"Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the social media giant will change the name of its holding company to Meta, in a rebrand that comes as the company faces a series of public relations crises.

Zuckerberg revealed the new name at Facebook’s annual AR/VR conference on Thursday, where he outlined the company’s virtual-reality vision for the future.

The CEO sketched his plans to build the “metaverse” – a digital world built over our own, comprising virtual reality headsets and augmented reality. “We believe the metaverse will be the successor of the mobile internet,” Zuckerberg said. “We’ll be able to feel present – like we’re right there with people no matter how far apart we actually are.”

Sporting a blue infinity symbol as a logo, the new holding company Meta will encompass Facebook, its largest subsidiary, as well as apps such as Instagram, WhatsApp and the virtual reality brand Oculus.
"


A lot of scepticism about the purpose of the rebranding. Personally i think Skynet would have been a better choice".

World devolving not evolving due to technology. As others say in the comments....miss the simpler humanistic times of the 60s-80s, and when soul and spirit meant the world, whereas nowadays the virtual world is more important than the world.

Tik Tok channel, tech dev who dives into how evil Facebook is with tracking and data mining, and where Meta is leading to a dystopian world, education system via Meta, not real life, etc, eventually people living in Meta because itll be more fun and interesting than real life. Full on The Matrix slavery coming.

There are many videos so rather than post the specific ones, posting the channel and you can flick thru them to find the relevant ones.

In short tho.....facebook, google, etc dont literally listen to conversations, itd be a crime of political espionage and too cumbersome anyway. Instead, even if you dont have facebook etc, or the apps, other apps track everything you do online and send data to facebook etc anyway, and they piece together everything about you, from your IP, your device mac, and even keep track of how often your device is in the vicinity of other peoples devices (partner, sister, friend etc) so if they search for a sofa say, you will start seeing ads for sofas. Learns human behavior, the humans you interact with, and builds a comprehensive ID of you, all your online nuances, shopping habits, places visited, online content youve shown interest in etc. Facebook especially dangerous because most of the world (poorer countries etc) only have Facebook as their internet source. So Facebook is king, the core that all other tech uses....everything from clearview facial recognition, to Google, everything.
