Zuckerberg Admits He’s ‘Accountable’ For Facebook’s Failures As Meta Announces Mass Layoffs

“Downcast” Zuckerberg admits he’s “accountable” for censorious Big Tech company’s failures.

Facebook parent company Meta platforms Inc. will begin mass layoffs on Wednesday, CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed during a meeting today.

The Wall Street Journal reported that a “downcast” Zuckerberg admitted to hundreds of executives that “he was accountable for the company’s missteps, and that his over-optimism about growth had led to overstaffing.”

The cuts and layoffs are reportedly set to affect many thousands of the site’s 87,000 employees.

Zuckerberg’s net worth and Meta stock have cratered in recent weeks following the acquisition of rival Big Tech platform Twitter by African-American billionaire Elon Musk.

Additionally, Zuckerberg’s Metaverse pet project has been widely criticized and failed to generate significant consumer interest despite billions in funding from Meta.

Controversies surrounding Facebook’s political agenda around censoring non-left wing content have also plagued the company.

In February, Zuckerberg revealed that his employees should now consider themselves Metamates, and righting the sails of the big tech platform as their military duty.

It came in the form of a new motto – “Meta, Metamates, Me” – and Zuckerberg told his Metamates it “is about being good stewards of our company and mission.”

That mission, too, has been revamped.

Metamates – employees of the company formerly known as Facebook – must now live their lives according to the principle, “move fast together.”

The previous slogan was “move fast” and Facebook’s original slogan was “move fast and break things.”

“It’s about the sense of responsibility we have for our collective success and to each other as teammates,” Zuckerberg explained. “It’s about taking care of our company and each other.”

Incoming Meta CEO Andrew Bosworth explained that the Metamates’ new identity “is a reference to a Naval phrase,” that phrase being “Ship, Shipmates, Self.”

As Valiant News previously reported, Elon Musk fired about 50% of Twitter workers, or roughly 4,000 people, after acquiring the company last week.

Facebook’s upcoming layoffs will surpass Twitter’s as the most expansive by a Big Tech company this year.

    I’ve had Facebook since in came out. I’ve been thrown off more times than I can count and I WANT IT TO GO BANKRUPT. Do you hear that Mark? Nobody cares about you including your own employees. Are they going to sue you in mass the way they are Twitter?
