The unveiling of BBC Three's new logo on Monday provided a rich source of material for social media's amateur comedians and 'this makes me so angry' brigade.

The buzz: BBC Three unveils new logo

The Beeb is rebranding the channel as it becomes online-only next month.

New BBC Three logo for online is confirmed as this one. I think it says BBC2!

BBC 11! Or maybe BBC 2! (The new BBC 3 logo) - #Crappydesign
@EvoHans

Why is the new BBC 3 logo / ident shouting 2 at me?
@carlminns

BBC 3’s rebranding is so heavy mate, I could of literally made this with clip art in year one.
@CalKenwright_96

I dont think even #W1A could have thought up BBC Eleven And An Exclamation Mark II! as the new #BBC3 logo. Bafflingly bewildering
@aanightingale

Really not sure why there is a brouhaha about the new #BBC3 logo. Looks clean and modern and suitable for purpose to me. Never seen W1A.

Spotlight on... 

Marc Allera, incoming chief executive, EE
Four years after joining EE as its commercial head, Marc Allera has been named the mobile operator’s new chief executive, replacing Olaf Swantee. Allera, a former marketing director of Three, will take the reins once EE’s takeover by BT is complete. His ascent bears similarity with that of the BT chief executive (and former Advertising Association president), Gavin Patterson. How the two ex-marketers work together in an increasingly dynamic UK telecoms market will be worth watching.
