Chris Cox returns to Facebook as chief product officer

San Francisco, June 13 (IANS) Former Facebook executive Chris Cox announced that he is returning to the social media company as Chief Product Officer.

He left the company last March after Zuckerberg announced the company would enable end-to-end-encryption across its suite of products.

"I''m returning to Facebook as our Chief Product Officer. I have been away just over a year but it''s a different world now. Like many of you, I''ve been thinking hard about what I can do for our families and communities today, and for the world our children will live in tomorrow. Facebook and our products have never been more relevant to our future. It''s the place I know best, it''s a place I''ve helped to build, and it''s the best place for me to roll up my sleeves and dig in to help," Cox said in a Facebook post.

In the post he also referred to the challenges facing the world today, including public health crisis, economic crisis, and racial injustice.

"In 2019 I refocused my time, spinning up climate change initiatives, building progressive political infrastructure for this election year, playing with my reggae band, and reconnecting with my family and kiddos. Then 2020 refocused us all, on a public health crisis, an economic crisis, and now a reckoning of racial injustice," Cox noted.

Cox originally joined Facebook in 2005 as the company''s 13th software engineer.

Prior to his departure from Facebook, he was responsible for overseeing the company''s family of apps, such as WhatsApp, Messenger, Instagram and the core Facebook app.
