Meta is a technology company that was formerly known as Facebook, Inc. It was founded by Mark Zuckerberg in 2004, and initially focused on building a social networking platform that would allow people to connect and share information online. Today, Meta has evolved into a much larger organization with a wide range of products and services.

Meta’s flagship product is Facebook, the world’s largest social networking platform, which has more than 2 billion monthly active users. In addition to Facebook, Meta also owns other popular social media platforms such as Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger.

Meta has expanded its offerings beyond social media to include other areas such as virtual and augmented reality. The company’s Oculus division produces VR headsets, while Spark AR provides a platform for creating and sharing AR experiences on Facebook and Instagram.

Meta also offers advertising and marketing solutions to businesses through its Facebook Ads platform, which allows businesses to target specific audiences and track the performance of their ads.

In addition to its consumer-facing products and services, Meta has also invested heavily in artificial intelligence (AI), with the goal of using AI to enhance its offerings and provide new capabilities to users. Meta’s AI research lab, FAIR (Facebook AI Research), has made significant contributions to the field of AI, including developing advanced natural language processing and image recognition technologies.
