Facebook's increasingly heavy-handed influence over its acquisition has frustrated Instagram's team, especially Krieger and Systrom.
Instagram cofounders Mike Krieger and Kevin Systrom.
Kevin and Mike made this known on their Instagram pages, releasing the same statement on their platforms. "I've learned a lot working with them for the past six years and have really enjoyed it". "I wish them all the best and I'm looking forward to seeing what they build next", Zuckerberg said.

But Zuckerberg's restraint appears to have waned. Brian Acton, WhatsApp's other co-founder, had already left the previous September. It's fair to say that Instagram could have died as a little start-up in Facebook's long shadow, and it definitely benefited from the discipline, infrastructure and advertising sales machine that it accessed as a semi-autonomous region inside of mother Facebook. Facebook recently disclosed that it had deleted hundreds of pages across Instagram and its main social network linked to global misinformation campaigns meant to disrupt elections. Facebook CFO Dave Wehner said "Instagram is growing more quickly and making an increasing contribution to growth, and we've been pleased with how Instagram is growing". Facebook's main app has been marred by scandals around privacy, the Cambridge Analytica issue, and the spread of fake news.
Facebook also needs Instagram financially.
On the news that WhatsApp cofounder Jan Koum was leaving Facebook earlier this year, sources told The Washington Post that a power struggle was partially responsible for the departure.
On Facebook's second-quarter earnings call, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said, "We believe Instagram has been able to use Facebook's infrastructure to grow more than twice as quickly as it would have on its own".
