TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- Randi Zuckerberg was part of the team that help launch Facebook, and now she's coming to Capital City to talk business and social media as part of the Power Forward Speakers Series.

"I'm so excited about the role of the technology is playing in all of our lives," Zuckerberg told WTXL ABC 27.

For Randi Zuckerberg, media is life.

The 33-year old kicked off her career as part of the original start-up team at Facebook.

She's now hoping to use her experiences from Silicon Valley to teach others about the importance of finding balance in our lives.

"Helping them understand how tech can play a wonderful role in their lives rather then a scary role," said Zuckerberg.

But with great power comes great responsibility... and knowing when - and when not - to share can make all the difference.

"I always want to show both sides. I always want to be fair, and I always want to show what happens when we take technology too far," said Zuckerberg.

Understanding how to use these new tools is key.

Take the upcoming presidential election for instance. Zuckerberg says the way candidates use or choose not to use social media could actually affect the outcome.

"The candidates are going to have to get savvier. They're going to have to realize that every word they utter and everything that they do is going to be immediately broadcast to everyone and dissected over social media," said Zuckerberg.

That's a lesson Zuckerberg says we can all learn, and it's a big part of what she wants to share with the Capital City.

"There's definitely going to be a lot of theater, a lot of drama, and maybe even some singing so we're going to make social media and business really fun," said Zuckerberg of her upcoming presentation in Tallahassee.

The Power Forward Series is brought to you by the First Commerce Credit Union along with the FSU College of Business.
