It remains to be seen exactly what he’ll be involved with, but Facebook’s new Product Design Manager brings quite a background with him to the job. Until just a few months ago, Chris Weeldreyer was a UI Design Manager at Apple (a role held for over eight years) where, as The Next Web reports, he was responsible for the company’s iWeb and Numbers software, and has been named in a number of Apple’s patent applications. Before that, he worked in both hardware and software product development, having held positions at Frog Design, Pentagram and Cooper. No word from either company on the move, but Weeldreyer himself made the move official on his LinkedIn page — and, of course, his Facebook profile.
