Social media is agog since the news that Facebook has changed its company’s name to Meta broke.
Facebook had announced that the name change, which was announced at the Connect augmented and virtual reality conference, reflects the company’s growing ambitions beyond social media.
“Today we are seen as a social media company, but in our DNA we are a company that builds technology to connect people, and the metaverse is the next frontier just like social networking was when we got started,” Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg had said.

Facebook calling themselves Meta is like a guy who has been an a-hole all his life but decides to get a haircut and new clothes instead of therapy and says he is a changed man.
