Facebook to change its name


October 20, Fineko/abc.az. Facebook plans to change its name next week to reflect its focus on building a "metaverse".

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg believes that the metaverse will provide expanded opportunities for creative professionals, those who want to live and work away from the city center, as well as those living in areas where access to education or recreational facilities is limited.

This August, the company presented virtual offices Horizon Workrooms, which can be connected to via videoconference or using virtual reality helmet Oculus VR.

Social network Facebook was founded in February 2004 by 19-year-old American student Mark Zuckerberg. The headquarters is located in Menlo Park, California. Facebook also owns Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger services.
