Bangalore: An interesting and awkward news came out from the Silicon Valley, that Zuckerberg’s sister Arielle is now an employee of Google. This happened when Google acquired Wildfire where Arielle held the post of Junior Product Manager. Wildfire Interactive is a Redwood City, California-based company, which helps marketers engage their audiences using social media.
Zuckerberg’s elder sister Randi Zuckerberg, who once worked at Facebook, tweeted “Congrats Wildfire! There are officially now more Zuckerberg family members working for Google than Facebook! #awkward ;)”. It indicates that possibly another member of their family is a Google employee.
Google product management director Jason Miller wrote on the company’s blog, “Wildfire is a platform for brands to manage their pages, apps, tweets, videos, sponsorships, ads, promotions and more, all in one place. We’re looking forward to creating new opportunities for our clients to engage with people across all social services.
It is still not confirmed whether all of Wildfire’s 400 employees would be joining the company following the acquisition or not.
