From Facebook to Meta

Paru / Mis à jour le

In the following activities, we learn about Mark Zuckerberg and imagine the back cover of his biography. And since we're talking about applications that are used by young and old people alike, we look at the app design process while keeping in mind the importance of an inclusive design.

Recently, Facebook Inc. announced that it would become Meta. But what are the implications of this transition for users? So far: none. The main purpose of this modification is to separate the name of the application from the name of the company. As you probably know, Instagram and Whatsapp belong to the same company. With the name change, those applications, as well as Facebook, will belong to Meta which allows for a clearer distinction.  

Why Meta?  

The company describes this Metaverse as a « set of virtual spaces where you can create and explore with other people who aren’t in the same physical space as you. »

For now, this change was the source of many articles and discussions in the media but its repercussions on the users are scarce to none. Will changes be apparent in a few months or years? Your guess is as good as mine.

Until then, let’s use this news as a pretext for interesting activities!
