Weekly Roundup – October 3, 2010

thesocialnetworkThis was one of the slowest news weeks regarding Facebook that we have had in quite a while. The Social Network, a major motion picture about Mark Zuckerberg and the founding of Facebook was released nation wide on October 1, 2010. The film has received rave reviews by both fans and critics alike. It is hard to say how much of the screenplay is fact or fiction. The writers did release the script to Facebook to get their input, but they refused to change some unflattering scenes at Facebook’s request. I haven’t yet seen the film, but I am very much looking forward to it. If you have seen it, then leave us a comment in the section below, and let us know what you thought about it.

In anticipation of the movie release, there were a couple of stories about Mark Zuckerberg receiving media attention. Here are the stories that we followed:
