You might have missed it only if you were somewhere in the Amazon forest, Facebook the company changed its logo.
Facebook, is now FACEBOOK. The logo change was done with a purpose to separate Facebook the company from other products like Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook the social Media app. Facebook is trying to tell, pretty explicitly, who owns these apps.
In a statement, Facebook revealed that the “new branding was designed for clarity, and uses custom typography and capitalization to create a visual distinction between the company and app.”
The logo was designed by none other than Mark Zuckerburg himself, and he is facing some serious criticism for it. Twitter is coming all together to call it out. Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, also mocked this new logo of Facebook. It was not the first time in the last few days that Facebook was getting called out by Jack Dorsey. He took a dig at Mark Zuckerburg when Twitter made an announcement about banning all kinds of paid political advertisements from the micro-blogging site.

Just as Jack tweeted, the whole twitter fraternity got together and called out Facebook’s new corporate logo, calling it bland, uninspiring and boring; leading to plenty of goofs all around the internet.
The most users of Instagram and Facebook which are the Gen-Z, say that the new logo of Facebook is just like what SHOUTING is in internet culture. The All-caps is getting a total downvote.
Will Facebook’s new logo serves the purpose it was designed for? Only time can tell that. So let’s wait and see how this logo is going to help Facebook distinguish between Facebook the company and the apps it owns.
