Facebook Changed Its Name, And All Is Forgiven, Right?

Good news!

Facebook has rebranded to ‘Meta’, in a bid to signal its future focus on the metaverse — but mostly with desperate hopes of starting anew, in regards to those pesky privacy issues and stoking and facilitating Russian election interference, and data harvesting, and experimenting in people’s mental health, and creating products designed to damage teenagers and being aware of this fact, and hiding documents and studies that prove harm, like the cigarette peddlers of old, and using addiction to make money, and harvesting fear and division around the world. And, and and.

Welcome to Meta.

Phew!

“The metaverse is the next frontier,” Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg said. “From now on, we’re going to be metaverse-first, not Facebook-first.”

Of course, Facebook the platform will still be Facebook, just as Instagram will remain Instagram, WhatsApp will remain WhatsApp, and the slew of legal suits will remain in court, much as Zuck wishes he could just wipe his hands clean of the whole lot.

Still, there’s a new logo, which looks a lot like the Born Again Christian fish, and also the infinity symbol, and also a child’s slot car racing track.

The company will trade under the ticker MVRS, from December 1.

“Right now, our brand is so tightly linked with one product that can’t possibly represent everything we’re doing today,” Zuckerberg said, “let alone in the future.”
