So is the metaverse is going to replace the internet? And are we all supposed to live there?
Well Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg thinks so.
In fact, Zuckerberg announced the new name for Facebook yesterday, “Meta.” Meta is a social technology company focusing on bringing people together in an alternate universe.
In addition Meta will help Facebook grow even bigger with a “creative economy.” And Meta also consolidates all the company apps and technologies under the umbrella of just one brand.
Here’s the list of the top 5 companies owned by Facebook Inc:
Facebook. Facebook is arguably the leader in the social media industry.
Messenger. Facebook Messenger, commonly known as Messenger, was originally developed as Facebook Chat in 2008.
Instagram. Instagram is a photo and video sharing app.
There’s no universally accepted definition of a real “metaverse,” except maybe that it’s a fancier successor to the internet.
