Discord is a social platform that is all about quick messaging and talking over the internet. People use it to talk, see each other on video, send messages, and share files. They can do this in private chats or in bigger groups called servers. In 2021, more than 350 million people signed up for Discord, and over 150 million monthly active users.
According to Business Insider, Discord is set to layoff about 4% of its employees as announced this week. The job cuts reportedly focused on the marketing department. With mentions of a shuffle that has seen a few workers shifted to different roles within the company.
