The news: Sheryl Sandberg is leaving her chief operating officer post at Meta, after a storied career at the social media giant.
Consolidation of power: Zuckerberg has repeatedly been summoned to appear before Congress since 2018 to discuss misinformation and other issues, thrusting the formerly introverted, antisocial CEO into the spotlight instead of Sandberg.
Unease: Sandberg's departure, announced on Wednesday, is likely to add to the anxiety many employees feel after a turbulent year.
Ad problems: Olivan has some major challenges to address as he inherits the COO mantle.
What’s next: When you think about the metaverse, our leader there is Boz [Andrew Bosworth],” Sandberg told The Verge. “He is very business-minded and I think will do a great job building the next business for the company.”
The big takeaway: Mark Zuckerberg is more powerful than ever.
