Ringkasan Sejarah dan Kronologi Facebook :

THE King of Social Media. Facebook sekarang telah menjadi rangkaian social paling popular di dunia sekarang... Buktinya, sampai kini jumlah Facebooker ( pengguna Facebook ) sudah mencapai lebih dari setengah milion ! Jumlah itu jauh lebih besar dari pesaing terdekatnya iaitu Twitter yang baru punya 190 juta pengguna. Angka pengguna Facebook juga lebih besar dibandingkan MySpace dengan 117,6 juta orang atau Friendster yang jumlah penggunanya sekitar 100 jutaan orang.

Jumlah angka pengguna yang semakin meningkat ini menyebabkan Facebook menjadi salah satu laman paling polpular di dunia., laman pencatat ranking dan perekam lalu lintas internet global menempatkan Facebook sebagai laman kedua paling popular di dunia setelah Google.

Atas fenomena ini maka terlahirlah filem The Social Network.....Filem yang menceritakan kisah hidup Billionaire yang tidak terjangka ini.....Kisah hidup dan cabaran Mark Zukerberg asalnya....

Sekarang 500 juta lebih lainnya penduduk bumi mempunyai akaun Facebook. Ini menandakan, jika Facebook sebuah negara, Facebook negara berpenduduk terbesar ketiga di dunia setelah China dan India .

Facebook adalah salah satu aplikasi paling popular di internet. Jika semula internet hanya menyediakan kita informasi tiada terkira dan sarana berkirim surat, Facebook membuat kita “tinggal” di internet. Kita punya “rumah” Facebook masing-masing dengan teman-teman kita sebagai tetangga. Film ini menyimpulkan dengan baik bagaimana Facebook membentuk manusia ber-evolusi untuk urusan tempat tinggal: We lived in farms, then we lived in cities, and now we're gonna live on the internet! (Kita dulu tinggal di peternakan, lalu kita tinggal di kota, dan sekarang kita tinggal di internet!)

Filem yang ditunggu selama ini telah muncul....The Social Network..memang mantap dan meletup..Oleh kerana aku terlibat dalam bidang yang sama dengan Mark Zukerberg , jadi filem ini menjadi pembakar semangat untuk menjadi Unexpected Billionaire..hahahah

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. From director David Fincher and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin comes The Social Network, a film that proves you don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies. The film is produced by Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti, Michael De Luca, and Ceán Chaffin and based on the book "The Accidental Billionaires" by Ben Mezrich.

Every age has its visionaries who leave, in the wake of their genius, a changed world - but rarely without a battle over exactly what happened and who was there at the moment of creation. In The Social Network, director David Fincher and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin explore the moment at which Facebook, the most revolutionary social phenomenon of the new century, was invented -- through the warring perspectives of the super-smart young men who each claimed to be there at its inception. The result is a drama rife with both creation and destruction; one that purposefully avoids a singular POV, but instead, by tracking dueling narratives, mirrors the clashing truths and constantly morphing social relationships that define our time.

Drawn from multiple sources, the film moves from the halls of Harvard to the cubicles of Palo Alto as it captures the visceral thrill of the heady early days of a culture-changing phenomenon in the making -- and the way it both pulled a group of young revolutionaries together and then split them apart. In the midst of the chaos are Mark Zuckerberg (JESSE EISENBERG), the brilliant Harvard student who conceived a website that seemed to redefine our social fabric overnight; Eduardo Saverin (ANDREW GARFIELD), once Zuckerberg’s close friend, who provided the seed money for the fledgling company; Napster founder Sean Parker (JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE) who brought Facebook to Silicon Valley’s venture capitalists; and the Winklevoss twins (ARMIE HAMMER and JOSH PENCE), the Harvard classmates who asserted that Zuckerberg stole their idea and then sued him for ownership of it.

Each has his own narrative, his own version of the Facebook story - but they add up to more than the sum of their parts in what becomes a multi-level portrait of 21st Century success - both the youthful fantasy of it and its finite realities as well.

One drunken night in October of 2003, having just broken up with his girlfriend, Mark hacks into the university’s computers to create a site that forms a database of all the women on campus, then lines up two pictures next to each other and asks the user to choose which is "hotter". He calls the site Facemash, and it instantly goes viral, crashing the entire Harvard system and generating campus-wide controversy over the site’s purported misogyny, and charges that Mark, in creating Facemash, intentionally breached security, violated copyrights and violated individual privacy. Yet in that moment, the underlying framework for Facebook is born. Shortly after, Mark launches, which will spread like wildfire from one screen to the next across Harvard, through the Ivy League to Silicon Valley, and then literally to the entire world.

But in the chaos of creation comes passionate conflict -- about how it all went down, and who deserves recognition for what is clearly developing into one of the century’s signal ideas - conflict that will divide friends and spur legal action.

To forge a palpable sense of that fog of creation, of history still being written, Sorkin and Fincher collaborated on a carefully constructed, non-aligned storytelling style that intentionally does not choose sides. Instead, the film presents a consortium of equally tricky narrators - each of whom believes he is in the right and that his particular memories are the truth of the matter - while leaving the larger questions of what really happened entirely open for the audience.
