The Social Network 2010 - 120 min Dramma
Controversial from the get-go! In the years before Facebook became little more than a lightning rod for criticism, the social media platform and its cofounder Mark Zuckerberg were the subject of the 2010 film The Social Network.
Aaron Sorkin's Oscar-winning screenplay was a cautionary tale about the genius founding of a social media site named Facebook, and the subsequent betrayals of loyalties and accusatory lawsuits. It began with backstory about mean-spirited, 19 year-old Harvard University student and techie nerd Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg), whose initial efforts at social media (after being socially-rejected and dumped by his girlfriend Erica Albright (Rooney Mara)) included the creation of Fashmash - a website to easily rate photographs of students. However, he had illegally hacked into photo files of female Harvard undergrads. Soon after, the site's popularity was recognized by fellow students (and twins), Cameron and Tyler Winklevosses (Armie Hammer) (known as The Winklevi) and their business partner Divya Narendra (Max Minghella), who suggested another version of a campus 'social network' in the guise of a computer dating service - the germinal idea for Facebook. With guidance and support from Napster founder Sean Parker (Justin Timberlake), Zuckerberg succeeded in going on his own and taking Facebook to Silicon Valley's venture capitalists.
Looking at the full universe of teen social media users, we find that 82% of online teens say they are either users of social networking sites like Facebook or users of Twitter.15 This group will be referred to as teen social media users throughout the report.
Older teens (those ages 14-17) are significantly more likely than younger teens to use both social networking sites and Twitter, with older girls in particular standing out from both older boys and from younger teens of either gender.
Girls and older teens continue to be the heaviest users of social media sites. Among teen girls who are social media users, 48% say they visit social networking sites several times per day, compared with 36% of teen boys. Looking at younger teens ages 12-13, 26% use the sites several times per day, while nearly twice as many teens ages 14-17 (47%) use the sites that often.
In addition to asking about their general usage of social networking sites, we also asked the 82% of teens who use social media two follow-up questions about their social media use. First, we asked them to tell us on which site(s) they maintain a profile or account; next, we asked them to tell us which profile or account they use most often. Although Twitter use among teens has grown across several measures (such as general usage and for those who maintain an account), few teens point to Twitter as their primary or most-used account.
