The youth of today no longer print out pictures and make photo albums or call friends to invite them to a party. In fact the word friend has even taken on a whole new meaning. All of this has changed because of Facebook. What was once a social network geared towards college students, today, Facebook attracts users from as young as elementary school to technically-inclined octogenarians. Though social networks are a dime a dozen in today’s internet-infatuated society, none can claim the cultural changes that Facebook has brought about. Considering that it is only 6 years old yet has totally revolutionized global culture, there is obviously a remarkable story to be told. And now, Sony Pictures has bought the rights to this piece of history.Directed by David Fincher, The Social Network will hit theaters on October 1st. The movie will tell the story of the Facebook co-founders. The film will focus on the journey of co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, a student at Harvard University who originally came up with the Facebook concept. This year 26-year-old Zuckerberg became the world’s youngest billionaire with an estimated net wealth of 4 billion. During the early days of Facebook, Zuckerberg faced a number of obstacles, both legal and personal. Zuckerberg will be played by Jesse Eisenberg and co-founders Dustin Moskovitz and Eduardo Saverin will be played by Joseph Mazello and Andrew Garfield. Justin Timberlake will also star in the movie, playing the role of Sean Parker, the president of Facebook. With the tagline “you don’t get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies,” we certainly see the makings of a dramatic recounting of the early days of this social revolution.
