The Social Network

8th December 2010

Mood: Blank

FACEBOOK - Everyone know Facebook, and even some addicted to it....things to do before and after sleep... Ever wonder how "Facebook" came into being, or probably the invention of Facebook? I know some people start to dislike "FB" after they watch this movie "The Social Network". A story about the founders of the social-networking website, Facebook. Please be remind that it is some kind of documentary movie, not kind of blockbuster movie.  The script is great...is all about the invention of FB and all the problems that the creators encountered both before and after FB was created. 

For myself, I love the creator (Mark Zuckerberg) idea, but just wondering if the idea really stolen from someone else...He is such a brilliant genius, create FB within a month! I do really appreciate the creator hard work and do admire him as a great computer programming genius, who bring new entertainment and allowed most of us get in touch with their friends, or even lost friend. But in other views, i dislike FB because the lack of privacy and the power of FB to spread either good news or bad news. Can you imagine FB has the greatest power to spread a news far more faster than media like newspaper and TV? And most important is the impact from it...some considered it as a scary technology!

"The Social Network" is a beautifully made film by David Fincher with a superb screenplay by Aaron Sorkin. For those who haven't watch "The Social Network", let's have a summary of the movie here....

"On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea. In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication. A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history… but for this entrpreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications."

My honest opinion, despite all of the betrayal, court cases and double crossing, i believe no-one really cares about the founding of Facebook, who the idea really came from, as long as they enjoy having fun with it! 

Remember the movie told us that "You Don't Get To 500 Million Friends Without Making a Few Enemies"
