Mark Zuckerberg to lay off 11,000 Facebook and Instagram employees as Meta chaos continues

Zuck, 38, described the huge move as “the most difficult changes we’ve made in Meta’s history”.

“I know this is tough for everyone, and I’m especially sorry to those impacted,” he told staff on Wednesday.

Meta has been hit by soaring costs and a weaker advertising market, which it heavily relies on to make money.

The social network has also taken a massive gamble with Zuckerberg’s metaverse dream, ploughing millions into the project.

It’s the first set of broad job cuts in Meta’s 18-year history.
