I Just Saw The Social Network, As Did Facebook's Many Employees

I have just returned home from watching The Social Network with my family and we all agreed that it was a fine movie, there was even sympathy expressed for Mark Zuckerberg as we discussed the film over dinner. While I suppose we'll never know just how much was truth and what was fiction, those who are much closer to the story, the Facebook employees, were treated by the company to a movie day. Yes, Zuckerberg and company paid for Facebook's HQ employees to see the movie on opening day at a local Palo Alto theater complex.

“To celebrate a period of intense activity at Facebook, we decided to go to the movies,” a spokesman, Larry Yu, wrote. “We thought this particular movie might be amusing.” It's actually quite a testament to the company, in my opinion.
