Brands reactions towards re-branding of Facebook as 'Meta'
Facebook has changed its corporate name to Meta at a time when the social networking giant is going through a huge PR crisis. The parent company's name has been changed as part of broadening its reach beyond social media into areas like virtual reality (VR), announced CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Thursday.
On the need for the rebrand, Zuckerberg said, “Right now, our brand is so tightly linked to one product that it can’t possibly represent everything that we are doing today, let alone in the future. Over time, I hope that we are seen as a metaverse company, and I want to anchor our work and identity on what we're building toward.”
Other brands have share their opinions about rebranding on social sites lets have a look:
