Film Profiles Facebook Creator

“The world will soon get to know a lot more about the low-profile billionaire, or at least Hollywood’s version of him.” A film based on Mark Zuckerberg opens Friday in New York.

“The company Mark Zuckerberg founded in his Harvard dorm room six years ago was built on the idea that people would want to share personal information—even very personal information—on the Web. Yet the 26-year-old self-made billionaire has managed to keep a low public profile even as Facebook Inc. shot to stardom in Silicon Valley, catapulting Zuckerberg past Apple Inc.’s Steve Jobs to become the world’s 35th-richest American on the latest Forbes list. That is about to change. ‘The Social Network,’ from director David Fincher and writer Aaron Sorkin, about the messy and contentious founding of Facebook, is making its debut at the New York Film Festival on Friday.”
