Facebook name change Meta

Talking about expanding its reach to virtual reality beyond social media, Facebook has now changed its name to Meta.  The word Metaverse is being read and heard everywhere. 

But what is this metaverse?  

The metaverse is actually a virtual environment, in which you will not be limited to just looking at the screen, but you will be able to feel it by going deep inside this environment.  This is possible through Virtual Reality Headsets, Augmented Reality Glasses, Smartphones and other devices.

Facebook will now be known as Meta.  The company has said that it will expand its reach in virtual reality beyond social media.  A few days ago, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had hinted at changing the company's name, since then the word Metaverse was used a lot.  And now that Facebook's name has been changed to Meta on Thursday night, the Metaverse is being read and heard everywhere.  

But what is this metaverse?  

How can it affect your life and what is it of your use, no one is telling about it.  Don't worry, we'll tell you everything.

Will be sitting far and near too close

To understand the metaverse, you have to think a little differently.  After some time from today, when the Internet will become an important part of our life, then all the work will be done in the metaverse.  Metaverse means Virtual Environment.  Mark Zuckerberg has said about it, such an environment on the Internet that you can go inside, not just by looking at the screen.  Where people sitting far and wide (even in other countries) can meet, work or play in virtual communities connected to each other.  All this is possible through Virtual Reality Headsets, Augmented Reality Glasses, Smartphones and other devices.

What will you be able to do in the Metaverse?

Everything you want to do.  You will be able to go to a virtual concert.  You will be able to go on online trips, create and view artwork, try as well as buy digital clothes.  Work-from-home as if it would be a normal thing.  Even sitting at home, it will feel as if you are sitting in the office.  A meeting can be held at any time and the people sitting in the meeting will feel that the entire discussion has been done sitting in a room.

Facebook (now Meta) has already launched a meeting software.  This software named Horizon Workrooms is for companies.  It can be used with Oculus VR headsets.  This creates such an environment for the meeting that it is difficult to believe at first.

Think once, who has so much difficulty in understanding and explaining, it will not be easy to do such work.  But it is said that as far as your thinking can go, all that can be done in the world of computer and internet.  It is possible to make your vision a reality.

Analyst Victoria Petrock, who closely observes and understands Metaverse technology, says that everything is possible in this environment, including online life such as shopping and social media.  She says that this is the next revolution of connectivity, in which people will live exactly the same virtual life as they live physically.

Will the name of the Facebook App also change? 

Facebook will now be known as Meta,  Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced this at the annual conference held in Auckland on Thursday.  Now there is a doubt in the minds of people whether Facebook is going to change the name of the app as well?  Will the Facebook app be known as the Meta app?  The answer to this question is no.  Facebook app name won't change.  Only the name of the company has changed.  The company's product names will remain the same as before, such as Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp.
