what’s going to happen to my account now that Facebook

A few days ago we told you that Mark Zuckerberg revealed Meta, the new name of the mother company of Facebook and all its sister apps Whatsapp, Instagram and Messenger. Many people were confused when they saw this announcement and do not know very well what will happen next, so we explain it to you below.

What is this name change and what does it imply?

The first thing to explain is that Facebook as a social network and as a company were always 2 different things. The first is that app that you use every day, where you post memes, comment and Like your friends and where you participate in groups and shop in the marketplace. The second is the organization led by Mark Zuckerberg that made sure that Facebook as an app, as well as its sister apps and Oculus, worked properly and created new features for users to attract more and more people. The problem is that they were called the same and this could be a bit confusing. The solution? Change the name of the company, to differentiate it from the social network which is only one of the many products offered. When Facebook started it was just a social network and that was it, but today it already has under its shoulder instant messaging services, photo and video social network and even a virtual reality company. Thus, the objective of changing this name was to find one that reflects the future vision of interconnecting the world virtually through all these services and others that are already being worked on. Mark Zuckerberg’s dream is to create the metaverse, so he decided to name the new company Meta. “Meta can mean ‘beyond,’ and it encapsulates our commitment to building social technologies that take us beyond what is possible today through digital connection,” said Zuckerberg during the presentation of Meta a few days ago.

And what will happen to my Facebook account?

Broadly speaking, nothing. Your Facebook application and profile will continue to work exactly the same, as the change was more structural than practical. Perhaps the only change you will start to notice is that the home screens of all apps now clearly indicate that they are part of Meta and not just Facebook.
