THE STORY OF FACEBOOK



We need not stress on the fact that how much Facebook has become an integral part of our lives and how it has revolutionized social networking and mass communication. Modern age communication has gone much beyond phone calls, Skype and even emails! Facebook has provided a dynamic and real time platform for people to connect, share thoughts and ideas and know what’s happening!
Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO and President and of course the founder of Facebook has gifted our planet this addictive and now essential form of networking. Behind this huge success of Facebook (500 million users as of July 2010), is of course, a story of how it all happened. The story of Facebook was published as a book called The Accidental Billionaires by Ben Mezrich and now made into a gripping David Fincher film known as The Social Network.
(Fincher has been one of our favorite directors, Fight Club being not only our favorite Fincher film but also one of the reasons why we started this blog, but more on that in a later post)
