The domain name is listed by "Domain seller" (standard name as long as you don't change it).

Is it an old listing?
Is it an error?

or

Was the rebranding of
Facebook Inc., to Meta Platforms Inc., just a marketing gag?
(I don't think so.)

Maybe @DAN.COM wants to reply.

I don't know.

Another possibility is that the domain name (meta.com (META.COM)) is not / was never owned by Zuckerberg('s companies) and he (they) currently have just a referral agreement with the owner as long the owner doesn't sell it which could mean the listing is genuine (although hard to believe).

It's an absurd theory, I know - but ... can you exclude it?
Do you have any proof that the domain name is owned by Zuckerberg(s company/ies)?

I can't / don't.

All I know is that the domain name ...

- was forwarding to the .org version and that it
- is forwarding to a facebook.com subdomain and that it
- is listed on sale at dan.com now

... so there is enough room for speculation (it's entertaining).

The listing (itself) was actually real (as we can see).

The point is we don't know the circumstance / reason how / why it got / was listed (and for how long it was already listed before I noticed it), it's just an assumption to say "fake" / "scam" / etc. without knowing it.

Maybe it was indeed the (old / undeleted) listing by the former owner (although hard to imagine as it would have been detected already as I assume).
