Facebook privacy policy has been confusing users for years. But apparently now, even Mark Zuckerberg's family members are scratching their heads.

CNN:
“Co-founder Mark Zuckerberg’s sister says a family photo she posted on facebook was reposted by another woman on Twitter. Randi Zuckerberg called that woman out on Twitter.”


To break it down a bit —  Gizmodo reports— Randi Zuckerberg, Mark’s sister, posted this photo on her Facebook. It’s of her family fooling around with Facebook’s new “poke” app.


Now, follow along closely, as we plunge into the rabbit hole that is social media privacy policy.


Then, as Business Insider reports, Callie Schweitzer, director of marketing and projects at Vox Media, saw the photo in her Facebook timeline because another Zuckerberg sister — who she is friends with — was tagged in it, making it visible to her. Thinking it was posted publicly, Schweitzer then tweeted it out. However, the photo was intended to be private.


And because Schweitzer subscribes to Randi’s public Facebook posts, she thought the pic was meant for public consumption. But according to Buzzfeed, as soon as Randi Zuckerberg saw the picture on Twitter, the confusion was cleared up fairly quickly. She tweeted in response, saying...


“Not sure where you got this photo. I posted it to friends only on FB. You reposting it to Twitter is way uncool.”


That tweet has since been removed and Schweitzer apologized. Now, according to Randi Zuckerberg, here’s the moral of the story:


“Digital etiquette: always ask permission before posting a friend's photo publicly. It's not about privacy settings, it's about human decency.”


Randi says she’s “just sensitive to private photos becoming ‘news’”. Welp, so much for that.
