NEW YORK: Facebook Inc’s Instagram on Monday announced that Adam Mosseri, the current vice president of product, will take over as the new head of the photo-sharing app.

In a blog post, Instagram’s co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, who have announced their departure from the company, said Mosseri will oversee all functions of the business and will recruit a new executive team.

Systrom and Krieger resigned as chief executive officer and chief technical officer of the photo-sharing app last week giving scant explanation for the move.
