Instagram has a new boss: Adam Mosseri, who led Facebook Inc.’s news feed team for many years.

Mosseri takes on one of Facebook’s fastest-growing properties after Instagram founders, Chief Executive Officer Kevin Systrom and Chief Technology Officer Mike Krieger, resigned last week following tension with Facebook over the direction of the service, according to people familiar with the matter.
