As you know, Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger founded Instagram in 2010, and in 2012 the company acquired the social network Facebook. "They hadn't gotten the sense they [Systrom and Krieger] were on the way out". However business media in the U.S. have suggested that Systrom and Krieger did not see eye to eye with Zuckerberg in the way Instagram is moving forward. Tensions with Zuckerberg were cited by many reports and analysts as the reason for their exit.

WhatsApp cofounder Brian Acton, dressed in a WhatsApp baseball cap and T-shirt, said those words while sitting down with a Forbes reporter in the cafe of the Four Seasons hotel in Palo Alto as part of an interview offering something we rarely get a look at.
The Instagram situation is similar, Kessler said. "If you think about Instagram now versus a year or two ago, the amount of promotional advertising is markedly different". Monday, Systrom announced they are "ready for our next chapter".
They didn't provide a reason for quitting, but in the last interviews he gave before announcing his departure, Systrom may have hinted at why he and Krieger made a decision to leave the company.
