Zuckerberg’s Sister Leaves Facebook

Mark Zuckerbeg’s sister, Randi Zuckerberg who is also the director of marketing of Facebook is going to leave the company after six years to start a new media firm.

In her resignation letter, Zuckerberg said:

“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.”

While there is no direct comment from Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook confirmed about the departure and in a statement said: “We can confirm Randi has decided to leave Facebook to start her own company. We are all grateful for her important service.”

Randi Zuckerberg had spent six years at Facebook, becoming Director of Marketing in 2009 and leading the company’s Facebook Live Programs among other social media-ey initiatives.
