[$$] Top Facebook Strategist to Step Down

Facebook Inc.’s top policy and communications executive, Elliot Schrage, is stepping down, ending a decadelong tenure at the social-media giant as it faces intense scrutiny for its business practices and commitment to privacy. Mr. Schrage has been one of the key architects of Facebook’s strategy for various controversies over the past two years, including most recently the company’s response to news that the political firm Cambridge Analytica improperly obtained data on 87 million Facebook users. To understand what's happening now, you have to look back at Facebook's old policies from 2007 to 2014.
