Thursday. According to Zuckerberg, the new brand will emphasize the company's focus on the meta-universe, where people will refuse screens and experience the effect of presence in virtual reality. According to his plan, in the near future it will be possible to create a virtual environment in which it will be possible to communicate with friends, work and play. As an example, he demonstrated how a user can take part in a concert that is going on simultaneously "live" and in virtual space. He also presented the company's logo in the form of a blue Möbius ribbon.
