This is a very well-done movie, in that it really gave me a feel of what Harvard looks like from the inside. Also, I liked learning a bit about how Facebook originated. (I had no idea Sean Parker, the creator of Napster, was involved.)

However, at the end, I was left with the feeling of "So What?" After seeing the movie, I concluded that Facebook just isn't important enough to warrant this treatment.

Hell, will Facebook even be around in ten years?

I think David Fincher wanted to make a movie about facebook right away to capture the essence of what facebook is....something that blew up REALLY fast....and what better way to express that than have a movie made about it less than 5 years after it got really popular.

I really want to see this movie. The combination of Fincher, Reznor and Facebook is intriguing to say the least. I've read that the dialogue is very intelligent and fast which I really enjoy. I've only been on Facebook for a couple of months and signed up initially so I could watch someone's short film and while I can't say that it interests me very much it is pretty impressive for what it is and I think it's a bit beyond "popular". I also don't think the movie is about Facebook as much as it is its creator who is the youngest billionaire in history.

I also think Facebook is important in that it's something that seems to make isolation socially acceptable so now it's perfectly normal for kids and adults to lock themselves in their rooms and homes alone. I'm sure people talk about discussions they have on Facebook to other people as if they are regular conversations.
