On Wednesday, Meta will begin its most recent wave of layoffs, which will affect approximately 6,000 individuals.
Meta founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, earlier announced in a March blog post that he would cut 10,000 jobs across two rounds of layoffs in late April and late May.
This is following closely as the Tech company already eliminated 11,000 roles in November.
According to sources privy to the development, employees from Meta who held positions in user experience, marketing, recruiting, and engineering announced their termination on LinkedIn.
“Since we reduced our workforce last year, one surprising result is that many things have gone faster,” Zuckerberg wrote in his March blog post.
“In retrospect, I underestimated the indirect costs of lower priority projects.”
The layoffs are a part of Meta’s “year of efficiency,” which Zuckerberg promoted as being required for the business to shrink and become more agile in the face of a difficult economy and a weakening digital advertising industry
