Yahoo Finance: Facebook’s Chris Cox was more than just the world’s most powerful chief product officer

Yahoo Finance: Facebook’s Chris Cox was more than just the world’s most powerful chief product officer. “Last month, Chris Cox, 36, decided to leave Facebook after 13 years—his entire, post-university, working life. He joined in November 2005, when Thefacebook, as it was then still called, was only open to college and high school kids—about 5 million of them. He was the thirteenth engineer, he believes, and employee number 40 or so. In 2008, he became the company’s vice president for product and, then, in 2014, its Chief Product Officer, making him the company’s third most powerful executive. Last May, his portfolio was broadened to include Facebook’s family of apps—Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger. As Wired’s Nicholas Thompson noted at the time, the move effectively put him in charge of product for ‘four of the six largest social media platforms in the world.'”
