Sister leaves to start a media company- Randi Zuckerberg quits facebook

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's sister Randi Zuckerberg is leaving her position as the social networking site's marketing director and will start own media company. In a letter to Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg she mentioned "I have spent my years at Facebook pouring my heart and soul into innovating and pushing the media industry forward
by introducing new concepts around live, social, participatory viewing that the media industry has since adopted. We have made incredible progress, but there is still much to be done and other ways I can affect change. Now is the perfect time for me to move outside of Facebook to build a company focused on the exciting trends underway in the media industry. I’m proud of what I’ve done here and the people I have had the chance to work with. But I know I’ll be able to do just as much or more for Facebook once I’m on the outside. …I leave with a deep love for Facebook….Be assured I will continue to be a strong, vocal evangelist for the most incredible social platform ever created." The entrepreneur sister turning entrepreneur.
