Overall, the 15 percent cut will amount to 250 employees being let go from the company. The drastic move from the digital-media platform is a move to deal with challenges of the advertising market. In a memo to employees, Chief Executive Officer Jonah Peretti said, “we’ve developed a good understanding of where we can consolidate our teams, focus in on the content that is working, and achieve the right cost structure.” The layoffs will kickstart BuzzFeed’s examination of “the evolving economics of digital platforms.”
