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 I saw a post on the /r/gamedev subreddit about something similar. A game studio called Metawe that got their Facebook page taken down for "impersonation" (apparently they've had the name trademarked since 2017)
