Badros, who has been with Facebook for four years, confirmed his departure in a statement:

I’m grateful to Mark and everyone at Facebook for creating an amazing company that provides an enormous ability to have positive impact in the world. I will very much miss the teams I worked with and interacting with such amazing world-class talent every day. Finally, I’m excited to start iterating on what’s next for me: I’ve learned so much over my many years working and leading at each of Facebook and Google. I’m looking forward to finding new ways to continue my positive impact on the world both as an individual and through companies I invest in and advise.

Badros, who was one of five chief product VPs who reported directly to CEO Mark Zuckerberg, has not given a definite departure date nor has he said exactly where he’s going next. With Facebook, Badros was responsible for monetization and advertising products. He also led Facebook’s search efforts.
