Meta Thoughts On Meta, Facebook And The Metaverse

Posted by

Your digital media catch-up is right here.

Every Tuesday – for just a few minutes – I join Heather Backman (my old buddy from her days on CHOM FM) on the air at Jack 103 (Rogers Sports & Media) to give a quick blast about the current state of technology, media and Internet culture. We’re calling the segment Tech Tuesday (and we do it in just a few minutes).

What is Tech Tuesday?

If you ever find yourself wondering… What, exactly, is the point of TikTok? How can I make myself look better on a Zoom? Reddit? What’s that about? How do I help my kids be safer online? Who’s the latest creator and streamer that I should be checking out?

You are not alone.

This is what Heather Backman and I discussed this morning over on Jack 103 FM for a couple of minutes:

How Facebook is already owning the MetaverseQuartz.

Let’s discuss Meta… the new name for Facebook… or is it? This is more like Google creating the name, Alphabet, as the holding company for Google, YouTube, FitBit, Waze, etc… Meta will be the public/corporate name, but Facebook as we know it isn’t going anywhere. So… what is this metaverse that Mark Zuckerberg is talking about? Why do so many people hate the name Meta? Is Facebook the company that we want building what will be our future internet? What does this mean for Oculus? Let’s break it all down…

Will you be a part of metaverse?

App of the week: ArriveCAN. If you plan on traveling any time soon back into Canada, make sure you have your ArriveCAN app (and do the work before your plane lands… trust me…).

Once the segment goes live on Jack 103, I will post it here for you to listen in, learn, share and engage….
