Mark Zuckerberg, at the Facebook Connect event, announced that the holding company will be called 'Meta.’
In his keynote speech, Zuckerberg mentioned that the metaverse will be a social, 3D virtual space where you can share immersive experiences with other people, even when you can’t be together in person - and do things together you couldn’t do in the physical world.
Zuckerberg also unveiled a new logo and color to accompany its new company brand. The logo is treated in a blue gradient and is designed to be experienced in 3D. Sharing his vision behind donning this new identity, he said, “Over time, I hope that we are seen as a metaverse company, and I want to anchor our work and identity on what we're building toward.”
