As FB goes Meta—Parler could be the new Facebook social media app

Facebook is now “history.” The most popular social media platform is reinventing itself. However, Zuckerberg’s Meta could also mean a massive exodus as more users express dissatisfaction over the issue of “free speech,” besetting the company.

The supposedly “free speech” alternative to Facebook and Twitter, Parler is back online after being forced offline. The company was accused of promoting “right-wing” groups in support of former President Trump—in the wake of the January 6 Capitol attack.

Users sought refuge from the perceived conservative censorship of Facebook and Twitter. However, Parler’s reach plummeted after Big Tech deplatformed the app.

Conservatives sought refuge

According to Forbes, while these figures do not represent an entire month, the first ten days of January 2021 saw about 870,000 new users install the Parler app on Apple devices. However, Parler hasn’t regained its momentum.

Parler could be the new Facebook?

With Facebook changing its name to Meta, users are wary of the enormous change. Almost immediately after the new name was announced, some netizens mocked it.

To begin with, the word ‘Meta’ in Hebrew means ‘dead,’ tweeted Dr. Nirit Weiss-Blatt, Ph.D.

CONSERVATIVES IN AMERICA UNDER ATTACK?

Despite the crackdown on users spreading “fake news,” users have barely abandoned their social media platforms. But that could change now that technically, the brand name Facebook is dead.
