  • Sean Parker

  • Drop the "The." Just "Facebook." It's cleaner

  • Sean Parker was going to put Facebook out there. He was doing the public relations for Mark. When they met up the first to time to talk about joining a partnership together, the last thing Sean said was to drop “the” and make it just Facebook. I think this is interesting because Mark originally called it The Facebook, and to just meet someone and to have them have that much of an influence on you.

Recommendation: I would give this book five stars. I love it, and its interesting to see what these people go throw who make things on the internet.

Movie Differences: The movie says that Mark has a girlfriend, and that she was the main reason he created the site Facemash. In the book, there was never a girlfriend or any specific reason he made the site. He was bored in his dorm room and drunk.

There are not any details about the actual history of Mark or any of the characters in the movie.
