I suppose we have come far enough in the social media world to have a new book-to-movie to anticipate. Or, to use Facebook speak, “like.”
The Social Network, from the director of Fight Club and starring Jesse Eisenberg and Justin Timberlake, will release in over 1,000 theaters nationwide on Oct. 1st. The movie is based on Ben Mezrich’s book, The Accidental Billionaires which tells the story of how the 2003 misadventures of two college kids at Harvard turned into the small startup that is now the social networking phenomenon, Facebook.
You know Facebook. Even your grandma has a profile now. It is the website you undoubtedly see daily on the screen of every computer in your library. Anchor Books will release a new edition of The Accidental Billionaires to coincide with the release of its cinematic counterpart. Add this one to your lists!
Right after you log-off Facebook.
