Randi Zuckerberg, former Facebook executive, author and Broadway singer, will speak at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, in the Gallogly Events Center.

The sister of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and the social media company's former director of market development, will discuss how social media and technology influence lives.

Her comments will be based on her New York Times best-seller, "Dot Complicated: Untangling Our Wired Lives," and will blend her experiences with Facebook, as an author and as a singer in the Broadway musical, "Rock of Ages."

Tickets are $2 for students, faculty, staff and active-duty military at the University Center information desk. For all others, tickets cost $5 and are available at http://www.ticketswest.com.

Zuckerberg, 32, was ranked among 50 "Digital Power Players" by the Hollywood Reporter. She founded Zuckerberg Media and works as its chief executive officer. The company has produced digital content for The Clinton Global Initiative, Cirque du Soleil, the United Nations, Conde Nast and Bravo. She also is editor-in-chief of a digital lifestyle website called Dot Complicated.

Zuckerberg was a political correspondent for Presidential primary debates in 2008 for ABC News/Facebook and for both Republican and Democrat National Conventions.

In "Rock of Ages," a Tony Award-nominated musical that celebrates rock music of the 1980s, she plays the role of city planner Regina, whose numbers include Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It" and Jefferson Starship's "We Built This City."

The event is part of the Significant Speakers Series offered by the UCCS Office of Student Activities and Residence Life and Housing.
