  • Two top Facebook executives are leaving the company and it's not clear what they're moving on to

A campaigner from a political pressure group protests as founder and CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg failed to attend a meeting on fake news held by Parliament's Digital, Culture Media and Sport committee in London November 27, 2018. "Instead, the leaders of Facebook (Fidji Simo), Instagram (Adam Mosseri), Messenger (Stan Chudnovsky), and WhatsApp (Will Cathcart) will report directly to me, and our Chief Marketing Officer (Antonio Lucio) will report directly to Sheryl".

And just more than a week later, two of its biggest executives are leaving the company. In addition to Cox's departure, Chris Daniels, the head of WhatsApp, is also leaving the company. "He has played so many central roles at Facebook - starting as an engineer on our original News Feed, building our first HR teams and helping to define our mission and values, leading our product and design teams, running the Facebook app, and most recently overseeing the strategy for our family of apps".

Cox's unexpected departure, which he and Zuckerberg announced in separate Facebook posts Thursday, comes months after Cox was promoted in a major reorganization.

Zuckerberg phrased that more delicately, noting that "We both realized we had too much important work to do to improve our products for society".

Cox and Daniels are among a string of executives who've left Facebook since 2017.

"As Mark has outlined, we are turning a new page in our product direction", Cox wrote in a statement.

The departures follow the resignations of Instagram founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger and WhatsApp's co-founder Jan Koum past year.

"It's a product vision attuned to the subject matter of today: a modern communications platform that balances expression, safety, security and privacy", Cox wrote in a Facebook post.
