Most people who use the internet are familiar with the name Mark Zuckerberg, for those who aren't, he founded and programmed a social networking website called Facebook. In an extremely short amount of time his bedroom project soon turned into one of the most profitable websites on the internet.
Zuckerberg originally had the idea for Facebook when he was thinking about the end of term year books, literally a book it would be improved upon if the whole idea was made interactive, the idea was born and it wasn't long before his Harvard contemporaries were all signed up and using Facebook as a new way of communication.
Complications often come with success, friendships are lost and often lead to lengthy court trails whenever money is involved. The Social Network demonstrates exactly that, after all you can't get 500 million friends without making a few enemies.
