The company said the name would better "encompass" what they stand for and what the company does, as it expans its goals beyond the world of social media and into projects like VR.

The change will not apply to the individual platforms owned by the company, such as Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp, just the umbrella company.

The move follows a series of negative stories about Facebook, and wider discussion about the impact of the platform on a variety of issues such as public health and wider discourse.
