Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's sister has joked that with Google’s acquisition of the social media marketing firm Wildfire, there are now more Zuckerbergs working at the Internet search giant than at the social networking company.

“There are officially now more Zuckerberg family members working for Google than Facebook! #awkward,” Randi Zuckerberg tweeted.

Randi’s tweet came as her sister Arielle Zuckerberg is now an employee of the rival firm Google, which announced the acquisition of California-based Wildfire, the New York Daily News reports.

Arielle, one of Mark Zuckerberg''s three sisters, had recently joined Wildfire as a product manager.

According to the report, there was no immediate comment on how many of those employees will be making the jump, but Arielle Zuckerberg confirmed she would be one of them in a post on Facebook.

She even hinted the move might cause some sibling rivalry, the paper said.

“Not gonna lie ... This feels pretty awkward,” she wrote after the news was announced, revealing she was on a trip to Israel when she got the news.
