Instagram’s Founders Left Facebook
The photo sharing app announced that Instagram’s founders will leave the roof company Facebook. The tension with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg may be behind this separation.
Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, on the web site of Instagram, said that they will spend some time with their curiosity and try to rediscover their creativity. Systrom and Krieger ler dün Establishing new things requires withdrawal, understanding what inspires us, and combining it with what the world needs. We’ll do it too Biz Biz he said.
Facebook is having hard times with the allegations that it has recently been used as a spread of news, sharing user information with third parties, intervening in elections and as a means of propaganda.
After meeting Systrom and Krieger in 2010, they had developed Instagram in a garage in San Francisco. Two years later, they had sold 30 million users to Facebook for $ 715 million. Today, Instagram has more than a billion users, one of the most profitable sources for Facebook’s ad revenue. Finally, Bloomberg had valued $ 100 billion.
WhatsApp’s founders, Brian Acton and Jan Koum, left Facebook in 2017 and 2018.
Many people say that after Systrom and Krieger have left, Instagram is expected to become more dependent and integrated to Facebook.
