Badros said in a statement, as reported by AllThingsD:

I’m grateful to (Facebook Co-Founder and CEO) Mark (Zuckerberg) and everyone at Facebook for creating an amazing company that provides an enormous ability to have positive impact in the world. I will very much miss the teams I worked with and interacting with such amazing world-class talent every day. Finally, I’m excited to start iterating on what’s next for me: I’ve learned so much over my many years working and leading at each of Facebook and Google. I’m looking forward to finding new ways to continue my positive impact on the world both as an individual and through companies I invest in and advise.

And Facebook said:

Greg was a valuable member of Facebook’s team, and we wish him the best of luck in the future.
