According to reports from The Wall Street Journal, “the implication is that Facebook should look to the future and not get bogged down in a messy past.”
Mark Zuckerberg is holding virtual reality meetings after Facebook officially changed its name to Meta to reflect the company’s new approach, which is working on building its metaverse .
Sources familiar with the matter recently revealed to The Wall Street Journal that Zuckerberg allegedly meets with digital avatars who replace company executives and would have encouraged other employees to do the same. According to reports from the outlet, “the implication is that Facebook should look to the future and not get bogged down in a messy past.”
Announcing the corporation’s name change to Meta in October, Zuckerberg explained that the original name does not reflect everything the company does. “Now they see us as a social media company. But in our DNA we are a company that builds technology to connect people,” he commented, adding that the ‘metaverse’ will allow people to give up screens and experience the effect of presence in virtual reality.
Likewise, the company issued a statement in which it stated: “The ‘metaverse’ will feel like a hybrid of current online social experiences, sometimes expanded in three dimensions or projected in the physical world. It will allow sharing immersive experiences with other people Even when they can’t be together, and do things together that they couldn’t do in the physical world. ”
