D’Angelo is the Quora CEO while Cheever didn’t have a formal title but had most recently led the development of the company’s Android app . The shake-up doesn’t look good for Quora, but it does give the company another parallel to Facebook, where Mark Zuckerberg is the sole co-founder and member of the early team to remain. Cheever is a Harvard grad who heavily involved in the creation of Facebook Connect and Facebook Platform. He was formerly at Amazon. In a canned Q&A on the site, “ Why is Charlie Cheever stepping away from Quora day-to-day? ” D’Angelo wrote, “We decided it was best for Charlie to step away from his day-to-day role at the company. He will always be a founder of Quora and will be an advisor to the company.”
