Facebook as a company includes many other services such as WhatsApp and Instagram. But the company has always been called Facebook, after its main social network application.
However, this may soon be changing. It is unknown what Facebook may change its company name to yet, but CEO Mark Zuckerberg may make an announcement at the annual Connect conference later this month (October 28th 2021).
The reason behind the move is so the company can focus on building the metaverse, something Facebook is increasingly interested in. By doing so the company can shift public attention away from the Facebook brand and focus on building the metaverse without the two mixing together.
After a rebrand it would appear that the service ‘Facebook’ will just appear as one of the many services the company offers.
