Ground Report | New Delhi: What is Meta Versus; Like other troubled companies in the past, Facebook has changed its name and logo and Facebook Inc. will now be called Meta Platforms Inc. or ‘Meta’ for short. This is a step towards the dream of CEO Mark Zuckerberg, called ‘Meta Versus’.
But it is important to clarify that the meta company’s social network will still be called Facebook. In addition, its current chief executive and senior leadership, its corporate structure and the crisis it faces will remain the same. However, critics accuse the company of doing all this to divert attention from leaked Facebook papers.

The leaked documents have plunged the company into the biggest crisis since Mark Zuckerberg was housed in a Harvard hostel 17 years ago. Documents show that Facebook preferred to make a profit through its platform rather than rid the world of hatred, political controversy, and misinformation.
What is Meta Versus
Metaverse is a very popular word in the technology industry these days, the popularity of which can be gauged from the fact that one of the most popular platforms on the Internet (Facebook) has adopted itself as a sign of adopting this idea of the future. Rebranded
The word metaverse was first used by science fiction writer Neil Stephenson in his 1992 novel Snow Crash. Zuckerberg and his team are not the only tech visionaries working on this technology of the future.
Metaverse is actually a mix of virtual reality and other technologies. Other people who have been thinking about this technology for a long time are worried that Facebook will be able to gain more access to users’ personal information with the help of this technology.
The company has already been accused of failing to prevent the spread of dangerous and misleading information and other online losses, which have exacerbated real-world problems.
What is Metaverse?
Think of it as the Internet is alive, at least in 3D. Zuckerberg described it as a “virtual environment” in which you can go in and experience, instead of just looking at the screen.
It’s basically a world of endless, interconnected virtual communities where people can meet, work and play using virtual reality headsets, augmented reality glasses, smartphone apps, or other devices. Other aspects of online life, such as shopping and social media, will also be included, according to Victoria Petrock, an analyst at Emerging Technologies.

She says: ‘This is the next evolution of communication, where all those things start to come together in a smooth, homogeneous (duplicate gangster) universe, so you’re going to live your virtual life the way you want. Live your physical life.
What can be done?
These include attending virtual concerts, online trips, viewing or creating artwork, and trying out or buying digital clothing. Working from home can be a game-changer during the Metavers Corona epidemic.
Now, instead of watching co-workers on the video call grid, you can join them in the virtual office. Facebook has launched meeting software for companies called Horizon Workrooms to use with its Oculus VR headset, although its initial experience was not very good.
This headset costs 300 or more. Because it is so expensive, most people are far from the most advanced Metavers experience. In addition, those who can afford it will be able to enter the virtual world created by different companies through their avatars.
Tech companies still have to find a way to connect their online platforms to another platform. Petrok said that for this, rival technology platforms will have to set some standards so that the people of Facebook Metaverse and the people of Microsoft Metaverse will not be cut off.
