FaceBook is changing it's name

Posted 28 October 2021 - 09:35 PM

Quote

Facebook changed its corporate name to Meta on Thursday, moving aggressively to distance itself from a social-media business embroiled in crisis and rebrand itself as a forward-looking creator of a new digital world known as the "metaverse"


What do you think? Is FaceBook "too far gone"? Unable to appeal to the youth? Changing their name to dodge current issues?

I have not been on FaceBook for the past few months, & I'm curious what changes they hope to bring with the name : metaverse.

Reminder this is just the parent company. Much like Google's parent company changed from Google to Alphabet. Facebook the social media platform will still be called Facebook.

Fresh lipstick on the same pig isn't going to change much.

It's still the "mos eisley" of the internet.

I'm just glad that they're taking steps to make the whole notion of "meta" uncool. Long overdue.

First time I've ever thought "well done, Facebook".
