It should be clear that this trademark filing is just for selling their products in the metaverse and other digital environments officially. It will not change anything like rebranding and name change of Facebook to Meta.
A week ago Facebook was going through some very major events from leaking some internal papers and documents to rebranding itself to Meta. Facebook, Now Meta even said that these papers or documents are just showing a false image of the company. The company’s former employee, Frances Haugen alleged that company spreading misinformation and allowed to do that. They ignored their research that shows this app is harmful to teenagers’ mental health.
