In parallel with Meta’s excellent quarterly results for the period between October and December 2022, the company chaired by Mark Zuckerberg has today achieved a very important record: in fact, it seems that, in the last quarter, Facebook has exceeded two billion active users every day on its platform.
A reports Of Engadget based on data from Facebook’s quarterly, in fact, explains that Facebook has grown by 16 million users in the last quarter, exceeding two billion active accounts every day. The milestone is a real record for the Menlo Park social network and for the entire world of technology, and signals that Facebook has managed to carve out a large space for itself among the general public, despite the platform now starting its third decade of life.
In parallel, Whatsapp also reached two billion of active users on a daily basis, especially due to its expansion into emerging markets. Even in this case, however, the figure is of enormous importance and marks a great success for Meta. On the contrary, however, the Facebook Metaverse struggles to mesh, causing the company to lose a billion dollars a month.
The success of the two social platforms, however, it won’t be enough to keep Meta safe from cuts and layoffs. On the contrary, Mark Zuckerberg himself, addressing his investors, explained that 2023 will be the“year of efficiency”which will also be achieved at the cost of large-scale redundancies and redundancies.
It is not clear, however, if with these words Zuck was referring to the 13% cut in Meta’s workforce which took place last November and which led to as many as 11,000 layoffs in the company or if he wanted to prefigure a second wave of redundancies arriving in 2023perhaps in response to worsening global macroeconomic conditions.
