Facebook changes name – level 2

04-11-2021 07:00

The company Facebook changed its name to Meta. Facebook´s CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the company´s goal was still the same, and it still wanted to bring people together.

Now the company wanted to focus on virtual reality more and to build the metaverse. The company had many problems recently when some secret documents said that Facebook could badly impact some people´s mental health. Facebook also had problems with its content and false information, which were bad for its reputation.

Some people believe that by changing the name, the company wants to improve its reputation and change the negative feelings which some people have about Facebook. It also shows what the company wants to do in the future.

Difficult words: metaverse (a virtual reality place where people can meet), content (things which are a part of something), reputation (what people think about someone or something).
