The Social Network

Anyone going to see the movie? Some of the early reviewers have been giving it a pretty good rating.

http://www.metacritic.com/movie/the-social-network
http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the-social-network/

I won't be seeing it week one but I'll eventually get around to it.

^ Usually that's the case with many movies that claim to be based on a true story,
or something like that.

Nobody's lives are really that interesting. Hollywood always steps in to spice it up.

Then again, the people in the story have been trying to discredit the book forever.. So who really knows

All I know is, David Fincher is one of my favourite directors, and of course one of my favourite musicians is doing the soundtrack, so I am really looking forward to it.

i heard that Zuckerberg? was like from a rich family and he just heard about the idea from a classmate and offered to be the financial backer with family members that could help with the technical side?


either way its not like it was revolutionary... people are acting like similar sites didn't exist

the public (spurred on by the media/govt) and media has just latched onto the site


I like Jesse Eisenberg though (wow so many jews :P ) so i'll probably download it

i think facebook is pretty unique..it's really become more than a blog/personal page unlike geocities,myspace, AA, xanga and people give way more personal info on it.

i remember xanga used to have trackers to see who's been lurking your page..i kind of like how facebook doesn't have that.

if you read up about it the popularity is perpetuated by media sensationalism due to the cia (who funds facebook)

obviously its just 1 factor of it; there are many factors in popularity after all

At first I kinda of dismissed this movie as a stupid facebook origin story that sensationalized it to the nth degree. But as I read more into it, I find it is more of a personal human story about isolation and betrayal, with facebook added in as a plot device rather than the focus. I just wish they focused more on this topic rather than the social network creation side of it in the trailers and ads.

i remember about 4 years ago everyone started using facebook, i was like "it's just another one of those sites". but there are so many reasons that made it successful. there's no music in the background, no custom design pages, it's plain, ppl can't see your page unless you add them and a bunch of news on the front page. that's a deadly combo, and when you think of it should be common sense. basically it screams, not for kids.

To me, friendster and facebook are totally different.

Friendster was limited and when the society was on a information high, friendster was still staggering trying to expand.

Facebook gave a place for people to update their status and then sharing links, youtube videos, articles and then it moved along with ads placements. Do I even need to remind you all on the farmville and whatever shit you can do on facebook. People are craving for new things, and facebook did just that. Every 6 months to a year, there's a new overhaul while every month, you get a new game.

Lastly, having newsfeed made it possible for people to get updates on people. My question is, how much more 'new shit' can Apple come up with, how many more things can Facebook come up with and will Twitter take over.
