The Claim

The Facebook application's new name is  Meta.  

Emerging story

News circulating on social media pages and news outlets that Facebook will change its name to Meta.

Misbar’s Analysis

Misbar’s investigation found the claim misleading. Facebook will change its corporate name to Meta, with Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp remaining under the Meta umbrella.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced Thursday at his company’s Connect event that its new name will be Meta. “We are a company that builds technology to connect,” Zuckerberg said.

The name change, which was announced at the Facebook Connect augmented and virtual reality conference, reflects the company’s growing ambitions beyond social media.
