Alex Stamos — who had already been set to go away in August — was once a proponent of revealing and investigating nefarious job through Russian brokers on the social media community, consistent with The New York Times.
It was once now not transparent why he had speeded up his departure.
Facebook didn’t straight away remark.
Stamos penned a weblog put up in Sept. 2017 when Facebook admitted that it bought advertisements to Russian propagandists.
“We will continue to invest in our people and technology to help provide a safe place for civic discourse and meaningful connections on Facebook,” he wrote.
The information of his departure comes after the disclosure that 50 million Facebook person profiles were harvested through Cambridge Analytica.
