Mark Zuckerberg's Sister Quits Facebook to Start her own Social Media Venture

Randi Zuckerberg, sister of Facebook.com founder Mark Zuckerberg resigned from the position in Facebook after a long stint as a director of marketing at Facebook. 

This may be a bad sign for the social media giant after the launch of a rising competitor Google plus. Randi Zuckerberg is two years older than Mark Zuckerberg. Randi is the founder of her new organization RtoZ media which will be working with other media houses to help them build programming helpful for making social media supportive platforms. 

Randi was a very famous name in Facebook word and has handled some very big projects such as Facebook Presidential Primary Debate, ABC & Facebook Live Election Night Coverage in 2010 and Davos/Facebook partnership. According to some of the social media experts, this resignation may allow Randi to work indirectly with some of the other social media giants such as twitter and may be Google Plus.

Randi was on maternity leave before sending her resignation. In her massage for the Facebook team, Randi said she is thankful to the strong mentor-ship and guidance she received at Facebook. She said I want to show that you don’t have to be an engineer to become a successful hacker.

Randi has received many awards for her excellent work at Facebook. She was recently nominated for Emmy award. Before joining Facebook, Randi worked for some of the big organizations such as Forbes, hosted some famous TV shows such as Good Morning America. 

Now it will be interesting to see what will be the next move for Randi Zuckerberg because Facebook is facing the competition from twitter and Google plus and if she works with these competitors, Business will become seriously difficult for Facebook.
