MENLO PARK, Calif. (NBC, KYMA/KECY) - Meta announced Tuesday it will slash 10,000 workers from its payroll.

In November, the social media giant eliminated 11,000 jobs or about 13% of its workforce.
The company's revenue has been in decline for three straight quarters.
News of the layoffs pleased investors; the company's stock surged more than 5%.
Meta and other tech firms hired aggressively for about two years, but now layoffs are sweeping through the tech sector.
