Facebook Hits the Big Screen

1 Oct

This proves it. Social media is influential. In fact, there has just been a movie created about it, which expected to be a huge hit.  This isn’t a joke. I’m being totally serious. Tonight I’m going to see The Social Network, a film focused on Mark Zuckerberg’s creation of the one of the most popular websites in the world – Facebook. The movie, which was released today is already popular with the critics, receiving an “A” as the average  grade on Yahoo! Movies. The Social Network proves that social media is such an important factor in today’s society and especially important to public relations professionals.

Check out the trailer:

    I will have to admit that I want to see this movie so bad. I feel this is going to be a huge movie, since social media has basically gotten so big recently. This movie proves how something so small can become popular almost overnight. I am glad you posted something about this because I do see Facebook as being a huge footprint in today’s society. I would like to see a review on what you thought of the movie after you watch it. Sometimes the good parts are only in the previews, and I would hate to spend time and money on something not worth it. Let us know!

    This movie is a common topic among my friends. Every friend of mine who has seen the movie says that they enjoyed it. Facebook definitely draws intrigue. The mass number of people who have facebook accounts is staggering. Yesterday, I was talking to an international student from Zimbabwe, and they started talking about the fact that their internet connection sometimes blanked out every few weeks, so they were unable to check their Facebook. It really hit me; Facebook really is a global phenomena.

Since we’re becoming more and more informed about social media, it will help to know the background story behind these ideas.
