I was at FB for about a year. I think I had been there longer than 40% off employees. It’s wasn’t attrition. FB was hiring like crazy.

Plus tech folks just hop around more.

What is the source for this?

Agreed. However, the stats are available elsewhere and I have noted they are consistent with this article.
