Facebook changes name – level 1

04-11-2021 07:00

The company Facebook changes its name. The new name will be Meta. The company wants to build the Metaverse. The Metaverse is a place in virtual reality. A computer makes it. People can meet there.

Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg says that the main idea is still the same. The idea is to bring people together but in virtual reality.

Recently, Facebook has many problems. Secret documents say that some Facebook users have problems with their mind. The company also deletes some things. Users are angry.

Some people say that Facebook changes its name because of these problems. Some people do not like Facebook anymore. Facebook can change again when the name changes.

Difficult words: meta (the idea that you can think about your thoughts), virtual reality (images and places which look real but a computer makes, them, and a person can take part in them), secret (something what people do not know about).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
