Google Acquires Mark Zuckerberg’s Sister

As previously reported, Google has acquired social media marketing platform company Wildfire.

Business Insider has brought it to the public’s attention that Wildfire just happens to employ Arielle Zuckerberg (pictured), sister of Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. That’s pretty interesting, considering that Google and Facebook are direct competitors in a variety of ways.

Arielle has not been shy about criticizing things about Facebook in the past. Here’s a blog post from September in which she pointed out some Facebook changes that she liked and some that she did not. No big deal. Just kind of funny.

Arielle is a product manager at Wildfire. She joined last year. She’s been pretty active on Facebook, but doesn’t appear to have a Google+ account. That is far greater a criticism of Google’s social product, I would think, than anything she’s had to say about Facebook. It will be interesting to see if that changes.

The company says Wildfire will continue to operate as usual, and there will be no changes to its service or customer support.

    Change the title. Sounds like human slavery.

    “Chris Crum’s mother bought by Google” – doesn’t sound nice, does it?

    When I visited the link, I thought you were talking about Randi Zuckerberg. Anyhow, I don’t think its an issue for either Facebook or Google as she is not directly linked to any.

    Btw, catchy title 😀

    Hey Derp – you are part of the de-evolution of Man as a functioning species. Congrats

      Thank you sir. I’m sure both the world and I are looking forward to see what the next de-evoluted generation will be like.

      But before I get busy with your mom to move forward (or backwards perhaps) with that next generation, I think we can get a pretty good idea of what it will look like by having a glimpse at you.

      To make things easier to swallow for you – she’s not doing it for free. I acquired her.

      To quote my ancestor: “Ooh ooh ooh… AAH! AAH! AAAAAH”.

    She’s much hotter than her pimply-faced dork of a brother.
