So if you haven't already heard, Facebook is now called Meta. An interesting twist so head down to the comments and let me know what you think.
But the sarcastic and mischievous one in me couldn't help but have a few little digs 😉:
The rebrands logo is one of the saddest attempts at a logo I have seen in a while, like the love child of Virgin Media and Visual Studio but after it has been told it can't have icecream.
Or maybe the inspiration came from Charlie Brown?
The new name is just going to make conversations fraught with accidental mentions of the evil corporation with a new name and make my conversations with clients horrendous.
Me: "We need to set a meta description"
Client: "Don't worry, I have a meta profile"
Me: "No, we need to set your meta tags"
Client: "It is fine, I know how to tag people".
And now you can't work at FAANG companies anymore, you work at MANGA companies?
I mean, I tagged this post as "meta" originally - how confusing is that going to be?
Or what will now happen to meta.stackexchange.com, is it going to get over-run with confused people looking for help uploading Cat pictures?
Seriously though, what do people think of the new logo, the new name, the cost of such a rebrand and why?
My only theory on the why is that they are that desperate to get Gen Z involved they think a rename is the only way, will it work or will it just alienate their current user base?
Over to you!
