WhatsApp’s Chief Business Officer Is The Latest Executive To Leave Facebook

Neera Arora has joined the league of high-profile executives, leaving Facebook over its privacy issues.

WhatsApp’s Chief Business Officer Is The Latest Executive To Leave Facebook

Neeraj Arora, WhatsApp’s Chief Business Officer, is the latest in the growing number of high-profile Facebook executives to split their service off from the company.

Neeraj Arora was with WhatsApp since 2011 and decided to end his term with the company, seven months after WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum announced his high-publicized exit from Facebook back in April, this year. Neeraj was also a front-runner for the post of CEO at WhatsApp after Koum left.

Neeraj notified his resignation via a Facebook post and was quoted as saying,

He also stated that,

With his exit, Neeraj indirectly indicated the disappointment that many leaders have faced due to Facebook’s use of personal data and it’s attempt to weaken the encryption.

In his further post, he stated, 

Also, he thanked Koum and Acton in his twitter post as well but not once did he mention Mark Zuckerberg in his farewell note, who bought the App for $22 Billion in 2014.

In a deleted blog post, Koum reportedly shared his concern over privacy issues. He was unhappy about Mark Zuckerberg's business model about how Facebook would monetize the app and impact of that on the privacy.

Recently, Instagram co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger announced they were leaving Facebook years after the company acquired their photo-sharing app for $1 billion. They shared the news in September, just a few months after Koum stepped down from WhatsApp.

A sudden vacation of all the top profiles of Facebook can be an indication that the company’s business strategy might be in danger over a long term.
