TheScore, which offers a Facebook-style feed of sports news and game data in its mobile app, recently laid off six staff members from its features team and consolidated its mobile and features teams into one group. The Toronto-based company said the layoffs were the result of a strategic change rather than financial hardship and that it would add additional news editors.
