The social network is a movie directed by David Fincher, which tells the story of how Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook in one small room while studying at Harvard. He put his computer science skills to questionable use by hacking into Harvard’s security network, where he copied the student ID images used by the dormitories and used them to populate his new website [facemash].

In later facemash, enabling site visitors to rate the attractiveness of female classmates after being dumped by his girlfriend. Day by day facemash started becoming popular and  come with a social networking site, this how facebook started.

According to a transcript ” I was just trying to help connect people at colleges and a few schools. “That was a basic need, where I looked around at the internet and there were services for a lot of things that you wanted,” says Zuckerberg.

Fundamental Takeaway:

From a SMALL idea to getting initial funds, and turning into Facebook, makes it one of the best business movies for entrepreneurs. Everything starts from small and turn into big we never think it could be so much big we never thought of. So always its the idea that matters. Always work for your ideas no ideas if someones like it or not.
