Facebook announced this Thursday that from now on its corporate name is Meta, as part of an image renewal process.

The Mark Zuckerberg-led company said the new name “encompasses” what it does better as it broadens its reach beyond social media into areas such as virtual reality.

The change does not apply to their individual platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, only to the parent company of which they are a part.

The decision comes after a series of negative news about Facebook, based on documents leaked by former employee Frances Haugen, who accused the company of “putting profit above safety.”
