While announcing the change Mark Zuckerberg said that this change will bring together different arts and technologies and it will not change its corporate structure. “Facebook is one of the most used products in the history of the world. It is an iconic social media brand, but increasingly it just doesn’t encompass anything we do.” Mark Zuckerberg said during the presentation of the new name. Further, speaking at the company’s live stream, virtual and augmented reality conference, Mark said that privacy and safety need to be built into the metaverse as the tech giant battles criticism from lawmakers and regulators over the market power, along with algorithmic decisions and the policing of abuse, on its platform.
