I've stopped wearing my Fedora baseball cap I bought from brandfuel
stores because of a similar situation. I had 5 people within a time
frame of only a couple hours ask me why I had a Facebook hat on. Sad

I used to carry a backpack with a Fedora sticker on it. Ended up pasting
that sticker on my desktop after constant "Oh sweet, where'd you get that
Facebook sticker" questions, so I know how you feel.
I can only respond that:
(1) Our logo came first, so nyah-nyah-nyah.
(2) Facebook probably has as many attorneys as Red Hat, so going after
them wouldn't get us much other than a big invoice.
(3) I don't think they look that much alike.
(4) Now that some of the friends in our communities actually have
permanent Fedora tattoos *on their bodies*, it's very unlikely
we'll consider changing just because someone else has an "f" logo.
This post is entirely humorous in nature, except for the last point
maybe. Carry on, you fine ladies and gents!

 Because seriously, barring a catastrophe we're not going to change
our branding. :-)
