The score is now 2-1 when it comes to the presence of Zuckerbergs in big tech companies. When it comes to the proliferation of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s family in Silicon Valley tech firms, Google has taken the lead on Facebook. Two of Mark Zuckerberg’s relatives, his sister Arielle and his brother-in-law Harry Schmidt, work for Google. Arielle came on board when Google recently purchased Wildfire, a social media marketing company. Schmidt, no relation to Google founder Eric Schmidt, is married to Donna Zuckerberg, sister to Mark and Arielle.
That’s pretty funny, when you consider just how much Google and Facebook find themselves in competition these days. Still, I imagine it makes for interesting family conversations, though just how high up Arielle Zuckerberg and Harry Schmidt are in Google remains to be seen. I imagine they’re less keyed in to Google’s inner workings than Mark is in Facebook’s day-to-day activities.Technorati Tags: arielle zuckerberg, donna zuckerberg, facebook, family, family ties, google, harry schmidt, mark zuckerberg, more zuckerbergs work for google than facebook, wildfire
