Zuckerberg takes staff to see ‘Social Network’


Mark Zuckerberg ended up seeing “The Social Network” after all.
The Facebook cofounder and CEO took his staff to a screening, a company spokesperson confirmed.
“To celebrate a period of intense activity at Facebook, we decided to go to the movies. We thought this particular movie might be amusing,” the spokesperson said.
After the film, the group indulged in apple martinis, the same drink Jesse Eisenberg, who plays Zuckerberg, and Justin Timberlake (Napster’s Sean Parker) drink in the Columbia Pictures film.
Zuckerberg had said he wouldn’t watch the movie, written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by David Fincher. But he called the film “fun” in an appearance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” to promote his $100 million donation to New Jersey schools.
On Thursday, the “Social Network” cast landed in London to promote their movie ahead of the Oscars and U.K. BAFTA Awards. There, Timberlake admitted he “would have kicked the door down” for a role in the movie.
