The business guru admits it hasn’t been easy moving about the redesigning of its Snapchat photo-messaging app. It says that the Facebook, Inc (NASDAQ:FB) Instagram poses a great deal of competition to it.
The turn of events
The company’s team of experts in several instances tried making things better through minor improvements. However, fingers point at the outgoing CEO of the company. Rumors have been in circulation that the official failed the company.
The official moves out with a lot of excuses. He complains that he lacked enough time with his family because his duties took much of his time. The CEO says the situation got severe to the point where his two children started calling him uncle.
The leader says he is quite happy about the decision to relieve him of his duties. According to him, it is a blessing in disguise since he gets to bond better with the family.
