Meta staff bloodbath continues as Zuckerberg confirms another 10,000 layoffs - 13% of its remaining staff - as he warns 'new economic reality will continue for many years' (www.dailymail.co.uk)

I see 'meta' -- but it reads 'AOL'
I read MySpace
My space was better, ran by a real American
Not that I ever used either product
Hey now, Zuckerborg is Android American, don't be a dick to our silicon brothers. I hear he's working on an upgrade to let him give out a small laugh when he fires people or sends information to the FBI.
zuck is made in china ... if hed been asked 2 questions at once in hearings his voice chip would have failed and the hearings would have had to continue inmandarin
Tom was everyone's friend
You can find Tom on instagram. He's quite a good photographer.
I did sort of like MySpace. Had some cool timewaster games on it at the time (pre-Zynga).
I liked Myspace when Tom was in charge.
After he sold it, it went to shit.
I told Elon he should buy it and bring it back
What about Tripod?
GeoCities was my first website, so it will always have a special place in my heart. I think it was where I first learned HTML, which I still use almost daily.
I read Obama, and we could really use that magic wand again
Barry doesn't have the strength to wave Big Mike's wand.
I read: “Bye, all you H1B demoKKKrat illegal-voting NorCal pajeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeets!!! 👋🏼👋🏼👋🏼👋🏼”
H1Bs will not be laid off. They invested to much in them, sponsoring their status and free legal work and their immigration status prevents them from jumping jobs. They make good indentured servants.
I hope so, but realistically all 20k will be outsourced overseas, just like banks, healthcare, etc. are doing with everything that supports your vital information.
fuck yeah livejournal
Imagine having this many employees to build some fake-ass meta world. Isn't that 21,000 layoffs so far? WHAT are these employees even doing other than taking well-ness breaks and drinking starbucks?
The absolute irony of helping your billionaire boss to steal an election, only to be laid off as a consequence 😏
all useful idiots eventually get in the ditch or face the wall
yep, these guys are lucky. I wonder if it's all enough to redpill them..an NPC mind isn't always penetrable.
They don't have enough of an inner life in order to recognize a red pill when given one.
Agreed. They have all been indoctrinated in the hive mind that is woke-ism. It takes something more severe than a simple firing, like not being able to go out to eat 5 days a week and realizing the prices.
They thought they'd be safe there.
They need to learn to weld.
They wrere only there because they had no morales of any kind and were too stupid to recognise they were completely expendable.
I came here to say this, and you put it more simply than I would of, well said Pounder.
You get what you fucking deserve.
They're project managing and making DEI great, of course!
Seriously though, there is a shitload of dead weight in tech...
There are way too many middle-managers on this planet.
HR is a massive cost center, with the recent ESG/DEI grifter bullshit hanging even more dead weight onto the balance sheets.
One project manager can handle at least 4-5 moderate-sized projects without too much effort, instead of just handling one.
We don't really need Agile Coaches or Scrum Masters. Seriously, we don't. Nobody pays attention to them anyway. Make the product manager or the tech lead get off his ass and run the standups if it's that damned necessary.
Lots more, not enough space. Suffice it to say that Twitter was able to kick out 80%(!) of its employees, and still run the same (and in some aspects better) than it always has. Facebook/Meta/WTF-Ever could easily do the same.
Low interest rates make almost every business profitable. Even stupid ass Meta fake world nonsense
When you have to make 7% to earn a profit, all that shit stops quick. So does all the diversity cancer.
Tech is being burned down and I hope rates hit 8%
They won’t though
Exactly. And those dying tech companies are the ones pulling their deposits from banks in a vain attempt to survive and causing economic fallout. It's all unraveling.
Facebook has like 20 dollars in revenue per user, they have no issue making money
I hope rates hit 17%
I visited my Fortune 50 medical customer on a Monday, new employeed orientation day. 35 people, not one white male, a third black women and a third in buquas. Not even a token asian guy. The whole office was a giant social hour, with 25 year-old girls yapping and surfing social media all day.
Meanwhile, 55 year-old guys with hard science knowledge are doing all the work, as contractors of course.
That's the data field in a nutshell, the majority of people can only make half assed excel templates, while a few can actually come up with algorithms that transform raw data into something useful. .
I remember in 2010,under the Obamabation era, that Executives were educating employees about the New Normal. This was about diversity and economics. That we will downsize for a smaller piece of the economic pie and the company will volunteer and contribute to community programs for marginalized communities. Don't expect any raises. Since then Corporations have been saddled with hiring dangerous NPCs with useless degrees. They are not PMs
Isn't the whole point of the Scrum Master to just keep management away from the coders?
Originally. Now it's to act like a conduit for them. Sort of like how TQM was supposed to empower the workers back in the 1990s, until most management converted that idea into a glorified suggestion box.
fucking LOL thats the best 1 liner description ive heard in a while
I guarantee you half their day was spent attending DEI workshops.

They actively lie, commit fraud and sabotaging American companies and employees everywhere they work. We’ve seen them sprint down company halls screaming like children, while others work.
I've driven past the Fuckerbook campus many times in Menlo Park. It's massive with multiple buildings and real estate. Every time I saw it I would ask myself "all that just for a webpage and phone app?" What could all those people be doing day after day? Elon obviously saw the same thing at Twitter.
You should go on the main campus. It looks like downtown Disneyland, bunch of shops and places to eat and get desserts.
Facebook? Sure. However, instagram is still popular and WhatsApp is the most popular messaging app in the world. Both owned by Meta.
Facebook has replaced craigslist. That is the only thing I use it for
Same. I started using Facebook in 2004 or 2005 in college. I've since gone through and deleted everything on my account and only ever sign on to go to the marketplace.
Same. I deleted everything except for a few pics of family. Too much toxicity there. At least we can call each other a faggot and move on. There it's constant bullshit and drama 24/7.
I wish it hadn't, facebook did the impossible and cultivated an even worse userbase than craigslist despite having ostensibly real names tied to transactions.
Does this count as election spoilers? It feels like that's what they're implying by saying it will be many more years.
You mean it is being replaced with Instagram? And Whatsapp is not going away
There is always a replacement. The relatively low barrier to entry in this space guarantees it. And when they fuck up as bad as facebook, users have a low barrier to simply move somewhere else and leave them holding the bag.
Agreed, only have some extended family where Facebook is the only consistent way to contact them as the only reason I haven't completely purged the account.
Downvote for regurgitating the same lame excuse most pedes abandoned when they banned the sitting US President
I accept, I don't use the site to post on, my profile hasn't changed since like 2008. Literally only to respond directly to messages and usually with the reminder that it's the least effective way to contact me.
Sorry, man, but they have voice, SMS, email, snail-mail addresses you can go visit or send stuff to... get that vital data, then GTFO of Facebook. It's for your own good that I say this.
I left that shithole entirely in early 2019, and I haven't looked back, in spite of having family scattered across the continent.
I know, it's funny actually how often I respond to Facebook messages with text messages or emails and they still don't get the hints.
If I had to get on Facebook to talk to family, I wouldn't talk to them. Luckily, my family knows how to use the phone and email.
Yeah i've been on there since practically the start. I don't use it aside from sharing some photos with relatives who don't have any other outlet. The site is sterile.. absolutely sterile. Its probably been this way for over 10 years now. None of my friends post anything of merit any more.. its simple photos of kids doing stuff or photos of vacations. There is genuine fear out there of posting anything political - especially on the right. Of course i've got 2-3 liberal friends who posted garbage for YEARs.. but even they are silent these days.
Honestly, what we actually use facebook for could be easily replaced with email again - if everyone could just agree to do it.
I don't post on it at all, it's just "private" messaging for me and constantly remind the few hold outs that I don't have the app and don't see the messages quick, texting is better, etc... even given them alternatives where I would respond...
What's really needed are more Google Photos competitors. Google Photos is really the best way to store and share pictures with people. There's nothing out there that has a similar feature set and ease of setup. Not even Linux homebrew solutions are at a similar level at this point.
I have no problem sending photos through email.
This ahole donated money to dems to steal elections, dems cripple economy and now these layoffs. Get fucked meta
Learn to weld
My daughter is learning to weld using the 3D VR goggles. It's really great...she moves around, waving her arms carelessly about like a retard robot marionette. She's already destroyed 5 lamps and some angel figurines. Oh shoot, her acetylene torch has caught the drapes on fire. I better run take care of this.
I already know how to weld, i’m not a faggot. You think Mike Pence can weld? Hell no!
The only thing Mike Pence welds are his lips around his boyfriend's _____.
Haven’t used Facebook in years. Never had Instagram or Snapchat.
I’m still so busy I have not time for it.
Dear Biden voters,
Dems and Biden voters won't blame him. They're too busy whining about the rich or corporate greed.
He thought everyone was as as socially awkward as him and would want to live their lives in a virtual environment and is losing millions on the Metaverse. Sorry Marky, we actually like to shake hands with people and see their smiling faces. Because we’re, ya know, nice people.
His real issue is that he bet the barn on a product that he clearly didn't do any market research due diligence on. If he had, he would have seen hat VRChat was already an oppressively dominant player in the space, cross platform, free, and open. Metaverse never stood a chance.
VR has some cool applications, but Zuckerberg was a dumb ass trying to make Second Life in VR. If he wanted VR to expand, he should have worked on making the hardware more streamlined/less dumb looking and invest in developers with good applications for the technology. Personally, I'd invest more in the augmented reality side of things and make educational tools where people can look at real objects through their goggles and have it instruct you so you can learn new skills.
Teaching someone how to play an instrument, learn a language (look at an object, tells you the name), cook, fix a car, etc. That'd be awesome. Not stupid VR chat rooms.
You can do all of those things now without a dumbass VR headset. You don't get tactile feedback of working on anything, so I really don't see the point in any of it.
Make horror movies and games with it. That genes works better with true immersion
Why did they have so many employees to begin with? The platform is built, they just need maintenance staff and maybe 1 small group adding stupid features like cat emojis.
Were they all commie thought police?
Facebook has more than just facebook - Whatsapp, Instagram, Oculus...
Also they need formal moderation to keep illegal shit off the site, I am tired of seeing heroin for sale on Facebook marketplace
Ironic cuz he helped Biden get into office
Yup, along with most of the staff. I bet many of those being laid off are also PedoJoe supporters.
Step 1. Hire programmers to write code.
Step 2. Fire all of them once they're finished.
Step 3. Keep minimal staff to keep it running.
Step 4. Profit.
The plot of Live Free or Die Hard.
Where are all the media shills crying about the layoffs like they did with Twitter. Musk basically showed big tech how to run a business
Who gives a shit? A bunch of nerdy faggots lose their jobs. Boo fucking hoo.
Zuck will hire them back in the metaverse 😂
That company is woke all the way to the top. There is no repair. If you have money invested in Facebook, you haven’t been paying attention.
He can start by cutting his robot cock off and putting it inside of his dusty scuzzy port
ya'll remember scsi?
You mean the economic reality where tech faggots can no long we be paid for doing nothing?
Maybe they can all learn to fight Russians since that’s what they are so passionate about.
You will be unemployed, and you will be happy.
Facebook has openly violated the rights of the majority of the US citizenry. It baffles me that they were allowed to do so.
whooosh is the sound of Mark sliding down the toilet.
All while on his surfboard of course lol.
Zuckerbucks paying dividends.
Whatever will all the diversity and inclusion purple haired liberal arts degree people do?!?
At first I thought 10k brought it down to 13% off original staff not realizing I read it wrong, then checked how many work for meta, over 83k people. Why the fuck does any social media company need that many employees?
Censorship and gas lighting must take a lot of resources.
Couldnt have happened to a nicer bunch.
He looks like someone punched him in the nose.
Facebook has to stay liquid - a HUGE election is on the horizon, and they have to have cash to donate, "influence" and steal the election for the demoncrats.
When Useful Idiots exaust their usefulness. Fakebook is like Grindr for pretention and virtue signalling.
Looks like he got a bruised nose and swollen eye…
His masters are not pleased.
The fact that Meta is layoff people in one of the strongest economies in history says something about the current state of things... Not long ago Meta et al where hiring thousands. Lets home those laid of where TCN and not Americans
Funny. Because FB recently built a giant data center out in the desert town of Eagle Mountain, Utah. Whats that one movie with Johnny Depp in it, where becomes like nano-bots, or something like. That's what that place reminds of.
Edit: Okay, so I use to live in the neighboring town of Eagle Mountian, and not too far down from the road from me, was the giant NSA Data Center. These are not coincidences.
USFUL idiots they robbed the American people and it will continue in another form, job is done good bye
