Randi Zuckerberg, the sister of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, got caught up in a debate about the handling of a private photo posted on the social media site after a family snapshot she thought she had only shared with friends made its way onto Twitter.
The photo showed the Zuckerberg clan joyfully reacting to Facebooks new Poke app.
Zuckerberg, Facebooks former head of marketing, claimed she had only shared the photo with her friends via the social media site.
However the snapshot went public after Callie Schweitzer, a representative for Internet media firm Vox Media, reposted the shot on Twitter.
According to BuzzFeed, early Wednesday morning Schweitzer tweeted: "@randizuckerberg demonstrates her family's response to Poke," and included a link to the picture.
The older Zuckerberg then quickly replied "@cschweitz: Not sure where you got this photo. I posted it only to friends on FB. You reposting it on Twitter is way uncool."
The photo was promptly deleted and Schweitzer apologized, explaining that she had seen the photo on her Facebook newsfeed.
Genuinely sorry but it came up in my feed and seemed public she tweeted.
It was later determined that Schweitzer is Facebook friends with Randi Zuckerbergs sister, who was tagged in the shot, giving her access to the photo.
Zuckerberg, now the executive producer for a Bravo reality show on Silicon Valley, then thanked Schweitzer for the apology and added that she is sensitive to private photos becoming news.
However, she stopped short of citing Facebooks sometimes confusing privacy settings as the reason behind the mix-up.

File this under "You gotta be kidding me!"
Best laugh I’ve had all day!
Facebook has a puke app?
FB isn’t all bad.
The pic of the gun toting security at Sasha and Malia’s school even had an effect on some libs.
>>File this under “You gotta be kidding me!”
My thoughts exactly!
"@cschweitz: Not sure where you got this photo. I posted it only to friends on FB. You reposting it on Twitter is way uncool."It floated out of the sewer. I guess one of your friends didn't like it.
Better yet, file it under, “Who gives a s**t.” If you want your privacy, don’t use Facebook or Twitter, and pay for purchases with cash. Even that is not enough but it is at least a start.
"Way uncool"? She sounds like an 8th grader.
