During the Facebook Connect 2021 event, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that the company will be rebranding as Meta, with the main goal being to bring together their apps and technologies under a new name. The ultimate goal is to bring the metaverse to life and help people connect, find communities as well as grow their businesses. Users will be able to share immersive experiences with other people, even when you’re not together physically. Read more for two videos explaining everything and showing how it will work.
To kick things off, a new Meta marquee has already been installed at its headquarters in Menlo Park, California, replacing the iconic thumbs-up “like” logo with a blue-colored infinity shape. One thing to note is that the Facebook social media network name will remain the same, but other things will fall under the new Meta moving forward.

Today we are seen as a social media company. But in our DNA we are a company that builds technology to connect people. Right now, our brand is so tightly linked to one product that it can’t possibly represent everything that we’re doing today, let alone in the future,” said Mark Zuckerberg.
