Randi Zuckerberg Leaves Facebook [allthingsd.com]
Randi Zuckerberg, who is director of marketing at Facebook and also the sister of CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg is leaving the company after six years to start a new media firm to help companies become more social.

I hope she will not do something that will compete with Facebook...

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.

Presumably, leaving Facebook will give Zuckerberg greater freedom to work for a range of companies without a conflict. That said, its unlikely shell take on Google+ as a client.

Translation: Facebook has peaked, and I want to be paid handsomely while I'm still regarded highly. I also would rather not work for my brother anymore, since he's kind of a d-bag.

After six years, who could blame her for wanting to try something on her own?

I agree... She needs to grow to. But I am thinking that there might be something wrong with Facebook nowadays that she decided to come out of his brother's wing and have freedom.

I don't think that's necessarily indicative that something is wrong at FB. Six years at a top post at any company is a long time and perhaps it was seen that it was time to get someone else in there or that dept. would stagnate.

Or, maybe she wanted to get out of her brothers shadow, and do her "own thing." Make a name for herself instead of just being "Mark Zuckerberg's" brother.

7 years was the longest I ever managed to stay at one company. By the 6th year it was agony because it stopped being a challenge and I stopped learning.

<------ Wheel did you see what I did?

Founders sister quitting, and plans for an IPO, and everything else put together suggest it is peaking.

That's pretty cool. At least she has her own ambitions.
