Facebook’s new logo widely panned by the internet
Facebook has unveiled a new logo that is meant to symbolise more than the original social network that kicked off its success.
While Facebook is most synonymous with its social media platform, it now controls the likes of Instagram, WhatsApp, Oculus, and other virtual reality and digital currency operations.
The move aims to highlight the Facebook ‘brand’. Too bad the internet hates it.
"Today, we're updating our company branding to be clearer about the products that come from Facebook," said Facebook’s chief marketing officer Antonio Lucio.
"Today, we're updating our company branding to be clearer about the products that come from Facebook," said Lucio.
"We're introducing a new company logo and further distinguishing the Facebook company from the Facebook app, which will keep its own branding."
According to Lucio, the new logo "is a way to better communicate our ownership structure to the people and businesses who use our services to connect."
The move comes as Facebook is under increased scrutiny from regulators around the world about its content practices.
However, the new logo has been widely panned by the internet, who believe the new logo is a weak attempt at rebranding.
