Has there ever been a more insignificant change in a company’s history? Earlier this week Facebook CEO and founder, Mark Zuckerberg, announced his company would be changing its name to Meta in an effort to rebrand the organization as one that “builds technology to connect people.” But really? Meta? Could you have picked a more pretentious name, Mark?
It’s obvious to anyone who’s been paying the slightest attention to any media outlet in the last couple of years that the Facebook brand has been under some fire, especially with the amount of censorship controversy currently going on in the social media world. But rather than holding off on banning accounts left and right, the Zuck decided it would be a good idea to rename his company in the hopes that people would forget it’s the same org that’s been silencing even the most toned down posts you could think of.
Why Zuckerberg decided to name his company after NBA legend, Meta World Peace, is beyond me. I guess he’s just a massive Lakers fan or something. Regardless, does it really even matter that they’ve changed their name? Do you give a shit? Cause I don’t. I just think it’s funny that they thought Meta was better than any of the other millions of possible choices out there. But hey, go you, Mark Zuckerberg!
