"When I took this job in 2008, I hoped I would be in this role for five years, Fourteen years later, it is time for me to write the next chapter of my life."-Sandberg
During her time at the company, Ms. Sandberg built out the business side, turning a free-to-access social-media startup founded in a Harvard dorm room into one of the biggest advertising companies on the planet.
In the comments section, Zuckerberg declared that Sandberg's departure was "the end of an era."
"In the 14 years we've worked together, you've architected our ads business, hired great people, forged our management culture, and taught me how to run a company," he said.
"I'm going to miss working alongside you every day, but grateful to have you as a lifelong friend."he added
Ms. Sandberg was the longtime lieutenant to Mark Zuckerberg, and as the author of the leadership book “Lean In”—became one of the most prominent women in business.
Though other social sites like twitter didn't give her as warm thanks as facebook. Many users even trolled facebook.
