Facebook was one of the few pop culture phenomenons that I resisted as long as possible–like Twilight. To me, it represented a couple of smug Harvard trust-fund kids who made way too much money way too quickly. The kids you shake your fist at when you walk by just to watch them flinch. In the trailer for Social Network, a new movie about Facebook’s birth, friends and fans get to put a pimple-face to the name Mark Zuckerberg (well, actor Jesse Eisenberg) and see what a hot mess this nerd is. In his dorm room in 2003, Zuckerberg began working on what the world now knows as Facebook with his best friend and roomie, Eduardo Saverin. But, as you may have guessed, it didn’t come easy. What began as a way for the duo to be more accepted and stand out in the minds of Harvard’s snotty student body soon began to tear them apart. Zuckerberg built a website around relationships but didn’t know how to maintain his own. He could’ve used Tokii. If Zuckergerg had learned more about his friend, he could have cultivated and deepened their relationship far beyond backstabbing, lawsuits and greed–or he could’ve ditched him before any of that happened. I’d say Zuckerberg learned a valuable lesson here: when big money is involved, 500 million friends and those you thought you could trust quickly become enemies. Oh, and next time take a business compatibility quiz on Tokii.
Tokii is coming soon to all your relationships. Connect with friends, lovers, coworkers, family in one place.
