Mark Zuckerberg Reveals Facebook Is Now Meta

Everything Facebook revealed about the Metaverse in 11 minutes (CNET) YouTube Tips ⓘ

Today, Thursday, October 28, 2021 at Connect 2021, CEO Mark Zuckerberg introduced Meta, which brings together apps and technologies under one new company brand. Meta’s focus will be to bring the metaverse to life and help people connect, find communities and grow businesses.




The metaverse will feel like a hybrid of today’s online social experiences, sometimes expanded into three dimensions or projected into the physical world. It will let you share immersive experiences with other people even when you can’t be together — and do things together you couldn’t do in the physical world. It’s the next evolution in a long line of social technologies, and it’s ushering in a new chapter for our company. Mark shared more about this vision in a founder’s letter.

Mark Zuckerberg so far has denied that the name change was a response to harsh criticism and whistleblower exposure by Facebook Product Manager Frances Haugen at the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Consumer Protection hearing Tuesday, October 5, 2021.




According to Facebook, annual Connect conference brings together augmented and virtual reality developers, content creators, marketers and others to celebrate the industry’s momentum and growth. This year’s virtual event explored what experiences in the metaverse could feel like over the next decade — from social connection, to entertainment, gaming, fitness, work, education and commerce. We also announced new tools to help people build for the metaverse, including Presence Platform, which will enable new mixed reality experiences on Quest 2, and a $150-million investment in immersive learning to train the next generation of creators.

Meta builds technologies that help people connect, find communities, and grow businesses. When Facebook launched in 2004, it changed the way people connect. Apps like Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp further empowered billions around the world. Now, Meta is moving beyond 2D screens toward immersive experiences like augmented and virtual reality to help build the next evolution in social technology.
