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, Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in history, but for this entrepreneur, success leads to both personal and legal complications.

While the acting of many of the actors in this movie is impressive, the movie itself falls flat and is disappointing! I expected a better movie!
Mark Z. is definitely not a likeable person in any way! In fact, he is very passive-aggressive in practically all his relationships! He may well be driven and talented when it comes to the computer programming and designing, but when it comes to the most important or even in working relationships, sooner or later he will make you pay in a dramatic way if you ever make him angry or disappoint him! It does not matter if the other person does not even know that he/she upset him! He will never tell you, but stab you later! No one is immune! Mark leaves people guessing just how he feels about them, until that moment of the "pay-back"! So, since the main subject of this movie is so unlikeable, it makes the whole movie suffer!
The only person one could feel some emotion and sympathy is for Eduardo, the co-founder of the Facebook! He is the only Friend, a loyal, caring Friend, Mark had! And, Mark had tanked that Friendship royally!
While there are interesting moments in this movie, as a whole it just does not live up to its promise, despite the great casting and acting!

Take-home messages from this one: Remember who your real friends are, be choosy about who you have stay over and, love it or hate it, fb is here to stay.

Made me proud I don't use FB. What a horrible human being Zucker seems to be! Good movie, though, even for people like me who hate the intrusiveness and data mining and overshare culture of sites like FB.

This is a very engaging story, or should I say mystery, about who actually started Facebook. Was Mark Z. the brains behind the social media revolution or did he steal this idea from his friends and colleagues (fellow students)? Good acting, kept my attention. Entertaining but not 100% factual.

One of Fincher's greatest, but then again, almost all of his films are great; the man is an amazing director. Very well written screenplay by Aaron Sorkin; definitely one of the best screenplays in recent history. The score is also great, the collaboration between Trent Reznor and David Fincher never fail to impress. I, personally, found this movie to be very entertaining. "The Social Network" doesn't have the same vibe as Fincher's thrillers, but it still kept me intrigued.

This movie is not solely about Facebook; the other reviewers who think this were probably not actually watching. There are many themes of friendship and betrayal; this movie is pretty dark if you truly delve deep into it.

I enjoy Jessie Eisenberg as an actor. I found his character to be quite cocky in this movie, but I enjoyed it. He pulls it off well. Good story!
