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.
