There’s nothing like a good meme zeitgeist; an event or person that just becomes the subject of endless memes as the internet bands together for some hearty laughs. That’s exactly what happened this week when Facebook- erm, sorry, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that the company known as Facebook would be changing its name to Meta. The absolute memeability of everything Zuckerberg does, combined with the internet’s shared disdain for Facebook gave way to some incredible reactions to yesterday’s news.
