Its been out for a good while and my friend got it on blu ray and invited me over today.
So after our revision sessions in school we decided to go round and watch it, and I have to say it was a lot better than I thought it would be!
The idea of facebook or thefacebook as it was originally called was such a simple one but was massive.
It still seems odd to me though that it managed to beat the giant at the time of Myspace but I think it was to do with, as described in the film, exclusive side of facebook.
Originally it was only intended for students at Harvard University and then rapidly expanded to universities across the globe. The story of its creation and the controversy behind the idea supposedly being stolen from some other Harvard students makes it all the better for the film which has been directed well in my opinion.
It makes you think how a simple idea can generate so much money and power so quickly, obviously I dont know any coding or databasing and and couldnt do it myself but the idea of a social network site seems so simple.
Overall though I was pretty impressed with the film and think it is worth a watch!
Sorry for the lack of posts I'm in my exams and really shouldnt be on here! but hey, I have just come back from this weeks pub quiz .. so why not hey!..
