Just 9 days ago, Mark Zuckerberg posted a touching goodbye post to his friend and co-worker, after she announced that she was stepping down from her position as COO. At the time, he spoke glowingly of her as an "amazing person, leader, partner, and friend."

According to the Wall Street Journal, Facebook has been looking into the misuse of corporate resources since at least the fall.

The Lean In foundation's mission is to foster women's leadership and workplace inclusion, and she may have pulled Facebook staffers into the writing and promotion of her second book, "Option B."

That's a monster.

If the people familiar with the matter are trying to destroy her reputation, they are doing a terrible job. We reached out to Facebook earlier and haven't heard back from them.

No one thinks that the COO is an angel. Many years ago, they re-examining her handling of Facebook's public relations after revelations of Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election, as well as her ambivalence about data privacy. She launched an aggressive lobbying campaign to fight Facebook's critics.

It takes a certain kind of person to run a company like Facebook, and you can't help it grow into one of the most powerful companies in the world. There was a new story that was leaked to the Journal in April. According to the report, Facebook COO and ex-boyfriend of Bobby Kotick, Leann Sandberg, twice pressed a U.K. tabloid to not publish a story about her.

A lot of people were concerned that she might use her muscles in this way. There are new articles about Sandberg. We hope that the leaks about the investigations into the possible misuse of assets are coming from the people associated with her. If so talk about brilliant machinations.

Do you think about it? We have a commanding female COO, who has long been credited for much of Facebook's growth, being investigated for relying on staff to nurture an organization for women, and writing a book for women about overcoming grief.

It's up to Facebook if they want to take issue with the wedding. Both Lean In and Sandberg's books were very good for Facebook's brand when it most needed a bit of change.

We don't think he's looking for coverage in the Journal There are people with an axe in Facebook. Unless these internal investigations lead to a bigger reveal, their efforts to take down Sandberg may backfire.

She is getting the worst send-off from a company to which she remained dedicated longer than almost any other executive. According to the Journal, it's well known that both Facebook COOs use corporate resources for personal reasons. The outlet says that Facebook makes "extensive disclosures" about these things.

In the meantime, these slow leaks make Facebook seem like a bunch of jealous people. People familiar with the matter told the WSJ that some within Meta were concerned about potential SEC violations if Ms. Sandberg used professional resources for personal matters without adequate disclosures.
