Facebook got a new logo on Wednesday. The old one on the left in the image above has been replaced by the one on the right. Can you spot the difference? Clue: I’m posting this on Glossophilia …
Check back here tomorrow for the answer if you can’t see it. (And no spoilers in the comments section please!)
Update: the biggest difference is that the new logo has a single-deck “a”. Other more subtle changes are the rounder “o”s and “e”, a slightly longer and more traditional stem to the “b”, and different kerning.
