Randi Zuckerberg, a Harvard alumni and the former director of market development and spokesperson for Facebook, made a stop at UTEP on Tuesday to talk about the role of media in society’s everyday life.

The inventor of Facebook live explained how popular being connected to a social network, such as Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat is nowadays.

“We don’t have a healthy relationship with technology,” she said.

She explained how society is forgetting their boundaries when it comes to technology, and stressed the need to balance the users overall usage.

Zuckerberg has two books—”Dot” and “Dot Complicated.” Now, she uses “Dot” as a term of the mistreatment of technology.

She is not only the sister of Mark Zuckerberg, but also the founder and CEO of Zuckerberg Media, editor-in-chief of Dot Complicated, and the creator of Dot. Despite her brother’s personal success, she has managed to grow professionally by herself.

This event was open to the public and attendees were able to purchase copies of her books. There was also a book signing section in the schedule, where people could have a conversation and take some pictures with her. The event ended with her singing a Broadway song about technology. Since she acts in “Rock of Ages” on Broadway, her beautiful voice garnered the audience’s attention.
