WhatsApp founder Brian Acton


The founders of the Instagram application, Kevin Systrom, and Mike Krieger left their positions on Facebook last Monday. Many media reports said the dispute with Mark Zuckerberg, the site’s executive director, caused the departure, and before that, the WhatsApp founder decided to leave the company as well.

A recent report revealed that Watanabe’s founder Brian Acton had big differences with Mark Zuckerberg’s chief executive and chief operating officer Cheryl Sandberg about the future of the famous messaging service before leaving.

According to Acton’s interview with Forbes magazine on Wednesday, Acton spent eight years working at WhatsApp before leaving the company in September last year, preceded by co-founder Jean Com, Privacy within Facebook.

Acton pointed out that Facebook wanted to introduce paid benefits to business owners within WhatsApp, but this would have affected the encryption, and tried to suggest some other ideas that would make a profit for the Spock from the application, but Sandberg objected.
