Instagram gets a new chief: Facebook vet Adam Mosseri

Adam Mosseri, former Facebook executive, appointed new chief of Instagram.

Instagram, one of the most popular social media platforms in the world, has just announced a new chief: Adam Mosseri, a veteran of parent company Facebook. Mosseri will be taking over the reins as head of Instagram from co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, who recently announced their departure from the company.

Mosseri’s appointment comes at a critical time for Instagram, as the platform continues to face challenges around issues such as user privacy, misinformation, and the rise of fake news. With his extensive experience at Facebook, where he most recently served as the Vice President of Product Management, Mosseri is expected to bring a fresh perspective and leadership to Instagram as it navigates these challenges.

In a statement announcing Mosseri’s appointment, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg praised his leadership skills and his ability to “bring people together” through his work on products like News Feed and Instagram Stories. Zuckerberg also expressed confidence in Mosseri’s ability to lead Instagram through its next chapter of growth and innovation.

Mosseri, who joined Facebook in 2008 as a product designer, has played a key role in shaping the company’s product strategy and user experience over the past decade. In his new role at Instagram, he will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of the platform, including product development, design, engineering, and operations.

In a statement, Mosseri expressed his excitement about leading Instagram and his commitment to building a platform that is “safe, supportive, and inspiring” for its more than one billion users worldwide. He also acknowledged the important role that Instagram plays in people’s lives and its potential to bring positive change to the world.

As Mosseri takes the helm at Instagram, he will be faced with a number of challenges, including how to address concerns around user privacy and data security, combat the spread of fake news and misinformation, and continue to grow and evolve the platform in a rapidly changing digital landscape.

With his experience and track record of success at Facebook, however, Mosseri is well-positioned to lead Instagram through these challenges and help the platform continue to thrive as one of the most popular and influential social media platforms in the world. It will be interesting to see how he puts his stamp on Instagram and guides it into the future.
