10% of Facebook employees are Ex-Googlers

An interesting article published by the blog Inside Facebook claims that 10% of current Facebook employees previously worked at Google.

According to the blog, it is possible to count more than 40 professionals who left the Mountain View giant in search of new job opportunities.

Among the possible reasons would be the stagnation of new projects at Google, collaborating directly for developers and engineers to leave their positions in search of new opportunities. Among the employees who migrated to Facebook is Justin Rosenstein, one of the developers of the GDrive project.

Facebook, a social networking site created by Mark Zuckerberg – the youngest tycoon in the world with a fortune valued at $ 1.5 billion, currently has a base of 64 million users worldwide.

Was Google losing its “mojo”?
