On Friday’s close, Facebook shares rose 2.1% to $323.57. Facebook (323.57, 6.65, 2.10%) just announced on Thursday (October 28) that it will change the company name to “Meta” to welcome the era of virtual reality with a new look.
Zuckerberg said in a speech at the Facebook Connect conference on Thursday, “The metaverse is the next frontier. From now on, we will put the metaverse first, not Facebook first.” Facebook hopes to make the future. Betting on the new computing platform “Meta Universe” is the clearest signal. The concept of meta universe originated from the imagination of science fiction writers. In Facebook’s view, whether talking with colleagues in a conference room or hanging out with friends in distant parts of the world, people will gather and communicate by entering a virtual environment.
