Zuckerberg Ticked About Facebook Pic

Dec. 26, 2012

Staff --

Randi Zuckerberg, former director of Facebook, is angry that a friend of her sister reposted a picture of Randi on Facebook without asking permission, according to CNET.

Apparently she thought something she posted on Facebook would just sit there quietly and not pop up in new and interesting places -- and entirely without her control. Zoot allures!

Zuckerberg took her grievance to Twitter, posting: "Digital etiquette: always ask permission before posting a friend's photo publicly. It's not about privacy settings, it's about human decency."

Others suggested that Zuckerberg could show some concern for human decency by not making any more public appearances with her band FeedBag, which some audience members compared to bad karaoke.

Which is both mean and wrong. Zuckerberg has a point. Let's all remember that living human beings are on the other end of tweets, Facebook posts and online forums.

On the other hand, Dan Lyons and readwrite social thinks Randi Zuckerberg ought to stfu, and went ahead and posted the picture she was so peeved about.

Randi Zuckerberg is sister to the social media platform's founder, Mark Zuckerberg.
