Facebook Movie – “The Social Network”

23 Aug

The tagline for the new movie, “The Social Network”, which is being released in theatres on October 1st, is “You don’t get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies” and it fits perfectly! The movie which is based on the creation of Facebook, which has become an evolution in the idea or practice of social media, will tell a story of the struggle that the Harvard undergrad, Mark Zuckerberg, had to go through in order to create and maintain such a powerful website. Below is the link to the movie so you can check it out for yourself:

It is evident that Facebook has been a huge movement in the revolution of the internet and social media. In my opinion Facebook incorporates every aspect that the internet has to offer; such as messaging/emailing, photo/video sharing, networking and instant chat to name the top uses. Facebook has also been an influence to many other websites, such as Twitter or LinkedIn which are used by so many people on a daily basis. It is excellent that a movie was produced as to how it came to be and hopefully this movie will inspire people to learn about social networking beyond the simple use of it and branch out to the effects and influences it has on the society around them.

With Love,

Christie
