Oh, how the mighty tables have turned.
Randi Zuckerberg, older sister of Mark Zuckerberg, was sitting at home with her family, when Mark decided to show everyone his penis using the new Facebook *POKE* app. During this wonderful moment of shock, Randi decided to take a photo and post it on Facebook.
Obsessive tweeter Callie Schweitzer saw this photo and reposted it on the interwebs. Guess who wasn’t happy their personal facebook photo is all over the internet? RANNNNNDIIIIII.
After a little back and forth between Randi and Callie on twitter, Callie apologized, like all marketing professionals would do, and Randi accepted, like all power hungry facebook family members would do. Why someone would have to apologize for posting something someone by accident made public? I have no idea. It’s like when Dick Cheney shot someone’s face off and the guy apologized for being shot. This is exactly like that.
No changes have been made to the Facebook privacy settings or rules since this incident, now that the royal facebook family has been attacked. But Randi did come out with a statement that I am sure will be in the next user agreement.
Digital etiquette: always ask permission before posting a friend’s photo publicly. It’s not about privacy settings, it’s about human decency.
Someone’s never used the internet before.
