Many media vehicles shared a few of his sentences said last Thursday, October 28:

“I’ve been thinking a lot about our identity as an iconic social networking brand … Right now, our brand is so tightly linked to one product … Over time, I want us to be seen as a metaverse company,” the CEO said.

At the same time, rebranding the corporation in charge of Facebook could help the company separate itself from the numerous social media scandals, such as how it allegedly spreads hate speech and misinformation. 

Is there a date for the change yet? 

However, because the concept is theoretical, it will take time for Facebook to evolve into a metaverse firm. While it does not happen, The company should keep increasing. Right now, Social Media serves more than 3.5 billion people around the world.
