Meta denies report Mark Zuckerberg is standing down as CEO: ‘This is false’


Meta has denied a widespread report that Mark Zuckerberg is standing down as its chief executive.

On Tuesday, a report spread across the internet that Mr Zuckerberg would be stepping down from his role as the head of the company in 2023. It was first reported in The Leak, a relatively new online publication.

But Andy Stone, perhaps Meta’s most outspoken communications officials, flatly denied the report on Twitter.

“This is false,” he tweeted, giving no more clarification or context to the denial.
