For years, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg has been Mark Zuckerberg’s second in command.
But now, the notorious leftist has announced that she’s leaving Zuckerberg’s company.
Sandberg will apparently be working with the Zuck for the next few months in order to train and transfer her responsibilities to a replacement.
That replacement is expected to be Javier Olivan, the current Vice President of Central Products at Facebook.
Sandberg has taken a lot of the credit for the practices that have allowed Facebook to grow into a financial powerhouse.
When she joined the company, it had just made $150,000,000 in revenue in the previous year.
Years later, with her fingerprints all over Facebook’s advertising and business model, the company cleared $117 BILLION in revenue last year.
Sandberg is reportedly leaving because of the friction that has developed between her and Mark Zuckerberg over the recent scandals that have weighed down Facebook.
The New York Times is blaming Trump for the split, claiming “that the relationship between Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and company COO Sheryl Sandberg took a major downturn during the Trump presidency as the company was forced to deal with multiple scandals and issues.”
Sandberg announced her departure in a social media post:
“The debate around social media has changed beyond recognition since those early days. To say it hasn’t always been easy is an understatement. But it should be hard. The products we make have a huge impact, so we have the responsibility to build them in a way that protects privacy and keeps people safe.”
