The younger sister of Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of the social networking site Facebook, is going to work for a rival corporation Google. In her microblog, she talked about the reasons that prompted her to make such a decision.
Ariel Zuckerberg until recently worked at Wildfire Interactive, which was acquired by Google. All Wildfire Interactive staff, including junior manager Ariel, are now being taken over by the giant Google. The deal is worth $ 250 million.
Google literally snatched Wildfire Interactive out from under the nose of a competitor, Facebook. Wildfire Interactive was founded four years ago and is a so-called startup company (a company with a small history of operating activities), it employs 350 people. She belongs to the category of SMM companies (social media marketing) and is engaged in marketing operations, as well as promoting brands on social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and others.
In her blog, Ariel Zuckerberg says that she is going to take part in various investment activities, and her brother Mark's company is not the best place to do this. In another recent post, she discusses the pros and cons of new Facebook designs. Another sister of the founder of the social network - Randy - left her brother's estate a year ago (she was the head of consumer control at Facebook), saying that she intends to create her own company.
The departure of the sisters was not the only staff loss for Facebook. Ethan Bird, Director of Affiliate Programs, and Kitty Mitik, Director of Affiliate Marketing, also left the company. By the way, it was Byrd who stabilized the computer platform, which plays a key role in the Facebook network.
Ariel's sister, Randy, joked that she was embarrassed that more Zuckerberg family members would work at Google than Facebook. Ariel wrote on her blog that she also feels a little uncomfortable, but still the joy of being part of the Google team overpowers other emotions.
