Is Meta lipstick on the Facebook pig and what is The Metaverse anyway? - MAF279

This week let's talk about the rebrand of Facebook and whether it's just lipstick on a pig.

And what exactly is The Metaverse?

It's just me and the mic and this is episode 279 of the Marketing and Finance Podcast.

We chat about:

• Facebook rebrands its holding company to Meta

• How Meta is a House of Brands

• Will Meta allow Facebook to shake off its tarnished reputation?

• What is The Metaverse and why is it so high profile with marketers and technical people?

• Does the Metaverse meets genuine customer needs or is it a solution looking for a problem?
