The Instagram co-founders of one of the most popular social networks in the word, Instagram.com have announced that they’d be leaving the social network. According to them, they’d be leaving Instagram in a few coming weeks. They both handed over their letter of resignation without giving a reason for doing that.
Kevin Systrom, who had been the chief executive officer and Mike Krieger who had been the chief technical officer earlier teamed up with Facebook co-founder, Mark Zuckerberg. The social network which is widely used by many brands and people will still continue to function.
The Facebook chief executive officer also commended them and appreciated their efforts.
Quoting Mark Zuckerberg,
All the best and I’m looking forward to seeing what they build next.
Kevin Systrom from his own side also had reasons to be grateful. It seems they were moving to push their innovations to another level.
He also wrote,
Mike and I are grateful for the last eight years at Instagram and six years with the Facebook team. We’ve grown from 13 people to over a thousand with offices around the world, all while building products used and loved by a community of over one billion. We’re now ready for our next chapter.
We remain excited for the future of Instagram and Facebook in the coming years as we transition from leaders to two users in a billion. We look forward to watching what these innovative and extraordinary companies do next.
Who can tell the reason for the reaction? They are just moments after Facebook INC faced their toughest challenges in business.
