Aaron Sorkin, who wrote the film, “The Social Network”, which highlighted the making of Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) and its founder, spoke to Emily Chang on Bloomberg. The talk revealed how they made contact with Facebook people for the first time in the making of the movie and their reaction about the whole project. Sorkin said that Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, was “classy” about the whole movie thing. However, as makers of The Social Network, they achieved what they wanted when they first approached Facebook of the matter.
“[…] we met with senior Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) people. And said we are doing this movie would you like to cooperate in making this movie. Badly wanting them to say no, which is what they did. We needed them to say no because if they did cooperate the integrity of the movie would be compromised. The movie, I think kind of humanized them in a way,” said Sorkin.
The Social Network movie didn’t impress Zuckerberg. He recently made a public comment for the first time about the film and said that its content was hurtful to him. According to the Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) found, the film made up a lot of things.
Zuckerberg particularly cited the issue that makers of The Social Network came up with massively inaccurate account about him creating Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) to attract girls. The Social Network chronicled the rise of the world’s largest social network, Facebook.
The film was written by Sorkin and directed by David Fincher. The move in 2011 won three Oscars.
“[…] If you are under 35 you think Mark was a rockstar who did what should have been done to achieve his dream. I don’t think anyone would be comfortable about a movie being made about when they were 18, 19, 20 years old […],” stated Sorkin.
Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), the world’s largest social network, generated revenue of $3.2 billion in the most recent quarter. Analysts expected revenue of $3.12 billion. However, what is worrying is conspiracy theories which are doing the rounds.
Ken Griffin‘s Citadel Investment Group held 4.58 million shares of Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) at the end of the second quarter of 2014.
