Chris Cox, Quits Being Facebook’s Chief Product Officer, after 13 years with company

Mark Zuckerberg announced on Thursday, that Facebook’s Chief Product Officer, Chris Cox, the most important person at the company after Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg, is leaving the company.

Cox’s departure comes as Facebook is preparing its purported pivot to a privacy-focused social network, and just one day after the New York Times reported a criminal investigation into Facebook’s data-sharing agreements with more than 150 companies.

Chris Daniels, who was heading up WhatsApp, is also leaving.

Cox wrote in a Facebook post on Thursday;

“We are turning a new page in our product direction, focused on an encrypted, interoperable, messaging network. It’s a product vision attuned to the subject matter of today: a modern communications platform that balances expression, safety, security, and privacy. This will be a big project and we will need leaders who are excited to see the new direction through”.
