The Social Network

You don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies


The Social Network
Facebook is the world's most popular social web site. Well, for now, anyway. However controversy has dogged the founders since the beginning, as different people and their ideas played a part in its birth. Some of these people were sidelined and resorted to the courts once they smelled the megabuck. This is that story. Would you like to be my friend (for now)?
