The Social Network, directed by David Fincher (2010), is a film about the chaotic origin story of Facebook. From this version of events, Zuckerberg had skill when he persisted but otherwise arrived in front of him in a perfect storm and he rarely turned down an opportunity. He certainly had tech smarts but was socially dumb which is hilarious since he and his team set the standard for current social media. In the end, he’s just a guy that desperately wants to be liked by his peers and ends up pushing them away. The film is inspiring and eye opening. Zuckerberg’s myth is inspiring and sad. A well done film that’s worth watching at least once.
