Google acquired Wildfire this week. It’s a social media marketing platform company, but Google also snagged a couple of Zuckerbergs along with the rest of the team. One is Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s sister Arielle, and the other, while not technically a Zuckerberg, is in Zuck’s family as well. That would be Harry Schmidt, who’s married to another of Mark’s sisters.
With Google and Facebook becoming increasingly competitive over the years, it makes for a fun situation for onlookers. Arielle, who was actually away in Israel when the announcement came out, is having some fun with it as well.
In the comments of one of her Facebook posts, she shares a link showing that she has now become part of the YOLO (You Only Live Once) meme, thanks to the acquisition. The link was to the What Should We Call Social Media Tumblr, who posted the following GIF with the caption: “When Google Acquired Wildfire”.
Ariel from the Little Mermaid. Get it?
“This is hilarious,” Arielle Zuckerberg said, sharing the link with her Facebook followers.
Earlier in the conversation, Schmidt noted, “We’ll be awkward together, it’ll be totally awesome.”
