    Irony is a dish best served cold. It’s very cold in cyberspace.

  3. zuckerberg looks like an outcast even in his own family.

  4. Kevin Pierce says:

    Can this image now be used to make an ad without compensating the person who posted it?

  5. Cowicide says:

    Does Mark share his enormous wealth with his family?  The overreactions in the picture makes me think so. Must be difficult when even your family is comprised of “yes people”.

    It’s also kinda funny how Randi doesn’t maybe think the problem could have something to do with Facebook’s purposefully confusing, shitty “privacy” settings.

    Is Randi being purposefully obtuse or is she simply dense?

    Yup, it’s happened — I find the reactions to posts about Facebook/Zuckerberg far more nauseating than Facebook/Zuckerberg.

    The main reaction is along the lines of “oh my god, how could his sister not know?!” — which is weird because you’d figure my friend with a mechanic as a brother could fix my car himself, right?

    Reactions to anything Facebook related are the most hyperbolic statements I’ve ever seen in my entire life.

      Its sad that privacy setting have to be compared to mechanics.

    • jimh says:

      You don’t have to be a mechanic to know how to drive, right? I think it’s fair to point out that Ms. Zuckerberg might have known better, and the inherent humor in the fact that someone with that last name is whinging about her online privacy.

      • AwesomeRobot says:

        Hah, good point — probably wasn’t the best comparison. But man do I love car comparisons. 

        My point was that it doesn’t make sense that Zuckerberg’s sister knows anything about Facebook privacy just because her brother created Facebook. Maybe it’s telling that an average person can’t figure it out — but it’s not like she’s a Facebook expert simply through association.

      I think it’s like saying your friend with a car designer for a brother, who works on his staff, should know how to drive your car himself, if you own a car his brother designed.

      Ha, good one!*

      *apologies if you have never heard/seen discussions regarding firearms, religion, medical procedures, and a never-ending supply of ISMs to wit your statement may not in fact be jokey hyperbole itself.

    • C W says:

      Lazy car analogies are way more annoying.

    • Itsumishi says:

      You might expect your friend who runs the books at mechanic shop that his brother works out might know a thing or two about cars though. Not because they’d have to, but simply because they would be surrounded by cars on a daily basis. 

      Randi did work for Facebook. I would assume that almost everyone that works at Facebook would at least be aware of the controversy of Facebook’s privacy settings.

      …you’ve never seen a post about anything Apple-related on a popular site, have you?

  7. Funk Daddy says:

    On my Facebook there is a “Poke” from an acquaintance that is 3-4 years old and unanswered. I guess there is some new version of “Poke”ing to be done now? I will never know.

  8. Silversalty says:

    Pretty cheap insult about “human decency.” Selling the image for profit would seem to meet the standard of “human decency” set by the Zuckerbergs.

    I notice they have a Komondor. It looks a bit short of maturity. That’s about when it decides it’s the alpha and will attack anyone that doubts that sentiment. Fits.

  9. MollyMaguire says:

    Ehmahgerd! Yur purked me!

  10. They would have a labradoodle. Yeesh.

  11. robcat2075 says:

    Poke?  They are that excited about Facebook “Poke”?  Someone explain that to me.

  12. SuperMatt says:

    This is all staged. The photo is clearly an ad for the new “poke” app, and they are pretending that somebody tweeted it without permission in order to get people interested in this “poke” phenomenon.  Nobody looks that astonished unless they’re acting, and you notice that everybody is looking at their phones with great amazement all at the same time.

    This was the ribbon on the icing on the cake. ‘Human decency’ to ask before posting someone’s personal info. From a Zuckerberg!

    • That_Anonymous_Coward says:

      New Headline…
      Randi Zuckerberg admits family not human…
      Just ask the FB user who became the face for the 50 gallon barrel of lube.
