It has been reported that the domain meta.uk has changed hands (Changed from tag GOOSEBERRY to LOVELLSLLP). Hogan Lovells work on behalf of Facebook to acquire domain names, including bulletin.com in the not so distant past and many 'meta' domains.

The domain was owned by the prolific investor in the .UK domain space Michael Toth. He confirmed as much online but is keeping his cards close to his chest by the looks of things:

Meta.uk was registered on 04-Jul-2014 and was previously showing a landing page indicating that the domain was for sale before Facebook announced it's parent company name change to META. Meta.co.uk, however, still seems to be an active business that describes itself as a "Shopify performance agency".

It remains to be seen whether Facebook will acquire the .CO.UK and make a full set.

The co.uk owners have been around since 2013, it would probably take a ridiculous offer to get them to sell.......

Well if anyone can make a ridiculous offer...

The .co.uk is the one to have really so maybe we'll see.

Congrats to the seller. It sucks for the .co.uk owner now. There's going to be confusion.
