The Facebook Effect

I am not sure how many of you who have seen the ‘Social Network’ would bother reading David Kirkpatrick’s book ‘The Facebook Effect‘. I finished it a week or so ago and learned quite a bit about the company whose site I visit regularly, not to say several times a day. Kirkpatrick stayed with the company and interviewed the key players, including Zuckerberg’s team and investors in Facebook like Peter Thiel. Apart from finding out about Facebook and how Zuckerberg while in his early 20s was able to raise huge amounts of money one also obtains insights into the way the investors work and make decisions. Overall, a worthwhile read. Time for me to watch the movie…
