"The new name is Thursday" - Here is how the revolutionary Facebook is changing

Facebook's move to change its name made headlines in the world media last week. What is the purpose of changing the name? Is it to get rid of the charges against them? Criminals hide by changing their names and addresses. Is it really necessary to change the name of the face book, which has three billion users worldwide?

However, some international media outlets have described this as a ploy. Some tricks must be taken to keep a business afloat. The decision to change the name rests with its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg. The name change will be revealed at Facebook's annual 'Connect' conference on Thursday the 28th, reports say. Meanwhile, according to a report by the Verge blog, citing one anonymous source, Facebook may change its name. 

Google did a similar thing in 2015, changing its name to GOOGL and making it a Google subsidiary. This is to highlight that the company is more than just a search engine. - But the Google brand is still very strong. There is no argument about that. According to Werge, Facebook will be re-branded to make it a digital reality that goes beyond social media. The new name is so secretive that even the company's senior executives do not know what it is. Zuckerberg's company owns Instagram and WhatsApp in addition to its flagship social media network. Is Facebook really changing its name because of 37-year-old Francis Hogan? 

Earlier this month, Francis Hogan, Facebook's production manager, testified before a U.S. Senate subcommittee that the company was aware that hate and misinformation were being spread through the face book, but failed to prevent it. Facebook has been compared to a tobacco company, criticizing the heads of its former company for choosing profit over mental health. She emphasized that Facebook's social networking sites and phone applications were harmful to children and weakened democracy. The U.S. media also reported that Hogan had filed an anonymous complaint seeking enforcement of federal law against Facebook's research that promotes hatred and misinformation and isolates people. She also gave the Wall Street Journal a stack of internal documents on Facebook, and the social media leader has been severely embarrassed by the reports. She now lives in Puerto Rico.

 "I'm very lucky to be living in Puerto Rico because no one recognizes me here." She told the British Observer. Commenting on the revelations, Mark said that recent media coverage had created a false image of his company. Will this name change to cover it? With the revelation of Francis Hogan, the Facebook crash that happened last October 05th is special. The company, which crashed around the world that day, restored the company's Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger social media after about six hours. After the crash, Mark Zuckerberg took to Facebook to apologize to his users for the inconvenience caused by the crash. On that day, around 6 pm local time last night, their other social media including Facebook crashed all over the world. 

Foreign media reported that this was due to a breakdown in the flow of data between the company's data centers, according to an official Facebook blog post. They point out that this is due to a change in the layout of the routers that exchange data between the company's data centers and networks. In 2019, Facebook also suffered a social media crash that lasted 24 hours. Facebook lost about $ 600 million as a result of the breakdown of its social media networks. That's because Facebook shares fell about 5% in a matter of hours. Zuckerberg's assets fell to $ 121.6 billion, dropping to 5th on the Bloomberg Billionaire Index. Bill Gates came up as Mark went down. Zuckerberg's net worth was $ 192 billion in mid-September, according to the Bloomberg Index. The DownDetector website, which conducted the observations, said that this was the biggest social media crash they had ever experienced. Social media crashes on such a scale and in the long run are a rare occurrence. But the real crisis was created by Francis Hogan. That's not what Mark says.

 The results of a study conducted by the United States 'Pediatrics Expert' on social networking sites, including Facebook, were published in the journal Pediatrics. It shows teenagers surfing their favorite social network ten or more times a day. Nowadays a computer is not essential to access the internet. Most modern phones have internet access which makes internet access easier. They say there are positive as well as negative social influences on this trend. Doctors have pointed out that frequent visitors to social networking sites are at risk of developing a mental illness called 'Facebook Depression'. This should be recognized as a dangerous social impact of overuse of social networking sites, including Facebook. 

Some time ago, school children asked their parents to buy them a bicycle after passing the exams. But now children are telling their parents that they need a laptop or a smartphone. Is this the miracle of time? There is no point in blaming Mark for everything. Parents also need to be more considerate of their children. We must not forget about the scams that take place through the face book as well as the social good.

 Last March, the BBC uncovered a scam involving the sale of Brazil's forest resource, the Amazon rainforest, on Facebook. It also includes forest reserves, national parks and aboriginal land. Some of the slots in the ads posted on Facebook are as big as a thousand football fields. Facebook said it was ready to work with Brazilian authorities on the matter, but could not take any independent action to stop the trade. In November 2013, a woman in Padukka committed suicide as a result of an affair on Facebook.

 By hanging that neck. Authorities say it was the first suicide in Sri Lanka on Facebook. The woman, who is also the mother of a young daughter, had committed suicide after having an affair with a young man whom she had identified through Facebook, police said. In 2014, it was reported that as many as two million Sri Lankans use the social media network Facebook. But today it has multiplied. Chatura Pamunuwa
