Facebook is Not the Right Company to Coin the 'Metaverse'
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg announced the company’s name change to Meta in October. The company wants to create a virtual reality version of our world, where we can go shopping, go to a concert, or watch a movie with friends. The concept is not new.
