Mosseri

Head, Instagram

With its 1 billion monthly active users, Instagram has long been a crown jewel in Facebook’s bouquet of apps. Mosseri took over Instagram’s leadership in October 2018 — 10 years after he first joined Facebook — following the departure of founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger. Since then, the platform has added shopping features that allow creators to tag products in their photos and make them instantly shoppable, as well as tools to fight bullying and abuse. His next big challenge could be to turn IGTV, the service’s flailing YouTube competitor, into an Instagram-size success story. Before moving to Instagram, Mosseri oversaw Facebook’s ubiquitous newsfeed and designed the company’s mobile apps. He was the first designer of video-chat provider TokBox.
