"From now on, we're going to be the metaverse first. Not Facebook first", Zuckerberg said in his keynote. The company called the metaverse, "a place where we'll play and connect in 3D. Welcome to the next chapter of social connection". Adding that the names of the apps Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, and WhatsApp will remain the same.

In explaining the rebrand, Zuckerberg said the name "Facebook" just doesn't encompass "everything we do" anymore. In addition to its primary social network, which now includes Instagram, Messenger, its Quest VR headset, its Horizon VR platform, and more.
