Randi Zuckerberg, the former marketing director of Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg‘s sister, was not happy at the end of her Christmas day.

A photo she posted to her Facebook account of her family, including the Facebook CEO, playing around with Facebook’s new Poke app, ended up on Twitter.

The photo was tweeted by Callie Schweitzer, a marketing executive at Vox Media, when she thought that it was a public photo on Facebook. Schweitzer followed or subscribed to Zuckerberg’s public Facebook feed and thought the update was public.

But it wasn’t. According to Buzzfeed and Zuckerberg’s tweets, Schweitzer was friends with another one of the Zuckerberg sisters and because she was tagged she was able to see it. “.@randizuckerberg demonstrates her family’s response to Poke #GAH,” Schweitzer tweeted along with the photo.

It didn’t take long for Randi Zuckerberg to respond. “Not sure where you got this photo. I posted it to friends only on FB. You reposting it to Twitter is way uncool,” she said on Twitter. Schweitzer clarified that she thought it was public, apologized and removed the photo promptly. Of course, this is the Internet —  the photo wasn’t removed entirely. Many web sites, including BuzzfeedBusiness InsiderMashable and Gizmodo all ran the photo.VentureBeat even said even Zuckerbergs are tripped up by Facebook’s privacy settings.

However, Zuckerberg tweeted that “it’s not about privacy settings, it’s about human decency.”ht randi zuckerberg tweet lpl 121226 wblog Zuckerbergs Sister Unhappy When Facebook Photo Goes Public

The snafu does illustrate something Facebook has started highlighting in its recent privacy controls overhaul — that your Timeline is separate than other places on Facebook and that tagged photos can still be viewed by others. Starting last Friday, Facebook rolled out its redesigned and cleaner privacytools. One of the additions included educational messages, which pop up when you untag a photo. The message tells users that the photo still might be visible by others.

AllThingD’s Mike Issac argues though that this has nothing to do with Facebook privacy settings, but rather bad judgement. “No matter how many privacy settings you tweak, no matter what you consider proper ‘digital etiquette,’ there is no accounting for the taste and discretion of your friends,” Issac wrote.

In Zuckerberg’s case, it’s hard to say where the blame should be put, but unfortunately for her, the photo is now visible to many, many others.

OCTOBER 26, 2012             2:44 PM

In 2010, a New York entrepreneur made an explosive legal claim: An agreement that he had with Facebook’s founder, Mark Zuckerberg, entitled him to a major stake in the social-networking giant.

Mr. Zuckerberg staunchly denied the allegation, and his lawyers insisted that the entrepreneur, Paul Ceglia, was a scam artist.

On Friday, federal authorities sided with Mr. Zuckerberg, arresting Mr. Ceglia and charging him with a multibillion dollar scheme to defraud Facebook.

Prosecutors say that Mr. Ceglia, 39, of Wellsville, N.Y., filed a sham federal lawsuit claiming to have been promised a 50 percent share of Facebook, and then doctored, fabricated and destroyed evidence to support his allegations.

“Ceglia’s alleged conduct not only constitutes a massive fraud attempt, but also an attempted corruption of our legal system through the manufacture of false evidence,” said Preet Bharara, the United States attorney in Manhattan. “Dressing up a fraud as a lawsuit does not immunize you from prosecution.”

Mr. Ceglia is expected to make an appearance in federal court in Buffalo on Friday afternoon. His lawyer, Dean Boland, did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment.

The improbable claims made by Mr. Ceglia received outsized attention in part because it came at around the same time as the release of “The Social Network,” the Academy Award-winning film that told the tale of Mr. Zuckerberg’s legal battle with his Harvard schoolmates, the Winklevoss twins, over the origins of Facebook. Mr. Zuckerberg paid the Winklevosses at least $65 million to settle their case.

Since the lawsuit was first filed, Facebook’s lawyers have raised questions about Mr. Ceglia’s credibility. In 1997, he pleaded guilty to possessing hallucinogenic mushrooms. And in 2010, the New York State attorney general criminally charged him with defrauding customers in a now-defunct wood pellet manufacturing business that he had run with his wife.

Questions are now also being raised about the lawyers that represented Mr. Ceglia in his lawsuit.

In his original complaint, filed in 2010, Mr. Ceglia was represented by Paul Argentieri, a sole practitioner in upstate New York. An amended lawsuit was filed in April 2011 by Robert W. Brownlie of DLA Piper, the world’s largest law firm, andDennis C. Vacco, a former New York attorney general now in private practice at Lippes Mathias Wexler Friedman in Buffalo.

In 2011, Mr. Brownlie of DLA Piper declined a request by The New York Times to produce the original documents backing his client’s legal claims. “That will come out during the course of litigation,” Mr. Brownlie said. “Anyone who claims this case is fraudulent and brought by a scam artist will come to regret those claims.”

Yet court records indicate that another law firm, Kasowitz Benson Friedman & Torres, had been hired by Mr. Ceglia before DLA Piper and Lippes Mathias becoming involved. Kasowitz Benson withdrew from the case and put DLA Piper and Lippes Mathias on notice that it had determined that the purported contract was a fraud.

Mr. Brownlie and Mr. Vacco later withdrew from the case. They did not return calls and e-mails seeking comment.

Mr. Ceglia’s alleged plot dates back to 2003, when Mr. Zuckerberg was a student at Harvard University. Mr. Ceglia had placed an advertisement on Craigslist looking for a programmer for an Internet business he was trying to get off the ground. Mr. Zuckerberg responded to the ad, and Mr. Ceglia agreed to pay him $1,000 for his work.

Months later, in his college dorm room, Mr. Zuckerberg started a business called Facebook.

Mr. Zuckerberg did not hear from Mr. Ceglia again until 2010, when he was served with a complaint that claimed Mr. Ceglia was entitled to an 84 percent ownership stake in Facebook.

According to the lawsuit, Mr. Zuckerberg had promised him a substantial interest in either “The Face Book” or “The Page Book.” Attached to the legal papers was a contract that contained language giving Mr. Ceglia an interest in Mr. Zuckerberg’s start-up. The filing also included e-mail exchanges between Mr. Ceglia and Mr. Zuckerberg that purported to show their collaboration on ideas for the social network business.

Federal prosecutors say that Mr. Ceglia’s claims were entirely false. Government investigators searched Mr. Ceglia’s hard drive and discovered the original contract, which had no reference to Facebook. And Harvard’s e-mail servers had no record of the supposed e-mails.

Facebook’s lawyers at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher commended the Justice Department for filing criminal charges and, in statement, indicated that it would pursue possible claims against the lawyers that represented Mr. Ceglia.

“Ceglia used the federal court system to perpetuate his fraud and will now be held accountable for his criminal scheme,” said Orin Snyder, a partner at Gibson Dunn. “Facebook also intends to hold accountable all of those who assisted Ceglia in this outrageous fraud.”

October 5, 2012

Facebook may have a billion users worldwide, but hardly any of them are in Russia — though founder Mark Zuckerberg aims to change that. But it won’t be easy: the world’s biggest social network isn’t used to being the underdog.

Zuckerberg visited Moscow this week to help host an event where developers put together apps over just six hours. The ability to play games and listen to music is, of course, a big draw on Facebook, but Russian-language content is lacking.

That’s not surprising when one considers there are only 3.5 million users in the country of 143 million. Developers and new users are both drawn to where the people already are online: Russia’s leading social networks, VKontakte and Odnoklassniki. Combined, the two sites have more than 10 times Facebook’s Russian users. This puts Facebook in the awkward position of having to scramble for users — something it hasn’t had to do for years.

The outlook is good, though: Much of Russia is still offline, meaning there’s lots of room for growth. If Facebook can entice just some of the new Internet users to join up, that could be the answer to their problems in that country. But making those users choose Facebook instead of the popular competition will be hard.

That’s why Zuckerberg and the company are working hard at making their network more Russia-friendly. They’re hoping that a smash hit, like Zynga’s Farmville and the Spotify music service in the U.S., will make users join up and stay put.

It has been a busy couple of days for Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook.

On Friday Mr. Zuckerberg took his 8-year-old company public at a $100 billion valuation.

If that wasn’t enough, on Saturday, the 28-year-old multi-billionaire announced that he had married his long-term girlfriend, Priscilla Chan. The announcement was made, of course, on Facebook.

Details of the ceremony were scarce, but according the Associated Press, “The ceremony took place in Zuckerberg’s backyard before fewer than 100 guests.”

Mr. Zuckerberg did not wear his traditional hoodie for the ceremony, but instead chose a black suit and tie with a white shirt.

The couple met almost a decade ago, while attending college at Harvard University.

Citing a source close to the couple, the A.P. also the ring given to Ms. Chan featured “a very simple ruby.”

May 17, 2012         6:16 p.m.

Wall Street has one simple task as Facebook Inc. shares begin trading: Don’t mess it up.
Major stock exchanges, brokerage firms and mutual fund companies have been gearing up for one of the biggest initial public offerings on record. And, with all the hype surrounding the social-media giant, any snafus would be a major embarrassment.”
It has to go off without a hitch. There’s going to be a lot of visibility on this,” said Larry Tabb, chief executive of the TABB Group consulting and research firm. “If this goes poorly, it will not just be a poor reflection on Nasdaq — it will be a poor reflection on the U.S. market structure.”

In pricing its stock at $38 on Thursday, Facebook raised $16 billion in the third-biggest IPO in U.S. history and the largest ever by a tech company. The stock trades as FB.

The company is expected to sell an additional $2.4 billion in stock later this month, raising the total value to $18.4 billion. That would make it the second-largest U.S. IPO, trailing only the $19.65 billion raised by Visa Inc. in 2008.

The IPO values Facebook at $104 billion, by far the largest ever for a newly public company.

Facebook shares are scheduled to begin trading at 11 a.m. Eastern time, 90 minutes after the Nasdaq Stock Market opens. The late start is designed to give the stock exchange and Wall Street brokerage firms sufficient time to process what is expected to be a crush of opening-day orders.

At center stage is the Nasdaq, considered to be the world’s premier home for technology companies. The exchange has been testing various scenarios for how the stock will open, checking its systems through a dummy ticker — ZWZZT — to allow clients to practice processing their orders.

Glitches do happen. In April, when software developer Splunk Inc. went public on the Nasdaq, the price soared so high the exchange halted trading. However, trading reportedly continued elsewhere, leading to canceled trades.

The biggest blunder happened in March when BATS Global Markets, an electronic trading platform, suffered a trading debacle. A software glitch sabotaged the company’s own IPO, which sent the stock plummeting and forced it to cancel the offering altogether.

BATS has been in talks with Nasdaq about the Facebook IPO, but hasn’t participated in any of the tests. However, clients have been routing test orders of Facebook through the exchange, spokeswoman Stacie Fleming said.

Meanwhile, the New York Stock Exchange is making sure it is ready for the crush of new shares that will be dumped into the market Friday. The Big Board has dedicated a server just for Facebook trading that will be done on the NYSE Euronext Inc.’s all-electronic Arca exchange.

“We’re fully prepared,” NYSE spokesman Rich Adamonis said.

Tabb said myriad problems could arise, though he predicted high volume wouldn’t be one.

Buyers and sellers may not get access to the stock, he said, because market data feeds connecting all the exchanges could hit a snag, trading algorithms may not be properly tuned, or a server could crash.

“If there’s a problem it’ll be a technology glitch,” Tabb said.

Brokerages are getting ready to field phone calls from customers who want Facebook shares — and potentially upset clients who didn’t get as large of an IPO allotment as they wanted.

Fidelity Investments in Boston, one of the country’s largest retail brokerages, has employees on standby to deal with high customer demand, spokesman Steve Austin said.

Wall Street might spend the remaining few hours before Facebook’s public debut worrying about what might go wrong. But there’s a decidedly different atmosphere on the West Coast at Facebook’s Menlo Park headquarters.

Hundreds of employees spent Thursday in a “hackathon” — an all-night work session for programmers and engineers.

Even founder Mark Zuckerberg was expected to attend the event — until he rings the Nasdaq’s opening bell.
