A German health start-up M-sense Migräne has called out Facebook for mimicking their logo after rebranding to Meta. Just after Facebook announced their rebrand, M-sense Migräne said that they were honoured that the social media giant felt inspired by their app adding that they hope they will get inspired by their data privacy procedures too.
“We are very honoured that Facebook felt inspired by the logo of our migraine app – maybe they’ll get inspired by our data privacy procedures as well,” M-sense said.However, the company did not indicate they would press any lawsuit charges against Facebook.
Facebook’s rebranding effort has been linked to a series of reputation crises such as privacy and safety concerns that have rocked Facebook recently and in the past.
However, Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg said during the rebranding launch on Thursday that the name change was done to reflect on its work investing in the Metaverse.
“The existing brand could not possibly represent everything that we’re doing today, let alone in the future”, and needed to change.
“Over time, I hope that we are seen as a metaverse company and I want to anchor our work and our identity on what we’re building towards,” he stated.
According to Zuckerberg, the metaverse will be an immersive internet that will allow users to be active participants. “The next platform will be even more immersive. An embodied internet where you’re in the experience, not just looking at it. We call this the metaverse, and it will touch every product we build,” he said.
