Facebook is Shaping the Future
Facebook is one of the most popular social-networking sites in history. While it may have benefits such as connecting with friends, it also has very negative effects on our society. Facebook may be perceived as an enjoyable social networking website, but the addictions that sometimes arise from overuse of Facebook, will later generate fatal effects and change society greatly. Facebook is changing our society vastly and somebody has to step in and stop it before it’s to late or where all done. Facebook if not ended, is gonna shape the world in 25 years like nobody has ever wanted it to be, from violence to death rates going up, Facebook is going to be the new government of the United States if not World power.
Facebook is changing our society as every day goes on. The more and more people that keep creating accounts on Facebook, are just allowing Facebook to just keep getting stronger and stronger, and eventually, they will have power like you wouldn’t believe. Right now Facebook has had people kill themselves due to bullying, has started riots, and revolutions over the world, and the more we keep feeding into there scheme, the more they rub off it. So overall, one day of no users going on the addicting site, will have Facebook done with forever. But if not, than 25 years down the road, will not be pretty at all, because Facebook will gain more power as those years go on, and eventually Facebook could become the new government of the United States. So in the end, who is gonna be that person to stop this billion dollar site?
Another issue that Facebook does not really care about, is privacy. Privacy is a huge concern on many social networking site’s like Facebook. Most people want to keep there information private. In addition, privacy issues have to be controlled or someone needs to step in, due to these issues are very important to parents in society, in which there children are being targeted by people who wish to exploit or abuse them. So in the end, privacy is a huge example on which why Facebook needs to end, because eventually the site will start leaking information, and people will start getting targeted.
Essentially, the Social Network really changes the perspective of how people think about Facebook, and truly show’s them how sicking Facebook is.
The Social Network really demonstrates what the true Facebook is about, which to me, is making money and becoming the site who has the most power. Some of the hidden costs of Facebook is how they basically capture the minds of millions of viewers and basically brain wash them with there site. Many people use Facebook for hours playing games, creeping on people, and many other things, and that’s why somebody has to put a stop to it before it get’s to out of hand. On the flip side though, Facebook allows you to connect with your friends, and find out what people are doing, and also allows you to get the inside scoop. But the way I feel is, how about you get off your ass, and call the person and meet up with them face to face, instead of talking between a 4x4 box. People are loosing there social skills outside of a computer screen, and it really needs to come to a close.
The Social Network movie though, really captures how sicking Facebook is, and how it started. The movie really captures how Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg is dumped by his girlfriend and due to that, goes crazy, and starts one of the biggest social networking sites in history. First Zuckerberg start’s a website called Facemash which allows users to rate the attractiveness of female students on the campus. After Facemash, Mark approached his friend Eduardo Saverin and tells him of the great idea called thefacebook. Eduardo agrees to help and provides Mark with $1,000 to get the site up and going. Along the way Mark meets Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss and they invite Mark to their private club, where Mark agrees to due the job as a programmer for a proposed dating site called the Harvard Connection. Feeling’s get mixed though, when the Winklevoss twins learn about the launch of TheFacebook. Eduardo and Mark later down the road arrange a meeting with Napster co-founder Sean Parker, and Sean presents a vision for Facebook that Mark fall’s in love with. The comment that Mark fell in love with, was drop the “the” in the facebook. Sean later suggest that they move the company to Palo Alto while Eduardo remains in New York seeking advertising support. Sean than promises to expand Facebook to two continents, and later Mark invites Sean to live at the house, aka company headquarters. But than Facebook expand, and when Eduardo visit’s the new headquarters, he signed a deal with Sean’s investors without knowing, that allowed them to dilute his share of the company from 34 percen

The Social Network
We live in a world of technology, ruled and run by technological devices. Cell phones, computers, and electronic books. That’s what the world has come to, but Facebook is one of the biggest chapters in technology that has shifted culture so drastically. Facebook.com, a social networking site has completely altered the way people communicate and the way they share things with others.
More people are communicating with others with out leaving their houses and are able to keep in touch or be found where ever they go. Sharing updates about their days or pictures, even personal information. Relationship status, workplace, phone number, and e-mail are a few things Facebook users share with their friends online and even some strangers depending on privacy settings. Although, privacy seems irrelevant when sharing a lot with just one page and pictures “friends” can see. Imagining 25 years from now, there could be two possible outcomes for social networking. It could either get more popular with each generation to come, and have Facebook advance with each year. Having Facebook become the main stream for everyone’s communication and social life. Or it could slowly diminish and social networking sites could become less popular. Living in a generation of instant gratification, it is almost impossible to say what the future outcome of Facebook could be. People could be waiting for the next “big thing” to come out and Facebook is just a distraction until then.
A very big distraction at that, taking a lot for the makers and employees to get something this big to launch and succeed. During production, the only money invested into the Facebook website were the founders $19,000 to get things started. They needed computers, technology in order to “wire in” and code for the website. They needed a place to work and countless hours of work to fund such a project. It seems as though all of that work paid off, as the founders Mark Zuckerberg and Eduardo Saverin wreak the benefits of their society altering website. A website that has taken off and is in sync with todays technological times. Which could be what set off the idea to create a movie about Zuckerberg and Saverin’s journey through the creation of Facebook.
The Social Network was a movie of how Facebook was founded, but that wasn’t the only thing the movie focused on. This movie seems to be more about a friendship between to close friendship that deteriorates through a rigorous process of creating a company. On the cover of The Social Network’s movie case reads “ You don’t get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies.” Front and center, two best friends who sacrifice their relationship in the making of a billion dollar empire. Behind the scenes of invention, the movie showed a rise in tension between these two friends once girls and popularity seemed to play a role in the their lives. As more things started to creep into their relationship like advertising, partying, and Sean Parker it wedged a bigger void between the two. The whole movies purpose was to analyze and depict the conflict between Zuckerberg and Saverin from the day Facebook was started to the lawsuit Eduardo Saverin filed against Zuckerberg in order to take back a part of his share. Facebook.com was just a catalyst between the two main characters and not a major theme in the movie. The second largest theme in the movie could have been how fame and fortune end up in corruption. How the movie oversaw the transition of an intelligent Harvard student who seemed to have an issue in communicating with people and no problems at all navigating through computers. From the opening scene Mark’s character was identified clearly and so was his social status. Once theFacebook.com came into play he began to attract more and more attention to himself and his characters attitude seemed to amplify and his goals might have shifted, but Facebook was depicted as his first and only priority. When Mark moved to Palo Alto, California his character started to form into a careless and assertive person. Contradicting his former attitude portrayed in the beginning of the movie. After the major investment Peter Teal made into Facebook it seemed to trigger Mark’s character into this “I’m CEO, Bitch” persona. Leading to the depletion of his best friends share. Classic Hollywood move, fame and fortune lead to betrayal and a knife in the back.
Social networking sites as popular as Facebook is the most relevant thing in time today. Culture revolves around it; everyone is involved in it and wants to learn about it. This is the generation of the technologically advanced, and a more hi-tech society. Driven by phones, computers, social networks, movies, and the Facebook. No one can predict the future but, it could be possible that society&
society’s need for technology and everlasting need to communicate and share just escalates with the generations to come.

The Social Network
For better or for worse Facebook has expanded to become a global media, connecting 800 million users world wide and spreading to every corner of of the world. Starting off as an idea about connecting kids to one another at Harvard, it has led to something that has changed our modern world.
Many things have led up to where Facebook is today. Mark Zuckerberg is a socially awkward, smart computer programmer who was studying computer science at Harvard back in 2003. In order for him to get where he is today with his invention of Facebook, many things had to fall into place leading up to his once in a lifetime idea. At the time, Zuckerberg had no idea that being excluded from some of the top clubs at Harvard and having very little friends would lead to something so great. All he wanted was to be part of something, to have friends and be part of something exclusive, where only certain could get in. This is shown in one of the original Facebook betas in which only people with a Harvard email could join. Harvard is one of the top, most elite school in the country, so with only kids that are from Harvard could join, it creates an exclusiveness that entices others to join and be part of. Another thing that had to fall in place in order for the Facebook to come about, is that Zuckerberg needed to realize what people wanted, and what would get people to come back time and time again. In the movie this idea hits him after the jewish fraternity party when he realizes that college students want to be able to know what their friends are doing and can connect with friends. The idea of being able to ‘friend’ someone and looking through their pictures and read their statuses to see what happened at some party last night would relate to college students. Along with being able to connect with someone they had just met at a party the night before and getting information to what this person is like just by viewing their Facebook page. Zuckerberg realizes that how this would keep college students coming back to the site and is an important step to making Facebook where it is today. Zuckerberg also needed the coolness factor to appeal to the mass audience. This was really expressed by Sean Parker in the movie who agreed with Zuckerberg during the beginning of the project, that adding adds to the site would kill the coolness. This could have potentially ended Facebook because thats all Facebook had going for them at the time, that is was cool.
Zuckerberg had a few things that seemed to hold him back one of which being his social skills. He seemed to be self centered and would say things that others took offense too, and example of this in the movie is when his girlfriend breaks up to him because he downgrades her intelligence. Another social issue that held him back is he is not a good speaker and does not do well under pressure. He talks fast and rarely blinks, which can be seen in interviews that he has done. One of his most famous interviews is back in 2007 when he comes under fire about the privacy issue. It is almost painful to watch because he does not know how to answer the questions and is drenched in sweat. Although these might have been small set backs, he has still continued to succeed in what he has done.
Facebook has had more impacts then people will ever know on society. It has intruded into our lives basically making nothing a secret anymore. Anyone on Facebook can know basic information about anyone in the world with a few clicks of the mouse. It has changed how people receive information and how events and ideas are presented to the general public. For example movements this past year in the middle east were made possible by social media and Facebook. It has also connected the cyber world more then ever before, with millions of websites being linked to Facebook, creating the ability to ‘like’ almost anything on the web which then lets advertisers advertise products that appeal to that user. I think 25 years from now, Facebook will be more then just a social networking site. I think it will essentially take over the internet making everything that goes on, on the internet, be run through Facebook. This could be better or for worse, but at the rate that Facebook is going this will happen.
This movie is all about the story of how Facebook came to be. How it started from a college dorm, and ended up expanding to every corner of the earth. Although this movie is based around Facebook, Facebook itself is not the most important thing talked about in the movie. One of the most things in the movie is how being an uncool, unpopular, yet very smart person can create something so cool and popular. Zuckerberg is able to understand what people want and like which lets him create something special. Another topic important in the movie is greed and selfishness. This is shown when the
Winkleboss twins sue Zuckerberg for a large amount of money over a marginally good idea that would have probably made it no where. The next two important topics in the movie is betrayal and creativeness. Zuckerberg turns on his only friend once Sean comes into the picture and Facebook really takes off. Zuckerberg needed to be creative and smart to come up with this. Throughout his time at Harvard, certain instances made him realize what would draw people to come to this website. He incorporated this into the website creating a formula of appeal to get people to return time and time again.
The Social Network has taught audiences many things about how Facebook came about. It has shown us how Facebook has become a global icon that has changed society forever. No one knows what the future holds for Facebook, but the way we communicate, receive information, and go about our daily lives will never be the same.

Social Network Analysis
Communication is everywhere in our society. From gestures to conversations, people communicate in different ways every day. As time has gone on, many new forms of communication have been added, including e-mail, cell phones, and social network sites such as Twitter and MySpace. One of the biggest most recent revolutions in communication is Facebook. Since it was launched five years ago, Facebook has evolved into a $500 billion company, with millions of members worldwide. The recent movie, “The Social Network” tells the story of Facebook’s founder, Mark Zuckerburg and the challenges he faced in creating the site.
Facebook has without a doubt changed the way people communicate. Teens and adults alike have used it to connect with old friends and loved ones. They can search for people using Facebook, and when they find them they can do everything from write on their wall to chatting with them. Furthermore, many people express themselves through Facebook. They can “like” virtually anything on Facebook, and connect with people thorough their mutual interests. Anyone can find out what they have in common with another person by simply looking at their friends interests.
Many people also hear about the news through social networking sites. Facebook has news pages, such as CNN or ABC that people can “like”. In liking that particular page, the recent news event will show up in their news feed and they will have access to it. Furthermore, many people post things to Facebook involving the news. For many people, that big event that gets posted is the first they’ll ever hear of it.
Facebook is very popular right now, and it could either grow within the next twenty five years or diminish. Today’s society is always looking for the next big thing, whether it’s a phone, car, or style of clothing. Facebook is currently the most popular social networking sites, probably because it stands out so well from other sites. Like the newest phone that everyone has to have, there could be a better site than Facebook that takes over the social networking world. In contrast, Facebook could become one of or the only ways people communicate. E-mail, texting, and phone calls would be a thing of the past. It is very difficult to tell what path Facebook will take within the next twenty five years.
The recent movie “The Social Network” tells the story of Mark Zuckerburg and the challenges he faced in creating Facebook. Mark Zuckerburg isn’t the only thing the movie focuses on, however. It has many themes, including revenge and reality. Without proper analysis, the movie just seems to show Mark and his friend Eduardo’s risk taking in creating the site, but it subtly adds several things in. First of all, there were many things that Zuckerburg needed in order to create Facebook including money, creativity, and support. He had thousands of dollars to start which greatly helping in the production of the site. Furthermore, Zuckerburg had to be careful in how he laid out the site and what he added to it to differentiate it from existing social network sites such as MySpace and Twitter. The last thing he needed was to be shut down because of a copyright issue.
Reality is a huge motif throughout the movie. Mark and Eduardo didn’t necessarily understand what they were getting themselves into when creating Facebook. In the beginning, there wasn’t a clear goal as to what the site would ultimately become. They wanted a way to communicate and get information at Harvard University. The site spread from Harvard to colleges across the country to all over the world. Mark and Eduardo weren’t prepared for that and fell behind because of it. Also, Mark made some foolish decisions that ultimately ended in lawsuits and loss of friends. After Facebook became successful, Mark became arrogant and cared more about himself than everyone else. Because of his bad attitude, people didn’t like him as much and left him.
“The Social Network” tells the story of Zuckerburg, but it’s much more than just that. Viewers can learn a lot about reality, support, and creativity through the movie. Without support and creativity, Facebook wouldn’t be nearly as successful as it is today. Zuckerburg also faltered a bit because of a lack of understanding of reality. Furthermore, depending on how society changes, Facebook could grow or diminish within the next decade or so. Hopefully people can learn something from “The Social Network”.
percent to .003 percent. Due to that, Eduardo confronts Mark and announces to him that he better get ready to get his lawyers, cause he is gonna sue him. After that argument, Facebook reaches a million users, and that night they have a party, in which Sean and some Facebook interns are arrested for possession of cocaine. In the end, the lawyer for defense, informs Mark they will be settling with Eduardo, and after everyone leaves, Mark sends a request to Erica Albright (Lawyer) and refreshes the page every seconds. Overall, that’s just a glimpse on why Facebook needs to come to an end, because it wasn’t started in a good way, and most likely won’t go down in a good way, or have a good affect on our society down the road.

The Social Network
In the world today we are ruled by technology. Everywhere you look you see a piece of technology which most likely can access the internet. The internet is one of the most powerful things in the world and what makes it so powerful is the ease of accessibility. This is where Mark Zuckerberg comes in to play. The Social Network is a movie produced by David Fincher which told the story of Zuckerberg’s creation of Facebook. With the creation of Facebook our whole world has changed. It has changed the world so much but yet has reached its total potential. Overall Facebook has a great and lasting impact on our society, Facebook has hidden costs on our society, and with the movie The Social Network there are many hidden, important topics of the movie.
Today Facebook has a lasting impact on our society. It is one of many social networking sights, but is much different than every single one of them. Facebook can be used for business, advertising, reconnecting with old friends, posting photos and videos of your recent trip, and many more. When this amazing social network site was first created, it was mainly for colleges and for college students to use. From that basic idea thousands more have been created making Facebook one of the most visited website on the web.
All of this has been created in about seven years. What will happen in ten years? Twenty five years? Facebook is uncontrollable and has no definite end. In years to come Facebook could take over the whole internet. Google may not be in existence and Facebook might become a great search engine. Many people wonder if Facebook will be used for education purposes. Facebook could also take a great downturn. As Zuckerberg says in the movie, “everyone is waiting for the next big thing,” Facebook might just be another big thing and another great idea will appear soon. The uses of this website are unimaginable and unpredictable.
Although Facebook is such a great tool and a way to find your friends, there are also many hidden costs of the site. Facebook is great allowing users to post where they are, what they are doing, and also allowing bullying to happen. When someone posts on their wall “going to Florida!” they let every single one of their friends know that there house will be open. This is not Facebook’s fault, it is just one problem that is not thought about. Also another negative fact about Facebook is cyber bullying. There are many ways for this to happen through embarrassing wall posts, harassing, black mailing and many more. Other negatives include subjecting yourself to threat, false reality, false personalities and many more. Although Facebook is great, many things are not thought about and this is a serious topic that needs to be brought up in the mind of Zuckerberg.
In the movie The Social Network, the main theme of the movie seems to be the basic story of Mark Zuckerberg. It seems to be explaining how Mark “stole” the idea from the Winklevos twins, created the Facebook and screwed over his best friend Eduardo. The main theme in this story that I noticed during the movie was friendship. When Mark was first creating the website he went to Eduardo for everything. Ideas were taken, money was borrowed, and trust was shared. This went on for a decent amount of time until they both met Sean Parker. Sean was the creator of Napster, a free music downloading site, which was shut down. Mark turned to him and looked toward success leaving Eduardo in the past. He forgot about everything that Eduardo contributed, all the hard work he did to get sponsors, all the ideas he had that made the sigh poplar, and most of all Mark forgot the friendship that they had.
Another theme that I saw in the movie was the reality of the real world. In the movie Mark is in two court cases. During the movie it portrays mark as someone who does not care about what he did. He sits in court not giving two cents about what anyone is saying. All he wants to do is work on The Facebook. He does not realize that what he is doing with the Facebook is putting him in court and in real world situations.
There are also positive outcomes within the reality of the real world. In the world today if you work hard at what you love you will be successful. In this case it was true. Mark puts in thousands of hours of work into this site and wants to make it better in every way he can. It is a debate if Mark worked hard for money or not but either way, if you work that hard and are dedicated to one thing, you will be successful.
Facebook has about 800 million users. That is 800 million people around the world connected to one site that was not even to be what it is now. It is a wonderful thing and is expanding and improving every single day. Although it is so great there are many negatives to the sight like cyber bullying. Also the movie The Social Network portrays th
e story of Mark Zuckerburg and many other themes hidden inside of the movie. Determination is what everyone needs and Mark proves this true with the social networking site Facebook.

One Website Changing the World
Living in a constantly changing society entails technological advances and social adjustments. Today people are stimulated with technology without end between computers and internet, television, cell phones, and iPods which have evolved into essentially portable computers. However, much of society's obsession with technology seems to stem from social media. Social media has changed the way we live and interact, and the main reason for this is Facebook. The huge popularity and almost addictive nature of Facebook has had people glued to the computer screen, and now their cell phones, since it was first created. The Social Network depicts how Mark Zuckerberg came up with the concept of Facebook and how it grew as a company and as a network. The origin of Facebook changed Zuckerberg's life along with millions of people as Zuckerberg had to test his loyalty to friends and his entitlement to the whole website. Facebook has changed the basic communication of our society, both now and in the future, it makes society more social yet more isolated, and its creation stems from primarily entitlement and revenge.
Facebook has changed the way friends, co-workers, and companies communicate. Because so many people are regularly online on Facebook, it has become a convenient and fairly quick way to socialize or plan with friends. Many students take breaks or avoid homework with the ease of just signing onto Facebook and starting a conversation with friends. Facebook has also become an easy way to help students with school. If a student misses a class they can ask a friend to simply "inbox" the assignment. Friends also easily plan parties or events using Facebook by inviting people to an "Event." Hosts can quickly look at the list of RSVP's to know who is coming to the event. This has changed drastically from about 50 years ago when a host would have to hand write invitations and wait to receive responses in the mail. Businesses coordinate events through Facebook and many co-workers become "friends" as a device for simple communication. Specific classes in high school and college can also make groups on Facebook to "post" questions that are commonly confusing a majority of the students. Charities, singers, and businesses can make a "Page" on Facebook that people will become "Fans" of. The business can then post information, pictures, and advertisements on the "Wall" and fans can follow the wall and get information about the business. Facebook has changed the way charities and singers advertise themselves because they no longer have to hope someone will notice their adds in a newspaper or in a commercial. Facebook has changed society in many ways already, and it will continue to change society as it grows and advances. Email may become obsolete as companies move towards the use of Facebook for faster and more wide-spread communication. Facebook will continue to evolve and grow, as well its uses and number of members.
Facebook is growing at a rapid rate and it is making people more connected and social, but also more isolated. Adding people as friends, having conversations online, and posting "statuses" is making people believe they are interacting with the outside world, when in reality they are staying at a computer desk in their home. The amount of time people spend on Facebook is starting to change social behavior and skills. Teachers complain increasingly about how they receive what is supposed to be a formal writing piece with "lol" or "u" typed into it. People are also becoming more accustomed to, and more comfortable with typing out a conversation rather then actually having one on the phone or in person. As Facebook makes advancements in its design, people are finding more reasons to stay online for longer periods of time, believing it is socializing when in reality they are losing social skills. The positive aspects of Facebook helps people enjoy fast communication and convenient ways to plan events, but people are spending so much time on Facebook that they are starting to lack the sociability to have a conversation with a friend, co-worker or boss in person.
The rapid evolution of Facebook started at Harvard University with Mark Zuckerberg programming Facebook and his friend, Eduardo Saverin, the business and financial end of Facebook. The Social Network shows the two boys growing apart as Zuckerberg takes Facebook in the direction he wants it to go in, and puts his loyalty in Shawn Fanning to make Facebook a huge success. The entire movie stems off of the two law suits that Zuckerberg finds himself under, one because of his disloyalty to a friend to get ahead. The other is because the Winklevoss twins felt entitled to the idea of Facebook. In reality the movie portrayed the origin of Facebook as inspired by the Winklecoss's idea, but it evolved into something completely different. The theme of en
entitlement in this movie carries over to the theme of revenge with the law suits from Saverin and the Winklevosses feeling entitled to compensation for their input into Facebook.
The start of Facebook was based off of revenge and entitlement, and it evolved into a world changing social network that has changed the communication of our society and has its advantages and disadvantages. The creation of Facebook was attempted to be claimed by the Winklvosses, and taken from Saverin. However, it has connected people by speedy communication and convenient planning methods. Facebook has moved most of the socializing people have to do to the computer screen and cell phone screens. Facebook holds many advantages and advancements for the world, but it has also created technology that hinders people that are becoming isolated. From humble beginnings in a dorm room, Facebook has changed the world and the way people view it.

In Your Face
Morality and responsibility are two attributes that are intrinsically related and integral to humanity. By interconnecting individuals in social networking sites, such as Facebook, moral responsibility becomes less individualistic. Thus, the people heading social networks have inadvertently placed the burden of social responsibility upon themselves. For individuals like Mark Zuckerberg, creator of Facebook, the online moral responsibility of millions is carried on his shoulders. From an ethical standpoint, one would hope that Zuckerberg would hold a great personal sense of morality which would transfer to his company and influence the masses. However, Zuckerberg has displayed a poor moral code, which has translated into lacking and retroactive moral standards on Facebook.
In the box-office hit The Social Network, which details the creation of Facebook, manipulation and alleged intellectual property theft are central to the plot. Zuckerberg was sued not only by the business associates he sabotaged, Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, but also his former best friend and partner Eduardo Saverin. Zuckerberg settled with the Winklevoss twins outside of court, but they are appealing the original settlement. According to the Daily Telegraph, the brothers are continuing to pursue justice and are not suing for the money. This can be evidenced by the original settlement in which the twins were awarded sixty five million in cash and shares, as well as the privileged background that they come from. The Winklevoss twins feel that they were a large part of Zuckerberg’s success, but due to the events that ensued, they are unsure if “he’s capable of understanding the concept of morality.”
It wasn’t until months after teenager Ashleigh Hall was murdered by thirty five year old Peter Chapman whom she met through the site, that Facebook finally implemented an application that would provide teenagers of England a system to access the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP). CEOP had initially pushed for Facebook to place a logo linked to CEOP to report pedophiles on every page of Facebook, essentially a panic button. Facebook rejected this solution on the grounds that this panic button would create an excess of work for both companies, according to information gained through a study done by CEOP. However, Facebook did not seem to grasp the gravity of the problem of child exploitation on their own site. The detailed research completed by CEOP found that seventy five percent of complaints submitted to CEOP involved Facebook.
Although Facebook has since heightened site security and implemented extra measures to attempt to prevent child exploitation, measures were not put into place until after the public pressured the company. Before Facebook took such measures, other social networking sites, such as Bebo, have incorporated CEOP’s resources into the site in a proactive manner to prevent abuse. In usage base, Bebo is one eighth the size of Facebook, and yet the executives of the company made user safety on the site a priority. Once Bebo had launched the CEOP button, President Stephane Panier, said that they are ensuring that Bebo is “the safest possible environment; one that is based on respect, tolerance and inclusion.”
The mission of CEOP also encompasses the issue of cyber bulling. Cyber bullying occurs most often in chat rooms, but this unwanted number one spot will soon be taken over by social networking sites because of the growth of social networks, the ease of use, and the relative anonymity. On Facebook alone, over one million children were victims of cyber bullying in the past year, according to a Consumer Reports survey. People hide behind their computer screens and pseudonyms and use the large and nearly unmonitored internet as a pathway to bully others. Most incidents go unreported, and thus far prevention efforts have largely focused upon the efforts of parents.
Not only does the lack of moral responsibility of executives put the public at risk for physical harm and emotional abuse, the structure of such networking sites could lead to a deficiency in moral values. As the Daily Telegraph reported, research conducted by scientists has shown that the faced-paced format of social networking sites like Facebook does not permit users enough time to respond to information tied to emotions such as admiration and empathy, which are connected to one’s sense of morality. The implications for children growing up in this technological age could be even more alarming because they have yet to clearly define their moral code. With their brains continuing to develop, children could possibly become desensitized to social emotions.
For most people, the character we display in a personal situation also carries over to the workplace. If Zuckerberg’s character was accura
accurately portrayed in the film, than his personality traits are reflected in his harsh treatment of others in his business. Zuckerberg even sacrificed his relationship with his best friend for the success of Facebook. His personality traits are more subtly displayed in his business by the deficient and retroactive safety features and the general lack of moral responsibility and accountability to his product and the public. Although he is hugely successful today, it will be interesting to follow the company to see if his personal character eventually leads to the company’s demise.

The Social Network Reflection
Facebook was created in 2006 by a man named Mark Zuckerberg along with others created a website that was called “The Facebook.” Known today as “Facebook” this website has sky rocketed to the top of the social networks. Today, Facebook has over 800 million users and more then 70 languages are available on the site. Getting pictures the most up to date picture is simple when using Facebook because on average, more than 250 million photos are uploaded per day. If you thought the millions were a lot, Mark Zuckerburg who had 24% equity in Facebook has a net worth of $17.5 billion. Even the spell check on Microsoft word recognizes Facebook as a word. These facts just show how enormous this website has become. When the founders created the site they never knew how much it would influence our society, Mark Zuckerburg ran into many successes and downfalls and while creating the website there were more important things going on as the movie Social Network depicted.
Facebook, the largest social network in the world may be doing more than just connecting friends and listing local concerts. In fact, facebooks impact on society goes far beyond meeting new friends and sharing music videos. It has entered our everyday social life. Anyone can go on facebook and see what their friends are doing and where they are doing it. People can now use it as a source for news. So now instead of reading articles or watching the news you can go onto facebook and find someone talking about it and their opinion on it. Now it is questioned if it’s a reliable source for news but people find out new things going on in the world through facebook and not the newspapers. Facebook has also become a tool for law enforcement. Since all images, conversations, status updates and posts are cataloged, facebook acts as a virtual crime scene for police and FBI officials. Police agencies claim that so many people use facebook, law enforcement agencies across the country are tracking audacious criminals who are arrogant enough to boast about their crimes to anyone who surfs the internet on Facebook. As time goes on I believe that more things like these will form from the always growing facebook. There is really no way to guess what will come in the future because Facebook has already shown that anything is possible on the internet.
As facebook was being created and expanded, Mark Zuckerburg seemed to have his fortes and his downfalls that both helped and hurt him. Mark overall was lagging in the social life but he made up for it with his knowledge. Some things that helped Mark become successful were that he was a jerk to people. Most people would think that being rude would hurt someone but it didn’t hurt Mark. His jerk nature towards people made him a very demanding person. The best example of him being successful because of this characteristic was when he took the idea of Facebook from the Winklevoss twins. If Mark was nice he would have created the website for the twins and received nothing from it. One of his flaws that held him back in the early stages of creating Facebook was his lack of social skills. Talking to Mark was very difficult for most people. Reasoning with him was difficult because he always went off on his own little tangent. He was also very awkward at times. A recent example of his awkwardness was during an interview in 2010. During the interview Mark was profusely sweating and struggled to create a strong statement for the questions. However he has gotten better, later in that year he had an interview for 60 minutes and it seemed that he had a lot more confidence then before.
The movie Social Network is about Mark Zuckerburg growing the company Facebook and also the lawsuits that were created against him. But there were more important things then just the creation of Facebook. One of the things that movie puts first in importance is the reality of the real world and how it hurts. Zuckerburg himself never really experienced reality because he flew right to the top and has not stopped ever since. It was his colleagues and friends that experienced the reality. One of them was the Winklevoss twins. The twins went to mark and gave him an idea of a website that would change social networks. Little did they know was that Zuckerburg was just going to take there idea and use it for himself. The reality the Winklevoss twins had experienced was that no one can be trusted when it comes to a creation of a ground breaking idea.
None of the creators of Facebook ever believed that it would become such a huge enterprise. It seems that Mark Zuckerburg just happened to be in the right place at the right time. Now he heads a company that grosses billions and billions of dollars from an internet website. Facebook has taken over society and will continue to influence our everyday lives. Also as Mark learns more about being a CEO of a
company the rate of influence of the site will increase. But as the movie showed, there were bigger things then just the website.

The Social Network
Facebook, the largest social network in the world has made one of the biggest impacts on society today. Although not at people may notice, Facebook does more than just connect friends. It has been involved in things like crimes further becoming a tool for law enforcement. Nobody really sees the hidden costs or benefits of such a network. People may think Facebook has already made its impact but it is continuing to make an impact day and night. Every day that the site remains up, the more society is changed. Facebook is currently making some positive changes which are reasons to keep the site up and running for its 800 million members.
The society of today exists in a digital age, where the new media spreads news that is shaped by everyone. The online world is a giant part of today. The growth in usage of the internet is so unbelievable that about forty percent of people in America have an account to this website. People need to actually step back for a moment to see the shocking list of things that Facebook has done to change society whether it was accomplished by accident or not. Facebook is following the role of technology today, they are both set in a path to make things easier for people. This type of technology links together social networking and applications that can enhance freedom and mobility. Users have the ability to access information and communicate with others at any time. Facebook started off as a website that was cool because it allowed friends to show interests, relationships, and private information. The thing that most people aren’t aware of is that the site is a news source. Events are made aware of and people live almost effortless lives when it comes to being updated.
Now as much as Facebook helps, it can become addicting and harmful to use. Usually teens and adults post more things than they should and because of that, they can lose their job or educational opportunities. Also, as odd as it sounds, people have been killed over posts and pictures on their account. Usually when new things are created they can be perceived in a positive or negative view. Cons are that all of this sharing can be dangerous, through gossip and potential abuse of the services. Some people become addicted to life on the computer screen, and withdraw from personal contact. With technology coming out this rapidly and advanced it’s a little unpredictable how society will work in twenty-five years. Most people would guess that the internet will control everything and technology will obtain a great amount of power.
The film, “The Social Network” is about a website that was created in a Harvard dorm room in 2004 that has altered the way people connect and communicate in this century. The film is both a micro and macro view of achievement, downfall and the results of Mark Zuckerberg’s personality and greed. Mr. Zuckerberg and Eduardo Saverin combine their computer knowledge and wealth to create an opportunity of a lifetime. The movie seems to focus on friendship and trust that faded away in the complicated process of building a potential billion dollar company. Both characters watch each other changed dramatically when recognition becomes too important. As the movie plays it’s easy to see how Mark draws all the attention on him while Eduardo becomes less and less of the company. When Eduardo, the co-founder of the company which ends up being worth 25 billion finds out that his shares were diluted to 0.03% by Mark, he sues Mark for everything Facebook was worth. At the same time, Mark was being sued by two Harvard students, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss. They set out to have Mark pay them for the idea of Facebook after they had said he stole it. They said that Mark stole an idea with a lot of potential after Mark stopped working with them it wasn’t going anywhere. The Winklevoss twins were only paid sixty-five million because none of their code was used to create the site. Throughout the second half of the film, a guy named Sean walked into the picture and made his contribution that made Facebook bigger than ever. Unfortunately, he had also influenced the betrayal of Mark and Eduardo. After all the chaos, Mark friend requests a girl from Harvard that he went out with. He had regrets about his blogging while he was drunk because he revealed information that she didn’t want to be shared. Later on, Eduardo receives an unknown settlement and his name was restored to the Facebook masthead as a Co-Founder. The company continues to change the world, one update at a time.
“The Social Network” tells the story of Mark Zuckerberg, the story to his success. By watching this, viewers can see how he got to where he is now. Most would say that he was influenced by other social networks and that he made it his goal to combine all the positive aspects of them, creating one very successful webs
ite. As the movie showed, Facebook would have been no more than an idea without money, computer experience, and friends. If the idea was broken down into parts, it took time and effort to type code, money in order for the site to run, and young adults with friends. The site was meant to save college experience digitally and after graduation, keep the friends connected. Facebook did exactly what it was supposed to there is no secret to its success after watching “The Social Network”.

The Social Network
Facebook in our society today plays a major role in how we act and see things now days. Many millions of people use face book each day for recreational use and business. It has drastically changed many of us personally and it has also changed us as a society overall. has changed our society in many ways the first of which is that it has made it much easier for people in different countries and other states to stay in contact with each other. Secondly Facebook has changed the way people see how the world works and it has made it far easier for people to start new programs and get ideas out and get feedback on them. Facebook has also changed the way businesses work and stay in contact. Many companies are now using Facebook for business purposes, they have realized that Facebook is a great way to find out what kinds of things people are really interested in and are using it for ads and also personally they are using it for people within companies to stay in contact with each other.Even the C.I.A has used Facebook to find terrorists and convicts. Many terrorist organizations stay in contact using Facebook so it makes the job of our homeland defense force much easier that they can read all of the messages from those organizations directly. I personally think that Facebook has changed people on a more person level because to some people Facebook has become a major part of their life and they use it for almost everything. They use it to stay in touch with friend they use it for emailing and other important thing like the news. If they want to find something out without the bias of the media they can ask the community of Facebook and see what people think about it. In the future I think that Facebook will become more than just a website/blog and become a real search engine. As of right now Facebook and Google are competing and I think that in the near future Facebook will take over Google and Facebook will become the main search engine that people will use. Also I think that people will start to use Facebook instead of email at this point Facebook already has the capability so I think that they will expound ion that in the upcoming years. Although Facebook’s has many great things it also has its downsides and hidden costs. Some of the things that are in away taken away from people that use Facebook are basically their online freedom and personal security. People who use Facebook are basically giving away information on them and the thongs that they do, everything that is posted up on Facebook is public information and can be used anyway they want. This means that the businesses that post ads up on Facebook have access to all of your personal information that you put up so that they can find the best ads for you. Even though there are some downsides to Facebook it still has many positive aspects to it. Some of which are that they help fight the war on crime and terrorism in our country and in other countries of the world. Also it allows people to stay in contact with each other and share how people feel about subjects and matters in the world. It also brings people together and gives them a sense of feeling in a community. The social network was a movie on the creator or Facebook Mark Zuckerburg and his story of how Facebook came to be. It also showed how people truly are when they put their minds to it and what they can accomplish out of sheer will power and determination.

Facebook the “Cool” New Sensation
Bringing people together one friend request at a time, this site takes social life to a new extreme. Through it we can open doors to a more open society as millions of people are connected through the web. With access to pictures, statuses, and other information by just looking on someone’s “wall” you can get to know them without having ever needed to interact with this person. So with all the good that facebook.com could bring, there are negative effects it could have on society.
In our society just about everyone has a facebook, whether it’s for communicating about a project or planning a social get together the facebook is the largest “party” to hit the internet. “You can relive the party” says Sean Parker’s actor in the Social Network. By this he meant that any photo taken at a party could be seen on your wall even if the photo was of something that you preferred not being seen. So if an underage drinker was a party and was seen with alcohol it would screw most chances at obtaining a job. “You wrote it in ink, on the internet that is there forever.” This quote comes from when Mark Zuckerberg compared his ex to a farm animal proving the point of how dangerous the internet is.
Becoming a threat to even Google, the booming powerhouse of facebook has become a force to be reckoned with, as it has obtained a billion dollar market value, as Sean Parker had suggested it may become. How did they obtain this success? By keeping the site cool, but cool and safe are two different things. Having the ability to pull up anybodies profile and find information such as name, address, age, etc. how can anybody be safe? Well facebook has added security features, so that only friends can receive such information. But even with these “privacy settings”, many still have issues where people can access information without their permission. In an interview with Mark Zuckerberg, although more poise then in older interviews, was unable to truly defend himself when asked how to better security. Instead gave an answer about how the facebook is cool and how security is top priority, although was unable to give an answer to as he was going to fix the problem.
In terms of the movie, from what can be assumed although Mark had made many enemies throughout the beginning of facebook, majority of what he did was fueled by anger. This feeling created in the scene where his girlfriend broke up with him, which in a later interview he reports that he had continued to date her through college. So then why go and make the enemies he made, including his best friend, and CFO. In his great conquest for facebook, he wanted to adapt so although the twin’s idea may have been the original springboard, facebook grew to be much larger than that. In which the twins became obsolete as they had only truly been beneficial for the idea, in which in a later interview are still rather upset about. For all the wrongs Zuckerberg had done to those aiding him on facebook, he was in the end trying to provide a place for people to mingle and brought the internet even closer together.
The effects on society are slow coming as the internet is unmarked territory and harder to regulate. But only a few years after its creation facebook has become a leading source of information about anything “cool” whether a relationship status or keeping up to date on a band you “liked”. In our society it is acceptable to spend long hours on it, just to procrastinate from work. Facebook has a negative effect on our society as everyone has become a part of Zuckerberg’s “coolness” factor. In which anyone not a part of it will be left behind, as it is a sophisticated, multitasking social device.
Although giving the capability to communicate with friends, and be part of the “cool” crowd, facebook has brought about a negative impact on society. Where, safety is still an issue but comes second to if the facebook is still “cool” or not. Also with its creation people are spending more time socializing than actually doing important work that will impact their lives, whether for a job opportunity, or getting accepted to college. The facebook is a great, tool but the world is not capable of functioning with it, until we have a better understanding of it, rather than, it’s “cool”

The Social Network
“We lived on farms, then we lived in cities, and now we're going to live on the internet!” are the words spoken by Sean Parker in David Fincher’s The Social Network. This movie focuses on the revolutionary social networking site Facebook.com. It portrays the story of a Harvard undergraduate, Mark Zuckerberg, who founded Facebook in his dorm room. The Social Network shows the true struggle for power in creating an exclusive social networking site, determination by means of resentment, and how friendship is traded for success.
A struggle for power is shown throughout The Social Network. Three Harvard seniors, Tyler Winklevoss, Cameron Winklevoss, and Divya Narenda, approached Zuckerberg after the immediate popularity of his website, Facemash, which allowed users to rate female students at Harvard. Zuckerberg created the site whilst drunk, writing code and using algorithms. His advanced talent was obvious, and so the Winklevoss’s and Narenda asked Zuckerberg to help them create a social networking site called HarvardConnection.com. Zuckerberg realized the potential in an exclusive social network, and set on making his own site, which would initially be called Thefacebook. He ignored the twins’ requests for status updates and did not inform them of his own creation. In February of 2004, Zuckerberg launched Thefacebook.com. This was the first time the HarvardConnection team became aware of Zuckerberg’s website, and they were thoroughly enraged that their ideas were used to create a competing website. They filed a lawsuit against Zuckerberg, which was settled later. The Winklevoss twins and Narenda had the preliminary idea for a social networking site at Harvard, but this was not the first site out there. Myspace was a popular website at the time, and the only difference between Myspace and HarvardConnection was the campus exclusivity. Zuckerberg may have created what the Winklevoss’s and Narenda had in mind, but he took care of the programming and designing of the website. Although Zuckerberg had all the power in this situation, the other students retaliated by suing him.
Another revelation to the struggle for power is also shown when the Winklevoss twins row at the Henley Royal Regatta. In the Grand Challenge Cup, the Harvard eight boat team loses to the Dutch Olympic eight boat team by two thirds of a boat length. A race this close is extremely rare, as races are usually won by at least several boat lengths. This close race is an indirect correlation to the race to create an exclusive social networking site. In both situations, the Winklevoss’s are so close to “victory.” Unfortunately for them, they are beat out by someone else just a step ahead of them.
Facebook is fueled by resentment. The Social Network opening scene takes place in a pub, where Mark Zuckerberg and his girlfriend at the time, Erica Albright, are fighting about their relationship. Albright breaks up with Zuckerberg, not because he is a nerd, but due to his intricate personality. An upset Zuckerberg heads back to his dorm and blogs his feelings away while creating the aforementioned Facemash website. His drunken yet subdued rage causes him to blog nasty things about his exgirlfriend, and he hacks into several databases to obtain pictures of female Harvard students. Comparing two girls at a time to choose the “hotter” one was not Zuckerberg’s goal. According to an article in the Harvard Crimson newspaper, “The programming and algorithms that made the site function were Zuckerberg’s primary interest in creating it, he said.” This was an outright action of resentment towards Albright, and Zuckerberg succeeded in proving that he could gain popularity.
Zuckerberg needed money and connections to create his social networking empire, neither of which he had access to. He enlisted the help of his best friend, Eduardo Saverin, to back the venture financially. As shown in The Social Network, once Thefacebook is up and running, Zuckerberg realizes he needs to expand. To do so will take not only money, but connections. A social network is based on connections, whether they are friendships, acquaintances, or strangers. A Mr. Sean Parker, founder of Napster, comes into the picture, and lays out a plan for Thefacebook that Zuckerberg falls in love with. He immediately falls for Parker’s business strategy, and while doing so, loses his personal connection with Saverin. “I’m the business end of this company, and he’s just a house guest,” is how Saverin feels about Parker. Regardless, Zuckerberg becomes too wrapped up in his growing success, and pushes Saverin away from the company. Parker suggests dropping the “the” from Thefacebook and secures funding from investors. He is hyper focused on Faceb
Facebook, and with money and connections, has nothing holding him back.
Zuckerberg’s riveting success is revealed in the movie The Social Network. It illustrates the struggle for power in creating an exclusive social networking site, determination by means of resentment, and how friendship is traded for success. With 800 million users, Facebook is a revolutionary social networking site that will forevermore shape society. Despite the negative wrap the movie gave Facebook, people have not stopped using the site. Society may use Facebook solely as a source of news in the future. With the vast connection opportunities, anything is possible. Facebook has proved to be an effortless way to communicate with friends and family and even strangers, near and far. From finding a lost adopted sibling to chatting up a romantic interest, there are virtually no limitations. Facebook is clearly the way of the present and of the future.

Our World with Facebook
One major influence on the media was the invention of Facebook. This website has changed many lives of people today in good and also bad ways. The mastermind that made this website was Mark Zuckerberg. Mark Zuckerberg had been working with computers almost all of his life and has found a hobby that has made him famous and rich. The website he created, Facebook, has millions of users from all around the world and the amount of people that have a Facebook account are still rising very quickly. This genius that created the website has had many positives but it also has its negatives, which involve people suing him. The Social Network is a movie that tries to give a good idea of what really happened during the creation of Facebook, which is worth billions of dollars. Facebook has changed our society in many different ways, there are hidden costs and benefits for the website, and the movie displays many major facts about the creation of Facebook.
The website has become very popular in a short time and many more people are creating accounts every day. In some ways Facebook has helped our society by giving people information about recent news. Facebook has also become available to people in all countries around the world and it has helped our society in many ways. The website can be used to keep people updated on all new events happening in the world and in your friends’ lives. People with an account can also make groups for business purposes and other purposes. Facebook users can also join a group to find out what is happening with bands, actresses, etc… Many people are addicted to this website and stay on it for long periods of time. The website also has some bad effects on our society because now people want to chat on Facebook instead of talking in person and also they are less likely to go outdoors if they are addicted to Facebook. In 25 years people will be surrounded by technology and that is making more ways for people to go on Facebook.
The hidden costs include many things that the company has to pay for in order to make and extend the website. Some hidden costs could be to pay for computer software so it can be easier to publicize the website. Other costs for this site include paying for subway rides to also help publicize the website and also loan some money. In the movie it shows that Zuckerberg and Saverin had to pay to rent a house in California. The benefits for this is to make more money than you spent and become famous. If everything goes right then you can live a happy life knowing that you build a website that millions of people use and that has changed the society in hopefully a good way.
The movie about the creation of Facebook is called The Social Network and it shows inside facts about what happened to Mark Zuckerberg. The movie shows how the company became such a big thing and how different people sued him. Mark Zuckerberg had to go through two lawsuits after he made the website. One lawsuit was against the Winklevoss twins and their friend and they were suing him for stealing their idea. Mark argued that there were many sites just like the Facebook and that they didn’t have the ability to make the website. The other lawsuit was against who used to be his best friend, Eduardo Saverin. Saverin was suing him for diluting his share down from 34 percent down to 0.03 percent. Zuckerberg ended up losing both of the lawsuits and he agreed to pay them millions of dollars each.
Even though Mark Zuckerberg was sued for millions of dollars he was still happy knowing that he was the one that created Facebook. He is surprised that this website was such a success and that it has had such a big impact on our society. Zuckerberg is still working on expanding his website and making it as great as it can possibly be. The website has attracted millions of people around the world and it will continue to for many years. People are still waiting to see if the genius has any other ideas that will become a huge success.

Facebook is one of the most popular social-networking sites in American has seen. It’s a great way connecting with friends, and finding new people but it also has effects on our society, while being a positive thing its also a negative thing. Facebook seems to be an astatic and fun social networking website, but some aspects of Facebook could cause a change to our society. Facebook is changing our society. If Facebook does not come to an end, its going to change the world over the years like nobody has ever seen it before. Facebook could generate violence, deaths, and real world drama. Facebook could become the new government. Facebook is changing our society as a whole. More and more people are joining Facebook daily, how many more people can join such a website? The more and more people who join Facebook each day are giving Facebook more and more power to dictate our society. Due to Facebook people are bullying which leads to suicide, it has also started world riots, with that more and more people are joining, which is feeding more and more problems. A conclusion to watching this website crash would be if less people started using Facebook, it would turn into like MySpace was. But if it continues to stay the same, Facebook will gain more and more power down the road and it will dictates our society. So when it comes down to it, my question remains, who is going to be that person to stop this site, that is becoming more and more controlling as years pass?
Another issue that I have noticed about Facebook is they don’t care about your privacy. In my eyes I don’t want random people to be able to see where I am. Facebook has this new locater where every time you post on your wall or someone else wall it says where you posted from. This is a terrible feature to have on a website, its gateway for rapist to come find where I am and kid nap me. That’s not something I want to have to worry about on a website I use just to connect with old friends. Privacy is a huge concern on many social networking sites like Facebook. Most people want to keep there information private. This privacy issues is huge, and someone has to step in and control this situation at hand. Privacy is a huge to a lot of people, people don’t like sharing their information with people that are not relevant to their life. This locater feature on Facebook is a prime reason to stop this site, because that’s information people don’t want leaked on the Internet.
Social Network really changes the perspective of how people think about Facebook.
The Social Network is suppose to be a positive aspect. Which it is positive but it also has a lot of negatives features to it. Its changed over the years and now I feel if Facebook is now competing with other social networking sites to see who has more power, its not about connecting with old friends and meeting new people. It’s interesting to see how Facebook this huge social networking site captures the minds of people all ages worldwide and corrupts their minds with this site. Millions of people use Facebook for hours playing games, finding people, and many other things, and that’s why somebody has to put a stop to it before it get’s to out of hand. Facebook is being used for more then its main focus its becoming more of a search engine then and social networking website its loosing its focus. Although, Facebook allows you to connect with your friends, and find out what people are doing, and also allows you to get the inside scoop. But I feel the site is making our world lazy instead of talking to someone and writing this on Facebook its better to Handel in person. I see it as People loosing there social skills outside of a computer screen. The Social Network movie though, really portrays how Facebook is, and how it started. The movie really captures how Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg is dumped by his girlfriend and due to that, goes straight top blogging bad things about her so other people can see. And then starts off to be the biggest social networking sites in history. First Zuckerberg start’s a website called Facemash which allows users to rate the attractiveness of female students on the campus. After Facemash, Mark approached his friend Eduardo Saverin and tells him of the great idea called thefacebook. Eduardo agrees to help and provides Mark with $1,000 to get the site up and going. Along the way Mark meets Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss and they invite Mark to their private club, where Mark agrees to due the job as a programmer for a proposed dating site called the Harvard Connection. Later on when the Winklevoss twins learn about the launch of TheFacebook, things become heated between them and Zuckerberg.then the twins try going to the dean of the college stating that Mark stole their idea, and the dean dosnt buy it. Eduardo and Mark later down the road
