Mosseri, 35, has been Instagram’s head of product since May. He began as a designer at Facebook in 2008, and recently ran its News Feed. His appointment comes among fears that with the departure of Instagram independent-minded founders, the app will become more like Facebook: Cluttered with features, and invasive of user’s personal data.
