Funny Story: Google just picked up Wildfire, the social networking analytics company for a reported $250 million.

As BI notes, one of those Wildfire employees that will be integrated into Google is Zuck’s sister, Arielle. Clearly, there might be some issues with hiring the sister of who founded Google’s major competitor. But, these things happen.

Arielle Zuckerberg is a junior product manager at Wildfire, and she maintains a blog where she even critiques Facebook on its design.

It will be very interesting to see if she joins Google with her colleagues.
