Today at Connect 2021, CEO Mark Zuckerberg introduced Meta, which brings together Facebook's apps and technologies under one new company brand. Meta's focus will be to bring the metaverse to life and help people connect, find communities and grow businesses.

The metaverse will feel like a hybrid of today's online social experiences, sometimes expanded into three dimensions or projected into the physical world. It will let you share immersive experiences with other people even when you can't be together — and do things together you couldn't do in the physical world. -It's the next evolution in a long line of social technologies, and it's ushering in a new chapter for the company. Zuckerberg shared more about this vision in a founder's letter.




The annual Connect conference brings together augmented and virtual reality developers, content creators, marketers and others to celebrate the industry's momentum and growth. This year's virtual event explored what experiences in the metaverse could feel like over the next decade - from social connection, to entertainment, gaming, fitness, work, education and commerce. The company also announced new tools to help people build for the metaverse, including Presence Platform, which will enable new mixed reality experiences on Quest 2, and a $150-million investment in immersive learning to train the next generation of creators.

You can watch the full Connect keynote and learn more about how the metaverse will unlock new opportunities at meta.com. You can also learn more about the company's work over the past several months to develop the Meta brand on its design blog.

Facebook's corporate structure is not changing as Meta. However, how it reports on financials will. Starting with results for the fourth quarter of 2021, the company plans to report on two operating segments: Family of Apps and Reality Labs. Meta also intends to start trading under the new stock ticker that the company reserved, MVRS, on December 1. Today's announcement does not affect how the company uses or shares data.

About Meta
Meta builds technologies that help people connect, find communities, and grow businesses. When Facebook launched in 2004, it changed the way people connect. Apps like Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp further empowered billions around the world. Now, Meta is moving beyond 2D screens toward immersive experiences like augmented and virtual reality to help build the next evolution in social technology.

Zuckerberg is the very definition of a 21st century detached, Ivy League sociopath.

None of this 'American Dream' garbage, he was born into wealth & privilege and has leveraged that to wreak havoc on Western Democracy.

You know what's crazy , alot of people say they dislike facebook, they hate it and its crap, but most who say this still use the site. Speaking for myself, i found a site called vk 7 years ago and haven't went back to facebook since. VK is the best social media site i ever seen, use, etc. Better design and layout, smooth design, real live support, less copyright nonsense, freedom of speech, better community pages, night mode, better looking photo gallery and music player pages, everything about vk is 10x times better than facebook.

I think the best social media site back in the days were google plus and myspace/imeem, but as usual people ruined and shut down good sites

With some effort towards integration, you can probably have Meta + Stadia. Or Meta + East German secret police.

This is the real image, you can look the video, i'm not joking.
Some robot decided it was a good idea to put a ketchup bootle as a bookend behind him in the video of the robot overloard. I guess they figured us humans liked it so it would make him more relatable

Hey, that's not ketchup, it's barbecue sauce! That's completely different. It's what human men use when they are in close proximity to other human men when they are barbecuing. It's not generic and soulless at all, no sir. So humanizing! Such character!

/s if that wasn't clear.
