Facebook rebrand is fodder for internet humor
Facebook’s announcement Thursday that the company would henceforth be called Meta unleashed a torrent of hilarity on Twitter from companies, people and even the social media giant itself.
The internet had a good laugh with all the meme and pun-fueled wisecracks.
Despite the jokes, Facebook’s critics were not amused by the name change, which they argued dodges the real issue.
“The name was never the problem,” wrote an activist group calling itself The Real Facebook Oversight Board.
