Facebook: two top executives to leave company

Facebook: two top executives to leave company

"While it is sad to lose such great people, this also creates opportunities for more great leaders who are energized about the path ahead to take on new and bigger roles", Zuckerberg said.

"Most all my personal highs and lows of the last decade have been tied up in the journey of this company, with Mark, and with so many of you", Cox wrote in a post.

Cox has a 13-year history with Facebook, starting as one of the company's first 15 engineers, who then worked his way up the ranks. A filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission shows that Cox informed Facebook about his intended departure on March 11, just five days after Zuckerberg made his privacy plan public. Instead, the managers of Facebook's apps - which include the flagship Facebook app, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp - will report directly to Zuckerberg. "This will be a big project and we will need leaders who are excited to see the new direction through", Cox said in a Facebook post.

"At this point, we have made real progress on many issues and we have a clear plan for our apps, centered around making private messaging, stories and groups the foundation of the experience, including enabling encryption and interoperability across our services", Zuckerberg continued. He was named the head of WhatsApp less than a year ago.

Facebook isn't hiring another executive to replace Cox.

Sinn Fein's leader in Northern Ireland, Michelle O'Neill, and SDLP leader Colum Eastwood joined the families on the march. British Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said the UK Government would fund all of the former soldier's legal bills.

Daniels has been at Facebook almost nine years, and previously led the company's Internet.org effort, a project aimed at bringing internet access to developing countries.

Will Cathcart, vice president of product management, will now lead WhatsApp, and Head of Video, Games and Monetization Fidji Simo will be the new head of the Facebook app, Zuckerberg said.

Zuckerberg said on Thursday that Olivan will now lead the effort to integrate Facebook apps, a key move as the company encrypts conversations on more of its messaging services and makes them compatible.

Daniels took the helm of WhatsApp after founders Jan Koum and Brian Acton left the messaging app past year, reportedly over disagreements about the increased integration of WhatsApp's operations with Facebook's.

Facebook is the largest social network in the world, with 2.3 billion monthly active users.
