SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Facebook Inc (FB.O) will shift toward more permanently embracing remote work even after coronavirus lockdowns ease, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg told employees in a publicly broadcast livestream on Thursday.

Zuckerberg said the world’s largest social network would start “aggressively opening up remote hiring,” expecting that about half its workforce would work remotely over the next five to ten years.
