That didn't seem to stop Facebook from publicly announcing the name change and branding, quite the Zuck move.
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 I mean where did you come across that link. If it was a place with discussion I would like to see the discussion.
@faun me too, it's been awhile since I've posted it and I'm not on my PC. There might be some discussion on this by now.
