According to data from the specialized website layoffs.fyithe companies that cut the most jobs in the last year are: Amazon, with 18 thousand; Goal with 11 thousand, (that is, 13 percent of its workforce); Salesforce with nine thousand; and Twitter with more than seven thousand.

Now, in addition to this new wave of layoffs, Facebook and Instagram, platforms owned by Meta, also announced that they will drop their commitment to NFTs. The idea, now, is to focus “on other ways to support creators, people and companies,” Stephane Kasriel, Meta’s director of commerce and financial technologies, reported on Twitter.
In more detail, Kasriel revealed that Meta’s focus will be on “improving messaging, as well as monetization opportunities for Reels and Meta Pay, its payment platform.”
Some product news: across the company, we’re looking closely at what we prioritize to increase our focus. We’re winding down digital collectibles (NFTs) for now to focus on other ways to support creators, people, and businesses. ?[1/5]
