Facebook CTO will resign
Facebook CTO Mike Schroepfer announced yesterday that he will be stepping down from his 13-year job. Schroepfer transitioned to a part-time role as a senior member of the company; In 2022, Schoepfer will be replaced as CTO by Andrew Bosworth, currently head of Facebook’s hardware division. Bosworth will continue to lead the AR/VR organization in his new role.
Schroepfer said it was a difficult decision as he loves Facebook and is excited about the future they will build together. Mike Schroepfer stated that he wants to spend time with his family in the upcoming period. Commenting on Schroepfer’s departure, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said: “I want to thank Schrep for his outstanding contribution to our community and company over the past 13 years. From building and scaling our teams to guiding many of our key leaders, including AI and VR. “He’s played a critical role in almost everything we do, from helping us develop new technologies to operating our infrastructure and commercial services on a global scale. Schrep and I have been a close partnership over the years, and he’s a great leader as well as a great person and a close friend.”
We can say that the rise of Andrew Bosworth to the position of CTO is a precursor that Facebook will notify the hardware in the future. In addition to this development, the company stated earlier this year that the metaverse, a space where people can meet in virtual reality, will be the main focus of the Oculus division. Recently, Facebook announced new smart glasses and new generation portal video calling devices in partnership with Ray-Ban.
