Ruchi Sanghvi: Profile, Husband, Net Worth and Wiki



You are relying for Facebook for everything social you do – from messaging to sharing your thoughts, images and videos. It has virtually become a dining table where we are sitting around and talking about various issues.


But, do you know that the first female engineer hired by Facebook was an Indian. Yes, that is the fact. Her name is Ruchi Sanghvi.


It is widely believed that the main reason behind initial success of Facebook was its algorithm for News Feed – what is there on your wall. In fact, this News Feed had dethroned Orkut and My Space, among others social networking attempts. Even Google couldn’t match the News Feed algorithm of Facebook with its most powerful attempt in the world of Social Network/Media with Google Plus.


And, Ruchi was the team leader that had written main codes of News Feed algorithm.
Later, she was transferred from the Engineering Team to the Product Management job and handled tough tasks of her pet project News Feed and Facebook Platform, among others.

It was developed and announced by a blog post to the world by none other than Ruchi in September, 2006. There were lots of discussions about News Feed – positives and negatives. Some of the criticisms were related to privacy issues, which were found to be true. Ruchi along with her team worked for continuous 48 hours and solved all concerned. The new version of News Feed was launched within one week and announced by Mark Zuckerberg. Rest is history.
