Randi Jayne Zuckerberg (born February 28, 1982) is an American businesswoman. She is the former Director of Market Development and Spokeswoman for Facebook, and sister of the company's co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. She is now founder and CEO of Zuckerberg Media and Editor-In-Chief of Dot Complicated, a digital lifestyle website.
Ranked among 50 "Digital Power Players" by the Hollywood Reporter in 2010, Zuckerberg organized and also was a correspondent for the ABC News / Facebook Democratic Party and Republican Party U.S. Presidential primaries debates in 2008 as well as the CNN/Facebook Inauguration Day Partnership in 2009 and Comcast’s Facebook Diaries. Zuckerberg also was a correspondent at both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions for Facebook in 2008. Remaining politically neutral, she told the Wall Street Journal that her Facebook journalist team was treated at the DNC "like rock stars." On the evening of November 2, 2010, Zuckerberg worked at a "town hall" assembled by ABC News as part of its television coverage of U.S. national midterm elections. The full seven hours of this event were webcast in their entirety on both ABC's website and Facebook.
In August 2011 she resigned from Facebook and announced she was starting a new social media firm named "Zuckerberg Media." Since starting Zuckerberg Media, Randi has produced shows and digital content for BeachMint, The Clinton Global Initiative, Cirque du Soleil, the United Nations, Condé Nast and Bravo, and has a wide range of projects in the works. She lives with her husband, Brent, and son, Asher, in Silicon Valley. In Fall 2013, she released her first books with HarperCollins, an adult non-fiction book also titled Dot Complicated and a children’s picture book called Dot.
