However, the name of all the company’s apps like Facebook , WhatsApp, Instagram etc. will remain the same. Mark Zuckerberg at the Annual Developers Conference said, ‘We have come to know about the social problems and many challenges of living under closed platforms and now it is time to bring together what we learned and prepare for the next step.
Why did Facebook change its name?
“From today our company’s name will be META. There will be no change in our target. We will still work with the aim of bringing people together. There will be no change in our apps and their brand.

Mark Zuckerberg says he expects the metaverse to reach a billion people within the next decade. He believes that ‘Metaverse’ will be a platform on which people will communicate and work to create products and content.
