Google’s acquisition of Wildfire Interactive, one of Facebook’s top marketing partners, is awkward for the social network on a business level.But it’s even more awkward on a personal level.

That’s because one of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s three sisters, Arielle, works for Wildfire as a junior product manager.

So she’s soon going to be a Google employee, working to undermine her brother’s dominance in the social sphere.

We hear Mark tried to get Arielle to join Facebook. Unlike their older sister Randi, who succumbed to Mark’s entreaties and ran consumer marketing for Facebook for years before recently striking out on her own, Arielle decided to set an independent course from the get-go.
