The Meta Platforms conglomerate, formerly known as Facebook, Inc. has announced a massive layoff of 13% of its workforce, a total of 11,000 fewer employees.
Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg said it was one of the most difficult decisions he has ever had to make: "We have decided to reduce the size of the Meta team by approximately 13% and lay off thousands of talented workers. According to Zuckerberg, the goal is to become a more efficient company by cutting costs, in addition to a hiring freeze until the first quarter of next year.
Meta's decision comes on top of Elon Musk's high-profile layoffs after acquiring the social network Twitter, as well as other companies in the technology sector that have opted for the same drastic decision in recent weeks.
