Meta Platforms Inc. is preparing for a new round of job cuts, targeted at divisions across the company and around the world, as part of a reorganizing and downsizing effort that could affect thousands of workers, the Washington Post reported.
The company, which fired 13% of its workforce in November during its first major layoff, is considering more cuts, including slashing some projects and jobs, the Post reported citing unidentified people familiar with the plans.

Many staff at the company have been concerned ever since the initial round of job cuts that more may be on the way.
