Facebook’s virtual community of 1 billion users is now at risk of collapse.
The social network’s massive network of users and users groups has helped the platform grow rapidly over the last several years, but a series of scandals has raised questions about how the company plans to sustain the platform for the long term.
The revelations about the social network led to its board of directors to request an emergency meeting earlier this month to discuss its future.
“The board of Facebook’s Board of Directors is calling on us to meet and have a meeting,” a Facebook spokesperson told Polygon in a statement.
“As a result of the board meeting, we are temporarily suspending our operating model for the foreseeable future.”
According to the company, the emergency meeting called for a meeting with Facebook’s board and the board of management.
While Facebook’s plans to continue operating under the temporary suspension are unclear, the company has a number of other issues to address that could cause the network to collapse in the near future.
Facebook has long been known for its tight-knit social circles, but this trend has come under increased scrutiny in recent months.
The company is currently the most popular social network in the world, with more than 13 billion monthly users.
While the platform is often used by people who are not necessarily Facebook members, it has become increasingly popular among groups of people who feel alienated from the company’s core audience of members.
The recent scandals have also added to the social media network’s concerns about its long-term sustainability.
“Our goal at Facebook is to be a place where you can connect, share and celebrate your unique and amazing life, but as our culture evolves, so does our business,” the company wrote in a post about the emergency session.
“Our business model will change as our communities change and as we evolve our business model.”
While the board members discussed the company and the issues facing the platform, they also touched on the company itself.
Facebook’s statement continued:”Over the past year, we have been facing a series and ongoing challenges as we transition to a new platform.
In light of these challenges, we feel we are in a unique position to address them and take this action.”
The company has been under increasing scrutiny recently for its handling of the Russian election hacks, as well as other problems such as its policies regarding sexual harassment and its handling on issues of race.
In a statement to Polygon, a spokesperson for Facebook noted that the company was aware of the emergency and was planning to take the necessary steps to protect its users.
“We are aware of this emergency and are actively engaged with our board to address the issues we have identified,” the spokesperson wrote.
“In light of our response, we will be temporarily suspending the service for users who have questions, feedback, or comments about this issue.”
We’re not saying it’s the end of the world.
We’re just saying it doesn’t seem to be the end yet.
