Recently, the sister of Facebook’s founder, Randi Zuckerberg kicked up a melee on the social media when apparently one of her personal photos made its own way to Twitter. Many cited the irony this held for Facebook and its privacy settings. The issue seemed to have settled down now, though.


Leaked photo

Apparently, Randi Zuckerberg originally meant for the photo to be seen only by her friends. However, she either forgot to tweak the privacy settings of the image accordingly or somehow, a friend of one of her friends was able to view it. This person, Callie Schweitzer, then shared the image with her Twitter followers, evidently without meaning any ill intent.

However, Randi Zuckerberg was genuinely offended when she found this out and responded by tweeting, “Not sure where you got this photo. I posted it only to friends on FB. You reposting it on Twitter is way uncool.”

She then dished out another general tweet, stating, “Digital etiquette: always ask permission before posting a friend’s photo publicly. It’s not about privacy settings, it’s about human decency.”

The incident sparked a widespread debate about Facebook’s privacy settings. Everyone could spot the irony in the fact that this time, the affected person was Mark Zuckerberg’s sister. Whereas Randi Zuckerberg didn’t clearly state that the incident happened due to some problem with her photo’s privacy settings, it seems kinda obvious that a person she didn’t mean for to see the photo was able to see it.

After a lot of debate on the social media, things seemed to have settled down. Schweitzer first extended an olive branch by stating, “I’m just your subscriber and this was top of my newsfeed. Genuinely sorry but it came up in my feed and seemed public” and then “fwiw, I thought the photo was incredibly endearing which is why I liked it. We never see humans on the Internet!”

Randi Zuckerberg, too, seems to have learnt a lesson from the whole episode and decided to end it on a good note, stating, “Fwiw, I’ve been exchanging emails w/ @cschweitz & she seems lovely. The silver lining? Glad to see a thoughtful debate on sharing/etiquette.”
