Mark Zuckerberg Announces Facebook’s Name Change to Faceplant, Aiming to Reflect Users’ Reaction to Recent Updates

Last updated on March 6, 2024

The social media behemoth known, until this morning, as Facebook, has officially rebranded itself as “Faceplant.” The decision marks a startling admission that after scandals, controversies, and cringe-inducing “Metaverse” demonstrations, the company has somehow become synonymous with digital disaster.

“We recognize how people feel about our platform,” Zuckerberg said with forced cheer during the press conference. “Honesty is the best policy, and, well, Faceplant sums up the public sentiment quite nicely. Let’s embrace the brutal truth!”

Tech analysts are doing a collective double-take. “It’s like watching a car crash in slow motion,” mused Kara Stentorian, a veteran tech journalist. “Normally, companies avoid names that evoke plummeting or unintended physical comedy. Are they hoping for an ironic revival? Trying to own the narrative before they’re inevitably mocked as ‘Zuckerberg Zingerberg Facepalm Inc.?'”

Faceplant’s own users, long a reliably disgruntled bunch, have responded with predictable gusto. Comments range from unprintable meme-laden rants to weary sighs of resignation. A top-voted post simply reads, “Fair,” accompanied by a GIF of a person shrugging while a dumpster fire blazes merrily behind them.

Amidst the derision, some marketing experts see a perverse genius in the move. “It’s the ultimate flex,” argues branding whiz Sven Instaglow. “They know they’re the digital punching bag, and by branding themselves as such, they control the joke. There’s something weirdly admirable about that level of ‘who cares?’ defiance.”

Whether this rebrand is a stroke of warped genius or a final descent into self-parody remains to be seen. Your aunt’s politically-charged rants and photos of her cat sunbathing will now officially be brought to you by Faceplant. Perhaps it’s time to dust off that old MySpace account after all.
