Internal company recordings reveal Mark Zuckerberg could be triggering the possible destruction of Facebook. 

Recently, the social media mogul told staff in a company Q&A session that he would be “turning up the heat” on performance goals for employees. 

Reuters reported on the meeting quoting audio of the event.

Furthermore, Zuckerberg allegedly stated the intention of these higher expectations was to lose employees. 

What did Mark Zuckerberg tell Facebook employees that might spark a destruction?

“Realistically, there are probably a bunch of people at the company who shouldn’t be here. Part of my hope by raising expectations and having more aggressive goals, and just kind of turning up the heat a little bit, is that I think some of you might decide that this place isn’t for you, and that self-selection is OK with me,” the CEO reportedly said.

The statements seem to be in direct response to the Meta’s slowed growth. However, Mark Zuckerburg has been preparing for the possible destruction of Facebook for a while now. 

The Meta storm has been on the horizon for some time

Earlier in May, Facebook already reported that they had paused all hiring for the platform. 

By the same token, Zuckerberg announced that they would reduce the hiring of new engineers, according to the Reuters report. In 2022, they would only hire 6 to 7,000, as opposed to the initial 10,000 planned for the year. 

In conclusion, Mark Zuckerberg contracting may bring about the destruction of Facebook.

‘A smaller team can mean less in terms of innovation. That can translate into a blow to the user experience. 

Nevertheless, the platform has survived other massive downturns post-pandemic.

If it doesn’t kill it, it may just make it stronger.
