Meta: no longer even trying to hide the fact that we’re tracking your every move and selling the info to other companies.

So, Facebook. You know Facebook, right? That hella huge social media platform with the blue thumbs up and everything? The company behind Facebook, which is also called Facebook, has announced that it will be rebranding itself as “Meta”.

In the announcement, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg explained that Facebook has two major segments: one that’s all about their family of apps, and one that’s all about work on future platforms. So, to encompass everything that Facebook does (which currently includes the likes of Instagram, WhatsApp, Oculus and a bunch more), it introduced a new identity as Meta.

Now, considering all of the privacy issues, its business model, how it can’t moderate itself, among others, people have started speaking out about this name change in the form of memes.

Besides it just being loads of fun, it has also become a social commentary of how nobody believes that this will change anything, as the re-branding equates to slapping a band aid on a flesh wound, and people will quite likely still call it Facebook.

I heard it's the company that's changing but the website will still be Facebook unless that's changed since yesterday?

Speaking of memes, there are tons of them, starting with people who vandalized the logo to include a phallic representation of something that shall not be mentioned explicitly in this sentence to using “Meta” puns (like “Metaphor” and “Never Meta Girl”) to straight up visual memes.

The latter includes memes such as Flex Tape Slap, Grandpa Simpson “Back In My Day”, “How Do You Do, Fellow Kids?” memes featuring Steve Buscemi, and a whole bunch of other visuals fit for Facebook’s current situation.

Come on guys, they're just trying to be more open. Meta as in "we're totally gonna sell your metadata".

Nah. Post a picture of the Stooges, and you’d be closer to nailing it.
