Personal life

Born in Washington, D.C., Moskovitz attended Harvard University as an economics major for two years before he moved to Palo Alto to work full-time on Facebook.[2]

On October 3, 2008, Moskovitz announced that he will leave Facebook in a month to form a new company with Justin Rosenstein, an engineering manager who first worked at Google then later worked at Facebook.

Moskovitz plans to form a company that will be "to your work life what is to your social life". Moskovitz had recruited Rosenstein to Facebook; while at Facebook, they collaborated together on software for business users. Moskovitz's departure follows a series of departures by Facebook executives. In response to this, Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's CEO, released a statement, saying, "Dustin has always had Facebook's best interest at heart and will always be someone I turn to for advice."[3]


Three roommates—Zuckerberg, Chris Hughes, and Moskovitz—founded Facebook in their Harvard University dorm room in February 2004, originally as as an online directory of all Harvard's students and the website was built to help residential students identify members of other residences.[1][4][5] In June 2004, Zuckerberg and Moskovitz took a year off from Harvard and moved Facebook's base of operations to Palo Alto, California, joining Sean Parker, founder of Napster, in his apartment and hiring eight other employees in the process.[6] While at Facebook, Moskovitz was a Vice President, led the technical staff, and worked on the company's internal tools and strategy.
