Interesting. Randi Zuckerberg, sister of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg director of marketing for his company, is leaving her brother’s umbrella and starting her own social media site. All Things D got a hold of Zuckerberg’s resignation letter.
“I have spent my years at Facebook pouring my heart and soul into innovating and pushing the media industry forward by introducing new concepts around live, social, participatory viewing that the media industry has since adopted. We have made incredible progress, but there is still much to be done and other ways I can affect change. Now is the perfect time for me to move outside of Facebook to build a company focused on the exciting trends underway in the media industry.”
No word yet on what the fairer Zuckerberg has in mind. And no public comments yet from her brother. No matter what she does, it’s bound to get plenty of attention. Especially if there is even the slightest whiff of family strife.
