Adam Mosseeri, former VP of News Feed has been appointed the new instagram head. Snapchat is considered to be Instagram’s biggest rival and expected to make $2.7 billion in the same period and very similar features of snapchat has been added to Instagram which is very well going off like the story feature. “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.” said Kevin Systrom.
Systrom and Krieger’s exit might become a hindrance and influence in order to manage the under way crisis that Facebook has to look upon precisely the fake news manace and privacy violation.
