Meta is set to layoff more people, this time from the product and engineering department, as its CEO Mark Zuckerberg marches ahead with his 'year of efficiency'. The Washington Post has the details.

Facebook parent company Meta will announce details about new job cuts on Wednesday, part of a months-long downsizing and restructuring effort that will trim 10,000 employees amid multiple waves of layoffs.

In an internal memo obtained by The Washington Post, Meta's head of human resources, Lori Goler, wrote Tuesday evening that the company will begin notifying employees on its technical teams whose jobs are being cut. Meta is also poised to announce newly reorganized teams and management hierarchies as the social media giant seeks to become leaner and more efficient.
