Meta refers to the new company created by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg that is focused on the brand's Metaverse, which Zuckerberg believes is the future of technology. With many of the concepts still in the middle of development, the aptest description of the future metaverse as talked about by Zuckerberg would be a blending of augmented reality, smart house technology and VR Chat style avatars made in your image.


It was reported in the media[1] on October 19th, 2021, that Facebook had signaled its intent to change its name, as the CEO Mark Zuckerberg wanted to shift company focus to be on the Metaverse. On October 28th, 2021, during a livestream event Mark Zuckerberg announced that the parent company Facebook will be changed to Meta, which will be focused on the Metaverse, a future product and ideology pushed by Zuckerberg as the "next stage of the internet."

Online Presence

The livestream keynote event, which was hosted on the Reuters YouTube[2] channel among many others, was on the future topics of Metaverse, practical applications for the upcoming Meta glasses, as well as the capabilities of the system itself and augmented and virtual reality (shown below).

Shortly after the livestream broadcast, the website[3] for Meta went live, with various sections about who they are, what they build and future goals.

Facebook Name Change To Meta

Facebook Name Change To Meta refers to memes that use images from the name change announcement to create memes, either by changing stills from the keynote itself or taking images from it and photoshopping them into other images to create memes. These types of memes are one of many that have spawned from the singular keynote and concept of the Facebook name change.
