A Few Meta Quips

  1. I call things that I can’t put any name to as “meta”. I already have too many posts that are categorised as #meta. They have nothing to do with Facebook.

  2. Here’s how Meta is defined – all so apt for what Facebook is going for in varying degree.

  • showing or suggesting an explicit awareness of itself or oneself as a member of its category” - Lol! A good joke

  • cleverly self-referential” - a lot less clever, a lot more self-referential

  • concerning or providing information about members of its own category” - Information-shinformation, bruhh!

  1. So, what is it. Facebook has gone Meta? Meta has engulfed Facebook? Or Facebook is Meta now?

  2. The new name for Facebook is as vague as the future they plan with it.
