The Capitalist Investor - Episode 98

Mark is joined this week by Luke Lloyd and they dive into why Facebook is deciding to change their name and what it means for the future of the company. Mark Zuckerberg announced that the name change is going to revolve around the “Metaverse”. Mark and Luke discuss where Facebook has been, where they are going, and even some potential names that Facebook will choose.

Facebook was founded upon sketchy values and ideals. Between the Winklevoss Twins suing Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook originating as a “Hot or Not?” college platform ranking the looks of people, the history of Facebook proves to be volatile. Is this name change a PR stunt to distract from the current issues Facebook is facing with data, privacy, and censorship? How does cryptocurrency fit into all of these big tech firms and the future of blockchain technology? Mark and Luke discuss all of this on this on this week’s episode of The Capitalist Investor.
