Word on the grapevine is that the social media platform Facebook is planning to change its name.

This powerful rebranding, according to The Verge, is happening for one reason: an metaverse. In fact, Zuck wants to position Facebook as more of a social media company.

To the best of our knowledge, this move appears to be a Google reorganization under the name of the Alphabet. That means the Facebook app itself is unlikely to change its name, instead there will be a shadow business where the company will have all the individual units.

In other words, when you start up WhatsApp, it doesn't say "With Facebook" anywhere. A new moniker will replace it

Viewed from this point of view, the rebranding makes sense. The company has been pumping a lot of resources into the upcoming AR products and THE ZUCKMAN has been clear about its goals in terms of building the metaverse.
