The Social Network

My hubby and I watched this movie the other night. I didn't know the story of 'Facebook' till I watched this. It is interesting and I love it very much. However, the actors/actresses talked really fast, especially "Mark Zuckerberg" who speaks like a machine gun. I need to focus and pay full attention to catch what he is talking. Wonder whether he talks so fast in real life too?!

It is sad that he had 'lost' his best friend. Is it true that we will have to lost something or someone in order to have great achievement in life??

On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea.

In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication. A mere six years and 500 million friends later, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history...

... but for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications. Written by Columbia Pictures
