Meta, Twitter and Co. will cut more than 50,000 jobs in 2022


In addition to the Meta Facebook group, many other major Silicon Valley tech companies have laid off jobs.

The technology industry has been driven by a real digitalization boom since the outbreak of the corona crisis. This boom came to an abrupt end in 2022. More than 50,000 jobs have been cut since the beginning of the year in the US technology sector, where Silicon Valley is important to the industry. This conclusion was reached by the American data analysis company Crunchbase.

The Facebook group Meta, which also owns Whatsapp and Instagram, laid off 11,000 employees yesterday, Wednesday. Meta follows on Twitter: Previously new Twitter boss Elon Musk, 51 – barely in office – laid off roughly half of 7,500 employees. Musk also fired 200 employees from Tesla.
