at two more questions then we'll open it up to the audience so Ron also asked the audience how many of you have seen the social network and most people have so I haven't seen it but I wanted to ask you if if that's the picture that people have in their head about what happened at Facebook what's the real difference what what is the biggest difference about what actually happened what do you want to start one of the biggest ones I mean I don't know it's interesting what stuff they focused on getting right like every single shirt and fleece that I had in that movie is actually a shirt or fleece that I own but you know so there's all the stuff that they got wrong and a bunch of random details that they got right and the thing that I think is actually most thematically interesting that they got wrong is they the whole framing in the movie kind of the way that it starts is I'm with this girl who doesn't exist in real life who dumps me which has happened in real life a lot and and and basically the frame it is if the whole reason for making Facebook and building something was because I wanted to get girls or wanted to get into some kind of social institution and I mean the reality for people who know me is I've actually been dating the same girl since before I started at Facebook so obviously that that's not a part of it but I think it's just it's such a big disconnect from I think the way that people make movies think about what we do in Silicon Valley building stuff right like they just can't wrap their head around the idea that someone might build something because they like building things you

  1. The law suits do exist…. And anyone who's ever played poker can see how uncomfortable he is discussing it….hes got so many tells…. If he's so innocent as he claims then disclose the lawsuit amounts on what he paid out… I'm sure the movie was a lil hyped up but he got sued by a founding member…. Enough 😔

  2. Comment section full of people hating cause dude is filthy rich 😂😂😂 … guys, you can be broke and not hate … I should know.

    By the way, he is anxious cause he is shy in public. It's normal. You should know. You have a friend like that.

  3. Facebook is the largest personal data collector site.
    People are wasting their time, trading their privacy for what? Getting thumbs up approval on their pic which no ones really care about?

    Its better to quit these things and focus on your life, your goals, your family.

    Love someone not internet.

  4. ummm… someone who has not seen the movie should NEVER ask about the movie because she does not relate to the thing they are talking about. If I would have been Zuckerberg here I would tell her to ask the other question because she is an idiot for asking about something she has no idea.

  5. A movie about a guy who just likes to build things doesn’t really make for a compelling narrative.. of course they’d have to fabricate some of the details to make it more interesting and give his character motivation and if it works in the context of the story, so what if it’s not entirely accurate. It’s a film it’s supposed to be entertaining.

  6. I think it's important to realise as well, that The Social Network… is a FILM, it isn't an actual documentation of the events that took place, it's a work of cinema and therefore is a landscape for a writer, Aaron Sorkin, to write a provocative story that has many elements and themes which are important, also allowing a director to craft that script into a visual medium that tells a narrative relevant of which people can relate and enjoy. So it's kind of absurd to take the film literally, especially in Jesse's portrayal of Zuckerberg, because it's a fictional character, not the REAL person, so the motivations for the character are likely to change either way

  7. Does Mark Zuckerberg really think that David Fincher & Aaron Sorkin would tell a story without the real details?
    I mean, David Fincher is a perfectionist so I wouldn’t think this film wouldn’t be far from the real events.
