Is this ****ing serious???

News Alert: Facebook changes its company name to Meta


Facebook is changing its company name to Meta as it confronts wide-ranging scrutiny of the real-world harms from its various platforms after a whistleblower leaked hundreds of internal documents.

The change will demote Facebook's namesake service to being just one of the company's subsidiaries, alongside Instagram and WhatsApp, rather than the overarching brand.

A rebranding could be part of an effort to overhaul Facebook's reputation and turn the page following a series of PR nightmares, including misinformation on its platforms, content moderation failures and revelations about the negative effect its products have on some users' mental health.




They think that by changing their name everyone is going to be fooled and forget all the **** they've been accused of? Un-****ing-believable!

Tbh most people are so glazed over by their society not caring whether they live or die this sounds like an overreaction.

I dunno, the right seems to think that Facebook censors too much and the left seems to think they don't censor enough. In my eyes, this would mean that they're right on the money in terms of how they handle content control and censorship.

As for their scandals and misuse of personal data though, I can't defend that. They are delving deep into the VR space and I think they're betting on that being a big financial success but I suppose we'll see. It certainly seems like a smart move to me.

That is some absolute dip**** logic that only works if you're too lazy to have actual standards. I mean Facebook has literally contributed to genocide and actively refrains from stopping conspiracy theories for the sake of upping engagement. If you think that's just right then you're a ****ing moron.

Facebook Ordered To Disclose Evidence In The Myanmar Genocide Case

How Facebook neglected the rest of the world, fueling hate speech and violence in India

Internal Alarm, Public Shrugs: Facebook’s Employees Dissect Its Election Role

And here's a whole big dumb list of articles exploring the Facebook Papers by such leftist rags as the Wall Street Journal and AP, all basically saying that Facebook is trash and Mark Zuckerberg should die alone and in pain.

Here are all the Facebook Papers stories

Next up: Mark Zuckerberg changes his name to Abagail McGillicuddy.

Thanks Bat. My initial hot take of their censorship being a comfortable middle-ground for me may need some revision and nuance injected into it based on this.
