Facebook Hires VP Engineering – Is He Taking of Schrage’s Job July 28, 2008

Posted by John in Technology.

Techcrunch posted the story that Facebook hires Mozilla Exec Mike Schroepfer as their Director of Engineering.

Instead of rehashing what Mike already said, I think the question is “Is Elliot Schrage Being Replaced to Run the Platform”?  I was very critical when I heard that Facebook was going to hire a PR guy to run their developer platform.  Having a guy like Mike Schroepfer is a good thing and I’m waiting for Facebook to clarify if this will change Elliot Schrage’s job.

Sounds like the developer platform is a non technical job if a PR guy is running it.  Hiring Schroepfer takes the pressure off of Schrage.
