Just one year WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton surprised everyone by leaving the Facebook. Now another old employee of the company is about to do the same.
Neeraj Arora, who is the WhatsApp’s chief business officer, today announced that he is going to take some time off from the company and will spend that time with the family.
In the announcement made by Arora today, he said he is “deeply indebted” to both Acton and Koum, “who entrusted me to be their business companion for so many years.”
Both the owners of WhatsApp and Instagram(Owned by Facebook) left the company and the reason is believed to be caused by quarrels with the social media giant’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg
One of the biggest tech stories of 2018 is that Instagram co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger announced that they are going to leave Facebook years after Facebook bought Instagram for nearly $1 billion.
According to reports, the reason is that Mark Zuckerberg tried to have more control over Instagram which made their founders leave the company.
Both Acton and Koum left the Facebook before they fully gained something from the multi-billion acquisition, which clearly means that the pair was ready to lose hundreds of millions of dollars over continued employment at Facebook.
