Facebook is Reportedly Changing its Name

Facebook is reportedly planning to change its name next week, according to a report from The Verge.

The new name will be trying to shift Facebook’s focus to becoming a “metaverse company” rather than a social media company by rebranding its main app as one of many under a single parent company.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg will discuss the name change at Facebook’s annual Connect conference on October 28th, but The Verge reports the company could announce the new name before then.

Back in July, Zuckerberg told The Verge he views the metaverse as “an embodied internet, where instead of just viewing content—you are in it.”
