The little sister of Mark Zuckerberg, Arielle, is currently visiting Israel. According to her Facebook status, she is taking part in 'Taglit'- Birthright Israel, which provides the gift of educational, first-time trips to Israel for Jewish young adults ages 18 to 26. During her visit, she met with Israel's President Shimon Peres earlier today
In the past, Arielle famously refused to work at the family business which happens to be the biggest social network in the world. Instead, she became one of 350 employees of Wildfire, an analytic company that provides services to social media. Yesterday (Tuesday), it was officially announced that Google will be buying 'Wildlife' for $250 million, so it makes Arielle an official employee of Google. "There's now officially more Zuckerbergs in Google than in Facebook," big sister Randi wrote in her status report, referring to the husband of their fourth sister, Donna, who also works at Wildfire. Arielle, who refuses to give interviews, discovered she's now a Google employee during her stay in Israel and wrote in her status report: "Not gonna lie... This feels pretty awkward."
Shimon Peres has posted on his Facebook page: “I greatly respect the Zuckerberg family not only for their creativity but also for the strong tradition which is firmly in their hearts,” he said. “I am proud of Arielle, all her friends who have come with her to Israel and all the participants who take part in Taglit-Birthright.”
