Photo: Sam Odio
Talk about weird timing: Facebook Photos lead product manager Sam Odio is leaving the company this week — just as it is reportedly about to launch a major new update to its mobile photos app.Odio joined Facebook when it acquired his photo-sharing startup Divvyshot last April. That was a classic talent acquisition — Divvyshot only had three people at the time — which makes it strange for Odio to leave after such a relatively short time.
Facebook confirmed Odio’s departure, which was first reported by AllThingsD, but had no comment on any updates to its Photos service.
