Plot outline ( plot summary)<br /> In 2003, Harvard University student Mark Zuckerberg is dumped by his girlfriend Erica Albright. Upset, Mark returns to his dorm where he gets drunk and writes a scathing blog entry about her, which inspires him to create an on-campus website called Facemash that allows the users to rate the attractiveness of female students. However, Mark is caught and receives six months of academic probation after the traffic to the site brings down parts of Harvard's network. His prank also causes him to become vilified among most of Harvard's female community. However, FaceMash's popularity and the fact that Mark created it in one night while drunk brings him to the attention of Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss and their business partner Divya Narendra. The Winklevoss twins invite Mark to their final club, the Porcellian Club, where Mark accepts a job as programmer for a proposed dating website they call Harvard Connection which will be exclusive to Harvard alums.<br /> Mark then approaches his friend Eduardo Saverin and tells him of his idea for what he calls "Thefacebook", an online social networking website exclusive to Harvard University students. He explains that this would mimic the popularity of FaceMash but since signing up would be consensual it would avoid the ethical problems of the earlier site. Eduardo agrees to help Mark, providing $1,000 to help start the site. They distribute the link to Eduardo's connections at the Phoenix S-K final club, and it quickly becomes popular throughout the student body. When they learn of Thefacebook, the Winklevoss twins and Narendra believe Zuckerberg had stolen their idea while stalling on their website. Tyler and Divya want to sue Mark for intellectual property theft, but Cameron convinces them they can settle the matter as "gentlemen of Harvard" without going to court.<br />

Memorable Quotes<br />Mark Zuckerberg: Did you know there are more people with genius IQs living in China than there are people of any kind living in the United States? Erica Albright: That can't possibly be true. Mark Zuckerberg: It is. Erica Albright: What would account for that? Mark Zuckerberg: Well first, an awful lot of people live in China. But, here's my question: how do you distinguish yourself in a population of people who all got 1600 on their SATs? Erica Albright: I didn't know they take SATs in China. Mark Zuckerberg: They don't. I wasn't talking about China anymore, I was talking about me. <br />Marylin Delpy: The site got twenty-two hundred hits within two hours? Mark Zuckerberg: Thousand. Marylin Delpy: I'm sorry? Mark Zuckerberg: Twenty-two *thousand*. Marylin Delpy: [to herself] Wow. <br />Sean Parker: We lived on farms, then we lived in cities, and now we're going to live on the internet! <br />Eduardo Saverin: Mark! Sean Parker: He's wired in. Eduardo Saverin: I'm sorry? Sean Parker: He's wired in. Eduardo Saverin: [picks up marks computer and smashes it on the ground] What about now? Are you wired in now? <br />
