ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Buzzfeed's Jack Moore posts a Zuckerberg family photo, made public after Randi Zuckerberg forgets how Facebook works.
I like that pic uses the GTA font.
Irony is a dish best served cold. It’s very cold in cyberspace.
Not only served cold, but with a huge amount of salt. Apparently it’s very bland in cyberspace.
zuckerberg looks like an outcast even in his own family.
He’s got that, “Plebs; you are amused by the simplest things.” look going on, that combined with a hint of surprise. (Surprised that people find the “poke” app that god damn funny.)
He looks more comfortable at a shirtless bear convention, in this photo that was oopsidentally posted by FB’s Director of Engineering.
Bear? He bear-ly rates otterhood.
Give him five more years.
Can this image now be used to make an ad without compensating the person who posted it?
Pay me $100 and I’ll show the ad to my friends for you, let you know how it went.
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?
Oof, good point about the horribleness of even your family being on the “yes” bandwagon. I’m amazed he’s kept as sane as he has, or appears.
Dude. You can project that from just a single photo?
They’re just your typical well-off Westchester family: http://nymag.com/news/features/zuckerberg-family-2012-5/
All the time, ‘pal’.
EMERGERHD FERCEBERD ERP!
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.
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.
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.
Well, she was the marketing director for facebook, so she’s not exactly an outsider.
People are derp missing this point and the big one about her basically saying F your privacy. Karma.
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.
“Reactions to anything Facebook related are the most hyperbolic statements I’ve ever seen in my entire life.”
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.
Lazy car analogies are way more annoying.
Incorrect and inaccurate ones are SUPER annoying.
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?
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.
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.
Ehmahgerd! Yur purked me!
They would have a labradoodle. Yeesh.
Poke? They are that excited about Facebook “Poke”? Someone explain that to me.
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.
I know Callie personally… and… what if it’s true! OMG, defriended.
This how conspiracy theories get started. It’s the phenomenon Cecil Adams of straightdope.com once referred to as something like “Grrrr, Monsanto!” No standard of evidence is needed, because gosh, it just SOUNDS like something The Enemy would do.
(If you’re kidding around, my apologies. I’ve just been reading partisan political snipes all day and I’m tired of fakey little “gotchas” substituting for evidence-based criticism.)
Yeah its not the first time that Zuckerberg has leaked innocuous photos on FB, framed so as to reinforce his pubic persona. He is even in costume.
This was my initial thought too.
This was the ribbon on the icing on the cake. ‘Human decency’ to ask before posting someone’s personal info. From a Zuckerberg!
Randi Zuckerberg admits family not human…
Just ask the FB user who became the face for the 50 gallon barrel of lube.
