Two Top Execs Decide To #DeleteFacebook As They Leave The Company

Things are going from bad to worse for Facebook as two top execs at the company have decided to leave. The BBC has the details:

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has announced the departure of the firm’s chief product officer Chris Cox and head of WhatsApp Chris Daniels.

Mr Cox joined in 2005, a year after Facebook was founded, while Mr Daniels took up his role only a year ago.

No reason has explicitly been given for their departure.

Neither is good for Facebook as anytime key execs leave a scandal ridden company, the optics never look good. Of interest, Cox noted in his own Facebook post that the company is “turning a new page” in its product direction, focused on an encrypted, interoperable, messaging network. Is there something to read into that? Who knows. But if the departures keep coming, then that will be a clear signal that there is trouble in Facebook HQ.
