Facebook Is Changing Its Name–3 Names It Could Be
People do not like change, so when you open your Facebook page next week, you might not be thrilled. After a year of turbulence, Facebook is making a big change.
Facebook is changing its name, apparently. Also, you won't see that famous blue 'F', either. According to The Verge, the tech website, Facebook is planning on changing the company name. Facebook has said that it will not comment on rumors about the company, but it is speculated that the name change will come sometime next week.
Facebook owns a few apps and they include Facebook, Instagram, Facebook Messanger and Whatsapp. The company has a conference coming up on October 28, and it is expected that the name and changes will be unveiled by then at the latest.
In July, he told The Verge that, over the next several years, “we will effectively transition from people seeing us as primarily being a social media company to being a metaverse company.”
Here are 3 ideas that have circulated being a new name for Facebook:
Horizon - Although it is just a rumor, AT BEST, the name 'Horizon', has come up in conversation when talking about the new name for Facebook and the company in general. As Clay Moden pointed out yesterday during Clay and Company, it just seems too close, to 'Verizon', doesn't it?
Opuscule - It is another word for 'book'. Perhaps, they just keep it a simple change with some connection to 'Facebook'.
Metaverse - Maybe Zuckerberg already hinted to everyone what the company name will change to? He said he wants to be a metaverse company, becoming more broader than just a social media company. Facebook is working on a new product, AR glasses.
