After the name change, Facebook itself may become one of the many products of a parent company, and the parent company of Meta Universe will be responsible for the management of Instagram, WhatsApp, Oculus and other departments.

What are you hiding after making a new look?

Changed face, didn’t change lining?

In 2004, Xiaozha was still a computer major at Harvard University and founded Facebook with three classmates .

At first it was not called Facebook, it was Thefacebook. This website was created to allow students to get to know each other better here.

In the past 20 years of development, Facebook has become the most popular social network in the world, and it has also become a household name.

So why did Facebook suddenly decide to change its name?

Focusing on creating a “meta universe” is one of the reasons, and also trying to cover up the main problems behind it.

Facing the pressure of public opinion and the review of Congress… The reputation of this social giant has gradually been damaged, and it has gone downhill in the field of social media.

Take the recent incident as an example. Former Facebook employee Frances Haugen frankly announced more of the company’s internal operating mechanism, which is to use the “enhanced hate speech algorithm” for profit.

Facebook manipulates the black box of algorithms. Haugen said that the riots in the US Congress on January 6 this year are inseparable from the platform’s indulgent news and speech dissemination.

For a long time, Facebook has shown that it is committed to combating hate speech and has made great efforts.

And yesterday, Facebook paid 14.25 million US dollars to settle the US employment discrimination lawsuit.

In December last year, the US Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against Facebook for discriminating against US employees. Because it favors H-1B visa workers and other temporary visa holders, rather than American workers.

A new name may give the company a brand new look, but “renaming” is not “renaming.”

Facebook rebranding expert Jim Heininger said, “For Facebook, the most effective way to deal with the recent challenge of brand damage is to take corrective measures, rather than trying to change the name or reset the new brand structure.”

Five years of All in Metaverse, I worked hard!

Not long ago, Facebook launched “Ego 4D”, opening the door to “Meta Universe”.

Build the “meta universe” into a “new universe that understands the world from a first-person perspective.”

“Ego 4D” collected videos taken by 855 participants and integrated them into a data set. It also provides 3D scanning stereograms, audio, wearable cameras and other data forms to build a smarter and more interactive “meta universe”.

On October 8 this year, Facebook announced an investment of 50 million US dollars to develop the “Meta Universe” platform.

He built the metaverse into “a virtual space that allows users to create and explore with others who are not in the same physical space.” And emphasized the importance of “digital tokens” and “cryptocurrencies”.

With so many “meta universe” jobs, why does Facebook do this?

Not long ago, Zuckerberg told his story in detail in an interview.

“Meta Universe” is currently a continuation of the Internet that spans many companies and even the entire technology industry. When it comes to Meta Universe, many people think of VR.

But Facebook’s “Meta Universe” does not only involve VR. In addition to VR and AR, it also includes PCs, mobile devices and game consoles.

To be specific, the “meta universe” covers elements such as games, 2D or 3D, such as 3D concerts.

In “Meta Universe”, what VR and AR can do is to help people experience a sense of presence. Even if they are in different places millions of miles apart, they are actually in the same room.

“You can sit on my sofa, and I can sit on your sofa.”

It is worth mentioning that CEO Zuckerberg has been thinking about the “meta universe” since he learned to learn programming. Although he did not have enough mathematical knowledge to support at the time, he always held a notebook at hand, and wrote code and Various ideas.

When the founder of Facebook, he wanted to create a particular feeling of the Internet, so that people can place in them, sent to different parts of the world, and a friend’s house to stay with people.

People should not only navigate through application software. If they can shape the next generation of computer platforms and experiences in the field of VR and AR, it is definitely the “Holy Grail” in the world of social networking.

Although VR headsets are clumsy, Facebook is also developing a new version.

Technology is developing. For example, Quest 2 is currently very popular in the gaming field. Many other things about work and productivity, as well as experiences that have never been imagined before, have been realized.

Take fitness for example. Applications like Super Natural and Fit XR. You can think of it as a Peloton, but not a bicycle or a treadmill, but your VR helmet, in which you can basically go to class, boxing or dancing.

If these materials are stuffed into VR glasses (if the thickness of the glasses is only 5 mm), there are computer chips, network chips, holographic waveguides, devices for sensing and mapping the world, batteries and speakers, all these things, as long as Just fit in these glasses.

This is what Facebook will achieve in the future.

“Meta universe” needs to carry more things than social networks. It is not just a network where you spend 20 or 30 minutes browsing news every day. Chances are, it will cost you more than 8 hours in it.

Not only text or voice communication, you are also moving in this space.

“Meta universe” is an office or a more three-dimensional performance space.

In fact, Zuckerberg liked to participate in baseball games when he was very young, not because he was born a baseball player, but because it was one of the few sports activities in town.

His idea is rather unique. While participating in a baseball game, he is always thinking “Is there a kid in town who is interested in computers?”

The luckiest thing, that kid is himself.

Netizen: Change to Noface?

“Change to Noface?”

Regardless of the name, a new name is the smallest problem for Facebook.

Facebook needs to do some substantive work before users and the public may be willing to support the rebranding.

Netizens hopes Road, “Facebook intends to change the name of the company, by repositioning the brand name to reflect the strategic determination known way. Appears to be a bent.

I was engaged in AI before, and Chatbot was also very much fanfare. Later, there was no news. I don’t know if I can go all the way this time. If there is a feasible plan to produce, it may have a huge change in the way of information carrying and transmission of human society. “
