Facebook has chosen to present animations in its logo every time there is an important event or a fact of world interest is commemorated, something similar to what Google developers do with their Chrome browser. On this occasion, Mark Zuckerberg’s social network has released an animation in reference to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games that began today, July 23, have you noticed?
Today the thirty-second edition of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games began, and despite the fact that it is being developed in 2021, the aforementioned edition maintains its original name because it was suspended due to the new coronavirus pandemic (COVID- 19).
