iLike Founders Ali, Hadi Partovi Resign MySpace Posts

MySpace is apparently no longer on the iLike lists of iLike founders and twin brothers Ali Partovi and Hadi Partovi, as TechCrunch reports that they are leaving their positions as senior vice president of business development and senior VP of technology, respectively, at MySpace, after joining the social-networking site when it acquired iLike in August.

According to TechCrunch, Ali Partovi will remain with MySpace as a strategic advisor, while Hadi Partovi will leave the social-networking site to pursue opportunities as an advisor and angel investor. TechCrunch added that iLike’s other co-founder, Nat Brown, is still head of mobile at MySpace.

MySpace told TechCrunch:

MySpace SVP of technology Hadi Partovi is stepping down to pursue other opportunities. In addition to continuing his work as an advisor and angel investor to various start-ups, he will be following his passion for education by working directly with technology-focused nonprofits. Hadi leaves as a valued friend to the company, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors. David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
