You think is Facebook trying to just wash their hands as Facebook itself will become part of a bigger conglomerate created by themselves?

If you rebrand cancer as jaundice, it does not become jaundice.

Don’t really see a reason too. Idk if it’s just a way to confuse the boomers or if there is an actual reason in the legal sense.

Yes, legally it chanches a lot of thing, since now there is actually a parent company managing all.

So its just like Alphabet/Google? Dont think that actually changed anything.

Doesn’t it reduce legal risks to the parent company?

Yeah. I wonder how that’ll impact the talks of the hypothetical breakup

Just Alphabet/Google all over again. It’s the first step in becoming an even bigger giant conglomerate. It’s just growth of the corporate cancer.

They’ve likely been laying the groundwork for years, but the timing is certain to meet the expectations of cynics - after all, changing the company name after a scandal is the oldest trick in the book.

This simple rebranding will likely ease a lot of the public pressure on Facebook.

the bigger story here is… will they also ditch the “blue” theme with the arrival of the new logo? You can bet your ass they will.

All there’s left is disguising that really only the brand changed
