Perhaps only a bright genius who is simply completely lacking in social etiquette or awareness could have created a computer program to reductively summarize all social connections like Facebook. As David Fincher’s The Social Network sees him, Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook was a guy who viewed just about everything in black and white or 0s and 1s and found a way to apply that to social interactions. To those he knew in his own social circles, his constant 1 and 0 was that he is right and anyone else is wrong.
The new paradigm of social networking is nothing short of a modern day revolution. It opens up a whole new avenue for people to exchange information and latest news. The fact that The Social Network movie has been extremely well-received by movie critics and movie goers alike is certainly a testament to how social networking platforms, particularly Facebook has become such an integral part of our daily lives.
Personally, this movie is closer to heart than most movies that I have watched in the past. I guess it has more to do with the fact that the movie is about my social networking site rather than the movie plot itself.
