The Social Network.... my review

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 entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications. 

Hmmm.... how do we start this review.  Oh here we go, first question do you have a Facebook account?  I guess with almost 500 million subscribers already in Facebook, 1 in 10 should have a Facebook account worldwide, with the exception of China, which also has their version of Facebook.   I was invited to a sneak preview from NuffNang and was glad to be one of the first to watch it.  

The Social Network, as we all know is about Facebook, how its roots have been implanted into almost every human on the face of the Earth.  There was once Multiply, Friendster and tons of Social networks trying to find their way to the net.  But one stands out, Facebook.  There has been cases filed between the so called makers of Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg.  And as it goes, it all boils down to this. MONEY. 

Why would anyone even be affected by this.  You just have to see, how and why even your best friends can sometimes be your enemy, and that nothing in the world is free. Even an idea.

The next question is.  What is next after Facebook?

"The Social Network" showing tomorrow in all major theaters nationwide.
