Like many Facebook users, Randi Zuckerberg, the sister of Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, seems to be confused about the social-networking giant's privacy policies.

Randi Zuckerberg, the former head of marketing for Facebook, posted a photo early Wednesday to Facebook of the Zuckerberg family trying out Poke, the latest app from the developers of Facebook. The snap shows the family each holding a cell phone, laughing at the app, as well as Mark Zuckerberg in the corner with a bemused expression. (There are also green onions on the counter, ready for dicing, and a fluffy, white, nonchalant dog to the side.)

So when Twitter user Callie Schweitzer, with her nearly 40,000 followers, posted the pic to Twitter, Randi Zuckerberg’s reaction was a little surprising.

"@cschweitz not sure where you got this photo. I posted it on FB. You reposting it to Twitter is way uncool," Randi Zuckerberg tweeted to the media professional.

Schweitzer, who had snagged the picture from Facebook, replied, "@randizuckerberg I'm just your subscriber and this was top of my newsfeed. Genuinely sorry but it came up in my feed and seemed public."

Randi Zuckerberg later  told Schweitzer that the only reason she could see the photo was because she was friends with Zuckerberg’s sister. The conversation has since been deleted.

Many social media users are enjoying the irony of Mark Zuckerberg’s own sister not getting the online privacy she thought she would when posting the photo. She later accepted an apology from Schweitzer.

Randi Zuckerberg tweeted later in the day: "Digital etiquette: always ask permission before posting a friend's photo publicly. It's not about privacy settings, it's about human decency," and follow it up with: “‏Apparently, the topic of online etiquette elicits passion, debate, anger & Twitter crazies. Guess I just found the topic of my next TV show!”
