Will Sandberg leave Facebook?

Meanwhile, the rumors that Sheryl Sandberg is leaving Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) have continued to swirl. Of course she could sell all or most of her stock if she leaves to run for the U.S. Senate or to head over to The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS).

She is quite popular, so it’s perhaps unsurprising that there are rumors floating around about what she might or might not do.
