We have all heard the rumors of Facebook re-branding itself. And now it has finally happened as Mark Zuckerberg had himself posted in the feed too. So many people are confused at this turn of events as it is quite confusing to grasp at the first go.
If you are one of those people, then no need to worry because we have got your back. We will explain it in terms that are more easy and simple to understand for anyone.
Facebook had gone ahead and renamed itself, Meta. This is done to bring about the next generation of the internet and get this started. The next generation of the internet is supposedly called Metaverse, so they have renamed themselves as such.
Now, what is this Metaverse? It is a combination of virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and digital infrastructure that are going to be backed by decentralized technologies such as cryptocurrency and blockchain.
Now you might be wondering and panicking and questioning yourself about what will happen to Facebook now? Is it going to go away? Is it dead? Well, yes, but also no. We know we do not want to confuse you anymore.
There is this website that we know is still going to exist. So if you have the Facebook app and an account then rest assured it’s not going to go away at all.
Meta is something different that is going to have all the Meta-owned properties such as Instagram, Messenger, WhatsApp, and Facebook. So they are technically different in nature.
So this might as well be the future that we were looking forward to. We are not going to lie even if there is a major change happening, we are excited about it. We are sure that most of you are too. This Metaverse might as well be the next best thing.
That is all for now. We will definitely keep you updated on the news. So make sure that you keep your eyes on the news. Take care of yourselves!
