A handful of ideas floating around the internet in response to allegations that Facebook is planning to rebrand with a new group name. Naturally, the corporation refused to comment on rumors or speculation, but that didn’t bother the name “Twitterati.”

The discussion ranged from bizarre to ridiculous to the sensible. One of the more sober trending proposals was “meta,” which alludes to Facebook’s rumored desire to choose a moniker that emphasizes the metaverse.

On the wilder side, Twitter user Dave Pell drew a comparison with musician Kanye West who recently changed his name to “Ye”.

“It would be fantastic if Facebook changed its name in the same way Kanye did,” he said.

“Boomerville,” Marco proposed, referring to the post-World War II generation of people known as “baby boomers.”


A report on the Verge tech website states that a new corporation would serve as a parent for all of the company’s brands, including Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp, and would emphasize virtual and augmented reality. According to the source, an announcement is likely next week.

On the other hand, many of the proposals reflected public concern about the company’s handling of user safety and hate speech. Internal documents leaked by a whistleblower became the basis for a U.S. Senate hearing last week.

Others questioned if a name change would be enough to shield the corporation from the rising legal and regulatory scrutiny that has soiled its image.

“It’ll be the Barbra Streisand effect,” said Thomas van der Hoven, a 20-year-old Glasgow student, alluding to the phenomenon in which an attempt to conceal something accidentally boosts general interest in it.

“So they’re going to try to change it, which will only draw attention to the fact that they’re changing it. Why are they making this change? “He added. “So it’ll probably come back to bite them at some point.”
