Facebook is changing its company name to Meta as it confronts wide-ranging scrutiny of the real-world harms from its various platforms after a whistleblower leaked hundreds of internal documents.
Facebook will change its corporate name to Meta, with Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp remaining under the Meta umbrella. With his company under fire for a host of issues, Mark Zuckerberg said the change was part of a bet on the “metaverse.”
Facebook announces a new corporate name, part of a rebranding and shift in strategy after intense criticism of the social-media platform.
What people are saying?
Rad_bot This is more due to facebook wanting to branch out and dominate more market areas. People would be hesitant to buy groceries/medicine/houses from facebook but now that it’s “meta” it’s a different story, many normies won’t even know that meta is same as FB.
Franz Biberkopf Excellent choice, as Mark is definitely not ‘Meta’. He’s run by something bigger than himself. To relax, he listens to old Netanyahu phone calls. He needs to be re-charged frequently (USB-C, not included). He must not stop. He will not stop. The mission hasn’t been completed yet.
