Randi Zuckerberg was employed at Facebook as director of marketing before she left to found Zuckerberg Media, her production studio. The deal she made with publisher HarperCollins includes the memoir as well as a picture book for children which she will also be writing.

Zuckerberg worked at Facebook for six years and was among the first 25 employees to work at the company.

“I am thrilled to be working with HarperCollins to share some of my own crazy experiences on the front lines of social media and to inspire people of all ages to embrace technology, as well as the new set of social norms that come along with it,” she said in a statement.

The memoir will be titled “Dot Complicated” and will also include extras in its digital format which will be “innovative and engaging interactive components,” according to HarperCollins.

The former marketing director was also an executive producer for a 2012 series which aired on Bravo from November to December titled “Start-Ups: Silicon Valley.”

“Dot Complicated” has a planned release date of Nov. 5. 

One of the most famous books about Facebook was the 2009 book by Ben Mezrich titled “The Accidental Billionaires,” which was written with the help of Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin but without the cooperation of Mark Zuckerberg. “The Accidental Billionaires” later became the basis for the Oscar-nominated movie “The Social Network,” which came out in 2010. Former Facebook worker Katherine Losse also wrote a memoir about her time at the company titled “The Boy Kings,” which came out this past June.
