Randi Zuckerberg Snags a Two-Book Deal from HarperCollinsBy: Josh Wolford - February 14, 2013
Randi Zuckerberg, former marketing head at Facebook and sister of CEO Mark Zuckerberg, has just finalized a two-book deal with HarperCollins.
The first book will be called “Dot Complicated,” which happens to be the name of a modern lifestyle newsletter and blog where Zuckerberg serves as the Editor-in-Chief. The other book will be a children’s book exploring some of the same themes.
According to HarperCollins, we should see both books hit the shelves in the Fall.
In the adult nonfiction book Dot Complicated, Zuckerberg will share her personal and professional story and the entrepreneurial journey she has been on through her time at Facebook and beyond, including her work as a television correspondent and producer, balancing her career with motherhood and launching Zuckerberg Media. The book will also address the multifaceted complications of our socially transparent world today, including issues of privacy, social identity, authenticity, crowd sourcing and the future of social change. In an enhanced e-book format, Dot Complicated will feature innovative and engaging interactive components, including a platform for crowd sourced stories and social media integration.
Randi Zuckerberg left Facebook back in 2011 and has since founded her own company Zuckerberg Media.
“Technology has changed virtually every part of our lives, resulting in a modern, digital society that feels a lot like the wild, wild west,” said Randi Zuckerberg. “I am thrilled to be working with HarperCollins to share some of my own crazy experiences on the front lines of social media, and to inspire people of all ages to embrace technology, as well as the new set of social norms that come along with it.”
