CEO Mark Zuckerberg believes that Facebook doesn’t completely suffice the services offered by the largest social media and networking platform available in the market right now.

The news comes in as the company is trying its level best to get back in the game and in the market as the leading social media network provider even though it holds the record of the most number of users through the most number of social media user accounts ever created through any social media network providing platform. The company strives and seems motivated enough to create and establish itself as a ‘metaverse’ company in the near future.

The company is keenly interested to expand its business to be widely known as metaverse creators because of the versatility in the services provided by them in the market through their digital platform instead of being known as a social media network providing platform.

Zuckerberg is sure of his company’s objectives and about their plans related to the future as he claimed in the connect event that the technology they are creating is so effective and highly efficient that it can bring about a change in the lives of its users by bringing about convenience in their lives, hence, making their lives easier.

With over a number of 340 million users, Facebook has been the greatest ever application to be used among people from almost all the countries all across the globe. Ever since the digital market has developed newer social media platforms through applications and websites, Facebook users have become a lot passive and inactive.

As of now despite being the creator of most number user accounts, Facebook has been pushed backward by another leading social media networking platform Instagram. Even though Facebook took over and acquired Instagram long ago, its users remain passive while Instagram became the leading social media networking platform with the most active users.

Facebook, despite its numerous attempts to revive its game through Instagram by linking both the applications and syncing the user accounts, could not get back in the game as the leader and remains hidden behind the curtains led by Instagram.

After the connect event it has been made clear by the CEO that only the parent company’s name will be changed and the names of its subsidiaries and acquired companies Whatsapp and Instagram will remain the same.
