Check out the trailer for the new film The Social Network,  a film about the creation and rise of social networking phenomenon Facebook.

It looks pretty good.

The Social Network will hit US cinemas and UK cinemas in October 2010.

  1. I wonder if they will report on the fact that the owner of Facebook called the users of it a bunch of *F***ing idiots for trusting him with their personal data. In case folks do not know it yet, Facebook and Google are part of the NSA. They do not need to spy on folks to a greater extent anymore because people readily supply their personal information on the internet with no quams.

  2. I doubt that Facebook and Google are ‘part of the NSA’ if by that you mean the NSA secretly founded, funded or control these companies. If you mean that the NSA has backdoor access to the data on their servers, well I would not doubt that, wether Facebook or Google know about it or not.

    I actually made a mistake, Facebook and Google are the NSA and other intelligence services, therefore no backdoor is required. The internet was set up by the military industrial complex, it doesn’t belong to the general public, it was birth by the military for military purposes including collecting data on the general public as tapping landline phones and reading faxes wasn’t enough for them. I recommend that you check out this report by the Washington Post on who really runs the show. Your governments are the corporations of your country, Parliament/House Of Lords/Congress/Senate are all purely for show:

    Interesting article. What I got from it was that after 9/11, there was a massive increase in the funding and setting up of government security departments. The article also says that this enterprise is so huge, with competing internal departments, that it is sometimes ineffectual and “nobody in government has a full understanding of it” (like any large bureaucratic organisation, really). Don’t see how any of this relates to Facebook and Google – we’ll just have to agree to disagree on that one!

    Anyway, back to the movie – the trailer looks pretty good. The filmmakers behind it have a decent track record so it should be well made, even if some of it has been “Hollywoodised”.
