Facebook movie historically inaccurate, say founders

Facebooks co-founders Mark Zuckerberg and Dustin Moscovitz are not very enthusiastic about the much awaited flick The Social Network.


Sydney, July 19 : Facebook's co-founders Mark Zuckerberg and Dustin Moscovitz are not very enthusiastic about the much awaited flick The Social Network.

Moscovitz published an assessment of the film on a Qand A site, saying the trailers looked "a lot more exciting" than the actual goings-on during Facebook's earlier days.

Zuckerberg, who is currently Facebook's CEO, had some negative comments about the upcoming movie when he took the stage at the D conference in June. He said he wished the film hadn't been made.

While Moscovitz hasn't panned the movie downright, he clearly suggests it is anything but historically accurate.

"It is interesting to see my past rewritten in a way that emphasises things that didn't matter," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted him, as writing.

These "things that didn't matter" refer to a breach of contract/IP theft lawsuit brought by fellow Harvard students Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss in 2004.

Calling the movie a "dramatisation of history," Moscovitz said: A lot of exciting things happened in 2004, but mostly we just worked a lot and stressed out about things; the version in the trailer seems a lot more exciting, so I'm just going to choose to remember that we drank ourselves silly and had a lot of sex with coeds."

Taking about the film's portrayal of Zuckerberg, Moscovitz wrote: "The plot of the book/script unabashedly attack him, but I actually felt like a lot of his positive qualities come out truthfully in the trailer (soundtrack aside). At the end of the day, they cannot help but portray him as the driven, forward-thinking genius that he is."

Moscovitz currently heads up Asana, a Silicon Valley startup, that builds project management software.
