Sheryl Sandberg, the chief operating officer of Meta, announced her departure from the social media giant Wednesday following the company's rise in global influence that also led to various scandals.
Sandberg, who had been with Facebook for 14 years since it was an upstart, was one of CEO Mark Zuckerberg's top executives.
"Sitting by Mark’s side for these 14 years has been the honor and privilege of a lifetime," she wrote in a lengthy Facebook post announcing her resignation. "Mark is a true visionary and a caring leader. He sometimes says that we grew up together, and we have."
In a Facebook post of his own, Zuckerberg credited Sandberg with much of the company's success.
