According to The Verge, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is planning on announcing the company will be changing its name next week during their annual Connect conference. Various reports are saying that Zuckerberg is aiming to make the platform more than social media.
Although the company is looking to change its name, it’s unlikely that the app will undergo a name change. The name change is, what many are calling, an attempt to distance themselves from the negative spotlight it has received over the last few years.
If you were Mark Zuckerberg, what would you rename the company? Would you even rename it, or would you get rid of it entirely?
Most reactions to this news came with more scrutiny of the company and how this company name change won’t erase the negativity it earned over the past few years.
