Private Zuckerberg Family Photo Pops Up Publicly on Facebook; Apparently Nobody is Safe
So it turns out that not even the Zuckerberg clan is immune from embarrassing private photos popping up publicly on Facebook. Somehow that doesn’t make me feel any better though.The photo, an image that Mark Zuckerberg’s
sister posted to her private Facebook
account, is of the Zuckerberg family standing in their kitchen, reacting to a new “poking” app Facebook is gearing up to release.Randi Zuckerberg, former Head of Marketing for Facebook, and currently a producer for a Silicon Valley reality show, posted the picture to her Facebook, only to have it republished for the entire world by a friend of her sister.
While Mark has so far been mum about the “security breach,” Randi was outraged, taking to her Twitter to announce, “@cschweitz not sure where you got this photo. I posted it to friends only on FB. You reposting it to Twitter is way uncool.”
Callie Schweitzer, the reposter in question, got the photo because Randi tagged her sister in the post, and it popped up on Callie’s feed. Callie apologized for the error and deleted the photo, which has since calmed Randi down. But the internet still has the photo for all time and it’s hopefully lesson learned for all parties involved. Will it happen again? Hell yeah. Lets just hope the photo next time is a bit more lascivious.
Your move, Facebook.
