Randi Zuckerberg — Internet entrepreneur and sister of Mark — discussed during a conference in Australia things not to do on Facebook, from bragging about your accomplishments and taking pictures of food to posting about your cats.
According to the Melbourne-based Herald Sun, Zuckerberg offered tips on what people should avoid doing on social media sites that could prevent them from growing their networks. Also on her list: posting cheesy motivational posters, humble bragging and depressing messages about being tired, sick or stuck in traffic.
Zuckerberg is the former chief marketing officer at Facebook, but left the company last August to pursue other projects. She is an executive producer for Silicon Valley, a Bravo reality TV show that follows inspiring entrepreneurs in the tech industry.
Hinting at sibling rivalry, Randi told conference attendees that she was reluctant to join Facebook in its early start up days. Her brother even sought help from their mother to help convince her to join.
“I graduated from Harvard University in 2003 and the only reason that I mention that is that I have a sibling who did not graduate. So I always have to take that one,” she said.
Randi and Mark aren’t the only Zuckerbergs in tech. Their youngest sibling Arielle is now a Google employee, following a recent acquisition the search engine giant made of Wildfire Interactive, a social media management company.
