The Internet boom has made millionaires and billionaires out of the most unlikely people; and if the leaked screenplay of the movie The Social Network is to be believed, then Facebook Mark Zuckerberg was as unlikely as unlikely could be.
Mark Zuckerberg rose to fame when, at the age of 23, he founded the most popular social networking site today – Facebook. Who doesn’t know about Facebook? Who is not on Facebook? Heck, even my in-laws have a Facebook account!
Anyhow, with popularity comes controversy, and Zuckerberg has gotten more than his share – probably rightly so. Certain changes in the settings of Facebook has riled up many people, worst of all the privacy settings.
With this movie in the works, though, it looks like Zuckerberg is about to taste a dose of his own medicine. While he is scrambling for ways to alleviate the fears (and the ire) of the hundreds of millions of Facebook users, the screenplay of the movie of his life – albeit an exaggerated version of it – has leaked. Unfortunately for Zuckerberg, it portrays him as an insecure sex addict. How worse can it get?
The movie is being produced by Kevin Spacey and directed by David Fincher. As for what Zuckerberg thinks about the movie? He has been silent so far.
People may poke fun at him all they want, but he IS worth $4 billion. At the end of the day, this insecure geek just might have the last laugh after all.
