Social Geek Hits Hollywood

The Facebook film, The Social Network hits Australian cinemas on 28 October, explaining the story of a billionaire who built a social network to meet girls, a version of events that Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, disputes.

”I started Facebook to improve the world and make it a more transparent place,” he told a media conference. ”This movie portrays me as someone who built Facebook so I could meet girls.”

Mark Zuckerberg, the world’s youngest billionaire, rents the house he lives in, doesn’t have a TV and has the knack of being awkward in public.

He’s also private, wary, ambitious and brilliant.

The movie, which includes all the legal battles as fellow Harvard students argued for a share of the burgeoning Facebook business, does not portray Zuckerberg in the most flattering manner, due to its reliance on the perspectives of former friends, those lost over the students battles in the formation days of Facebook.

Zuckerberg has already said that he will not see the movie, describing it as fiction.
