By changing its name and unveiling its long-term vision, Facebook (now called Meta) was probably looking to redeem itself in public opinion. Unfortunately, this effort seems to have been a real failure, as Mark Zuckerberg’s company has just been voted Worst Company of the Year.
This title, he calls it Yahoo! Finance, which, like every year, nominates the best student, but also ass hat. We can not say that this is a big surprise, because the trust of the social network users is being lost.
Yahoo! META Names Fiscal Year’s Worst Company

While some saw the meta rebranding as a cynical attempt to change the conversation, following Don Draper’s advice in Scandal, others were excited about the potential of a new direction that could be a) interesting and b) aging. different from the social media model. A significant amount of the responses focused on executives and founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
