Tech Talk: Facebook unveils new logo that represents all its other brands

Following promises of more transparency, Facebook has a colourful logo that nods to how change is underway at the company and its subsidiaries.


On Monday, the company announced a new logo for Facebook Inc. to distinguish the corporate parent from its apps, including its popular social media platform.

According to CNN, the logo, which features the word Facebook (FB) in all capital letters in a new font, alternates between blue, green and hues of purple, red and orange. All colours that represent its other brands. (Blue for Facebook, green for WhatsApp and purple, red and orange for Instagram.)

The move highlights its effort to be more clear with consumers about the apps it owns. A recent survey by nonpartisan think tank Pew found that only 29% of Americans correctly answered that Instagram and WhatsApp are owned by Facebook.

The company plans to use the new logo on products and marketing materials in the weeks ahead. In June, the company started adding the words “from Facebook” across all its apps. Soon, that language will feature the new logo, too.

Earlier this year, the company laid out plans to integrate its messaging platforms, WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger, and make privacy a bigger focus. This includes encrypting communications and making it possible for users to send messages to their contacts using any of its services and SMS. The move could effectively cement Facebook’s dominance over the messaging market for years to come.

The efforts come at a time when Facebook and other tech companies are facing heightened antitrust scrutiny. In September, The Sauce reported on the latest privacy lapse by the social media giant whereby phone numbers linked to more than 400 million Facebook accounts were listed online.
