Zuckerberg Family Feud: Two Relatives Of Facebook's CEO Now Work At Google

The Zuckerberg clan has been split in two by Google’s acquisition of Wildfire Interactive, one of Facebook’s top marketing partners.

Google and Facebook are fierce competitors in the social arena. So it’s already awkward for Facebook that Google now controls a tool that brands use to manage their Facebook pages.

But it’s even more awkward on a personal level. That’s because not one but two of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s close relatives work at Wildfire.

His youngest sister, Arielle, works for Wildfire as a junior product manager.

And his brother-in-law, Harry Schmidt, who’s married to Mark’s sister, Donna, works as a product strategist there. He joined last November—a few months after Arielle started there.

We know this because Mark’s older sister, Randi, pointed it out on Twitter:

Congrats Wildfire! There are officially now more Zuckerberg family members working for Google than Facebook! #awkward ;)

Arielle, who’s currently travelling in Israel, agreed with Randi’s assessment:

“Not gonna lie… This feels pretty awkward.”
