Facebook is now ‘Meta’


Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said his company is renaming itself “Meta” to encompass its virtual-reality vision for the future.

Experts point out that it also appears to be an attempt to change the subject from the Facebook papers, a leaked document trove that has revealed the ways Facebook ignored internal reports and warnings of the harms it’s social network created or magnified across the world.

Zuckerberg says he expects the Metaverse to reach a billion people within the next decade.
