Facebook is a social network based in the USA with ownership of several other key brands in the social media space including WhatsApp, Portal and Instagram. Recently it announced a brand change and is becoming “Meta” in order to take advantage of the many opportunities presented by the evolution of technology and our modern ability to harness the power of the internet.
Facebook and Drum Brands
The above list of drum brands have all embraced social media and in particular Facebook, like many of their customers and fans around the world. Facebook has given drum brands an unparalleled way to communicate with its followers, which is why we put this list together to help you find new drum brands to interact with, new products to discover and a rich heritage to immerse yourself in as a drummer.
Not only are drum brands easy to find on Facebook thanks in part to this list (you’re welcome :-D) but the added benefit of following their pages is you will also find like-minded people to have discussions with, ask questions of and help answer queries. It’s a rich world of interaction between customers and drum brands on Facebook and it’s thi s connectivity that drives us towards the next chapter of our story as drummers in a connected world.
What is Meta? It is the next generation of Facebook.
In the founder, Mark Zuckerberg’s own words:
In recent decades, technology has given people the power to connect and express ourselves more naturally. When I started Facebook, we mostly typed text on websites. When we got phones with cameras, the internet became more visual and mobile. As connections got faster, video became a richer way to share experiences. We’ve gone from desktop to web to mobile; from text to photos to video. But this isn’t the end of the line.
The next platform will be even more immersive — an embodied internet where you’re in the experience, not just looking at it. We call this the metaverse, and it will touch every product we build.
The defining quality of the metaverse will be a feeling of presence — like you are right there with another person or in another place. Feeling truly present with another person is the ultimate dream of social technology. That is why we are focused on building this.Zuck, Founder’s Letter, 2021: https://about.fb.com/news/2021/10/founders-letter/
Thanks for reading. We hope you found it useful and entertaining. It’ll be fascinating to see how customers and drum brands continue to connect in this new world and what opportunities we’ll have to interact in ever more immersive ways as drummers, musicians, creatives and communities with the advent of new technologies and advancements in internet connectivity.
