As announced earlier, Facebook has finally revealed its new name!

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced on Thursday at the company’s Connect event that the company’s new name will be Meta.

“We are a company that builds technology to connect,” Zuckerberg said. “Together, we can finally put people at the center of our technology. And together, we can unlock a massively bigger creator economy.”

“To reflect who we are and what we hope to build,” he added. He said the name Facebook doesn’t fully encompass everything the company does now and is still closely linked to one product.

“But over time, I hope we are seen as a metaverse company.”

As being reported, Zuckerberg is also running a handle titled Meta on Twitter.

The tweets of @meta  are protected as of this writing, while the mentioned weblink meta.com, which now redirects to a welcome page on Facebook that outlines the changes.

The account created in November 2010, in its description states, “Meta is helping build a future where people have more ways to play and connect in the metaverse. Welcome to the next chapter of social connection.”
