In October of 2021, Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook will rebrand itself as “Meta.” Facebook has faced many scandals and challenges regarding information collecting and privacy which have changed the way that individuals look at their social media usage. With the growing prevalence of social media users around the world, including in the Asia-Pacific region, this change may come with new challenges regarding how it is used for individuals, content creators, and governments. In this committee, delegates will discuss the change of the corporation, and what it means for other platforms that have become prevalent in the Asia-Pacific region. How will this change affect individuals, their data, and their daily lives?
