Faces behind Facebook

‘Dating you is just like dating a StairMaster’; these were the words said to gauche Mark Zuckerberg by Erica Albright while she was breaking up with him at the initial part of the movie called ‘The Social Network’. This movie is completely based on the life of Mark Zuckerberg who is the co-founder of Facebook and world’s youngest billionaire.

The resentful Zuckerberg quickly heads towards his dorm, in-take couple of beers and start blogging errantly about Albright. This leads him to create a website named as Facemash with the help of his best friend named Eduardo Saverin; while they also hacked a little. This website was actually enabling the male Harvard students to ‘rate’ the photos of their female classmates. The portal received too many hits in such a short period that even the servers of Harvard crashed.

Aware about the circumstances, Mark Zuckerberg was placed on an academic probation. On the other hand, there was a lining to it; the soon to be the Terrible Three- the solemn  Winklevoss twins and their friend asked Mark Zuckerberg to work on creating a social network which is particularly for the Harvard Students named as ‘The Harvard Connection’. Nevertheless, Zuckerberg agreed to help them but he also started working on another social network which he named as ‘The Facebook’. He had the support of Eduardo Saverin and he invested $1,000 in this venture.

‘The Facebook’ turns out to be an instant success, which made the Terrible Three with extreme anguish and they believed that Zuckerberg stole their original and innovative idea and for this the eventually end suing him up.

In the meantime, Zuckerberg and Saverin get apart and this makes him lose his shares nearly to nil in ‘The Facebook’ mysteriously. This was the period when Sean Parker intruded; he was the co-founder of Naspter. Earlier, he advised Zuckerberg to remove the word ‘The’ and just make it ‘Facebook’. Saverin ultimately sues Zuckerberg. Paradoxically, Facebook has been a social network that has been developed to bring people closer and eventually it was helpful in tearing apart the relationship of two best friends.

The saying that ‘there is always a woman behind every successful man’ and this is something we could easily figure out here. It was Albright who made Zuckerberg create Facemash which leaded him to Facebook. This was the time when she told him that she has never heard of it and this compelled him to enable people outside Harvard access it, this eventually got popular globally having 25 plus million users.

The question that arises here is that who actually owned the idea? A person who had a germ that leads to the idea all itself? The one who conceptualized and executed? The one who funded it as without him it would have never taken off? The answer to it is that you always need a group of people to help you execute your ideas. You can even do it alone but for that, you need to be exceptionally strong and powerful in every regard.

The movie ‘The Social Network’ is featured in a series of different flashbacks that are stemmed with the two major lawsuits Zuckerberg faced. This highlights a mode of directions and makes the film gripped. it has been a great Hit!! This was the entire story that leaded to the development of Facebook and made this one idea a tremendous a blockbuster all around the globe!
