Facebook will unveil the name change inspired by Metaverse next week.
According to a report from The Verge, Facebook is set to announce a name change for the company next week, which will reflect its all-encompassing focus on adapting for the Metaverse concept.
The rebrand would likely position the blue Facebook app as one of many products under a parent company overseeing groups like Instagram, WhatsApp, Oculus, and more.
Zuckerberg has already flagged his intention to adopt Facebook for the Metaverse, recently explaining that he envisions Facebook becoming ‘a Metaverse company’ which has led some to speculate that ‘Meta’ will be the new umbrella title for Facebook’s business interests.
What if Facebook was looking to Slugworth the lakers – providing a fictional story of a corporate name change to a selected group, in order to then see whether it then makes its way to the press? That probably also seems a little too far from reality to be true, but maybe Facebook is actually just trying to weed out the leaks, rather than make a name update.
