“If you are on social media and you are not learning, not laughing, not being inspired, or not networking, then you are using it wrong.” -Germany Kent

The Social Network Wars

 

The stories of Facebook’s beginning are etched into pop culture lore.
 
A drunk undergrad, Mark Zuckerberg, created a crude hot-or-not game comparing Harvard coeds (dubbed FaceMash) that crashed the Harvard internetnetwork with its popularity in a few hours.
 
He then (allegedly) stole the idea for Facebook from fellow classmates and rowing Olympians, the Winklevoss twins, who sued Zuckerberg and won.
 
That only added to his legend, complete with his infamous drunk coding binges and all-night parties after he dropped out of Harvard and moved to Palo Alto.
 
He wore flip flops and hoodies to U.S. depositions.
 
There is a lot of myth in the creation of Facebook, but one thing is certain: Facebook has won the social network wars, for now.
