It’s been one year since the Cambridge Analytica data scandal blew up, enveloping Facebook in a controversy that is still running to this day.

The scandal shook the company to its core, precisely because it brought some of its foundational processes into question. In righting wrongs, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is pivoting to privacy, and not all of his staff agree with his vision.
The result is some of Facebook’s most loyal servants left the company, after years of stability. Scroll on for the full list of Facebook senior departures over the past 12 months.
