But wait there's more...

And it's not Apple technology, it's the problems continuing to plague Facebook.

Chris Cox, the top product executive at Facebook, is leaving the company along with Chris Daniels, the executive in charge of the WhatsApp messaging platform, chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said Thursday.

And that's just the first slice: On Wednesday, Brian Acton, co-founder of WhatsApp (which sold to Facebook for $19 billion in 2014), again called for people to join him and reject Facebook by deleting the app from their phones, BuzzFeed News reported.

In an appearance as a guest speaker to an undergraduate class at his alma mater, Stanford, Acton criticized Silicon Valley for making money by trading privacy for revenue, even though he ultimately profited himself from it.

Like, profited a bunch of billions. Hard to sympathize. But newsworthy remarks there.

But wait there's more: On Wednesday Facebook suffered its biggest service interruption ever in a widespread outage across its integrated services (including Instagram and WhatsApp) for almost 24 hours.
