Facebook could stop being Facebook in the new strategy of the company that would begin to dedicate all its efforts to the metaverse.
Facebook was born in February 2004 and over the years it has been growing and changing, but its main social network and name have remained. However, in the last few hours, the news has broken out that they can change the name of the company in order to face the new stage, especially focused on the metaverse.
We are not talking about distant plans. It is being reported that it is possible that this will be announced at the annual Connect conference that the company will hold on October 28, they report in The Verge, although it is not ruled out that it will happen sooner.
As we say, this name change would defeat the birth of the metaverse that wants to completely change the internet, but there may be other reasons that are more than known behind the new strategy.
In The Verge they remember that a few months ago Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, reported on his plans and commented that ” we will go from people seeing us primarily as a social media company to being a metaverse company.” But it could also serve to leave behind the bad image they suffer.
In any case, it is nothing new, in 2015 we already saw a similar movement in Google, when it changed the name of the company to Alphabet in order to change its structure.
The new name of Facebook is a secret that has not yet been shared, although different options have been leaked, all of them unconfirmed, such as the Horizon.
It also remains to be seen if this affects in any way the name of their social networks or if there is only a rebranding in the company to which they belong. In any case, knowing that there is talk of a change for next week, we will not have to wait too long.
