The #Meta plot thickens! Turns out that #Facebook doesn't actually own the name Meta because it belongs to another company that's currently in stealth mode.

That didn't seem to stop Facebook from publicly announcing the name change and branding, quite the Zuck move. :blobpopcorn:

Meta (the real one) have posted a public letter about this on their front page. I'm linking the Archive copy because the front page will be eventually replaced by an actual website:


@polychrome @rmdes there are thousands of companies called Meta, but this specific one sounds fake to me

@ton @polychrome @rmdes It's only infringement if they are both in the same line of business. It doesn't really look like this company is in any line of business.
