Meta Layoffs | Why Zuckerberg's Metaverse bet has proven to be a bit too costly

Mark Zuckerberg has sacked 13 percent of Meta's workforce in the first broad job cuts the company has had in its 18-year history.

Why has this happened - and why was Zuckerberg's apology to his employees well-deserved? Well, Zuckerberg's metaverse bet may just have proven to be a bit too costly. Is it Facebook's 'meta'morphosis that has led to this situation? Watch this video to find out!
