Jika ingin mengintip seperti apa isi film tersebut, berikut kami sediakan trailernya :




Untuk plot ceritanya, silahkan dibaca sendiri seperti yang saya copas dari wikipedia :

Mark Zuckerberg, a student at Harvard University and Erica Albright, a student at Boston University, are having drinks at a Cambridge bar. During their conversation, he insults her several times, possibly unintentionally; but she breaks up with him anyway. She tells him he will go on to great success, thinking women don't like him because he's a nerd, but actually women don't like him because he is an asshole.

Back in his dorm room, drinking, he posts unflattering comments about her on his Livejournal account and gets the idea to create a web site to rate the attractiveness of female Harvard undergraduates. Since Harvard lacks a unified database of student names and pictures, Mark hacks into the databases of various residence halls and downloads the pictures. Using an algorithm supplied by his best friend Eduardo Saverin, Mark creates a page called "Face Mash", where people choose which of two women is more physically attractive. The site quickly becomes highly popular among male students and scandalous among female students. By four o'clock the next morning, the "Face Mash" site is getting thousands of hits an hour and crashes the Harvard web servers.

Mark is brought before the Administrative Review Board on charges of Violating Personal Privacy and Disrupting Campus Security. He is put on six months' probation and vilified by most of the women of the Harvard community. However, the popularity of "Face Mash" and the fact that he created it in one night, while drunk, attracts the attention of business partners Cameron Winklevoss and Tyler Winklevoss, identical twins and members of Harvard's rowing team, and Divya Narendra. They are looking for a programmer to help create a new web site "The Harvard Connection" and explain to Mark the premise of the site. They also point out it will be an opportunity to redeem his good name following the "Face Mash" scandal, and he agrees to help them. Soon, Mark approaches Eduardo, who has been invited to pledge the Phoenix S-K Final Club, with an idea for an online social networking tool he calls "The Facebook". It would be exclusive to those with a harvard.edu email account because "Face Mash" was successful because site visitors knew the women featured; and social connections will be made by invitation only, eliminating any invasion of privacy. Eduardo agrees to help Mark and gives him $1,000 seed money.

While writing the programming for Facebook, Mark dodges the Winklevosses and Narendra; and the three investors become concerned about what he is doing. Zuckerberg and Saverin eventually launch The Facebook, distributing the link to Saverin's connections at the Phoenix S-K. The site is well received and quickly spreads throughout the student body. Narendra learns about The Facebook and tells the Winklevoss twins Zuckerberg stole their idea. In an interview in the Harvard Crimson, Zuckerberg states part of his motivation for the new site is to atone for his wrong-doing in the "Face Mash" incident. This is precisely how the Winklevoss twins had presented their business opportunity to him, and they take Mark's statement as deliberately flaunting his theft of their idea. Cameron and Divya want to sue Zuckerberg for intellectual property theft; but Tyler, who insists they are "gentlemen of Harvard", says they must first send a cease and desist letter.

At a lecture by Bill Gates, a female student, Christy Lee introduces herself and her best friend, Alice to Eduardo and Mark, Christy is impressed at meeting the Facebook creators and invites them for drinks at a bar. Christy and Eduardo decide to meet in the bar's public toilet to have sex. While the women straighten up after their sexual encounter, Eduardo and Mark marvel that they know have "groupies." While waiting for their dates, Mark sees Erica Allbright drinking with friends. He tries to talk to her, but she rebuffs him, recounting the hurtful things he had said about her in his blog postings. Chastened, Mark leaves with Eduardo and the girls and head to Mark's room where they outline the structure of the company and their plan for moving forward. As Facebook grows in popularity, they expand to other schools in the Northeast, and Eduardo suggests that they include Stanford University in Palo Alto California in order to attract the attention of Silicon Valley venture capitalists.

As Facebook continues to grow in popularity, the Winklevoss twins and Narendra become more angry at seeing their idea advance without them. Tyler still refuses to go along with a lawsuit, instead accusing Zuckerberg of violating the Harvard student Code of Conduct. Through their father's connections they arrange a meeting with then-Harvard President Larry Summers, who is dismissive of their concerns and sees no potential value in Facebook.

Through Christy Lee, who is now Eduardo's girlfriend, Eduardo and Mark arrange a meeting with Napster founder Sean Parker. Eduardo is skeptical of Parker, noting the man's problematic personal history and his troubled history with the companies he has been involved in. Mark, however, is charmed, as Parker presents a vision of Facebook which largely agrees with Mark's own expansive vision. Parker also suggests dropping the article "the" from the site's title.

While Eduardo stays in New York to try and arrange advertising support for the site, Mark Zuckerberg and Dustin Moskovitz move the company's base of operation to Palo Alto. When Eduardo visits from New York, he is dismayed to discover that Sean Parker is living at the house and is making business decisions for Facebook. After a falling out with Mark, Eduardo freezes the bank account which he had set up for the company and returns to New York. Upon returning to New York, he gets into an argument with Christy, who Eduardo had previously described as 'insanely jealous.' Christy accuses Eduardo of cheating on her while out in California and cites his Facebook profile, which lists his status as "single" as evidence. Eduardo says he doesn't know how to update his profile, a claim Christy doubts. Angered, Christy sets fire to Eduardo's bed. As Eduardo extinguishes the fire, Mark informs him that they have secured money from an angel investor.

In England for a rowing competition, the Winklevoss twins are outraged that Facebook has expanded to universities in the United Kingdom thus decide to sue Facebook. Returning to Palo Alto, Eduardo signs papers outlining the new corporate structure, including reduced shares for him and Mark and single-digit share percentages for Sean Parker, Dustin Moskovitz, and new investor Peter Thiel. Some time later, Eduardo learns that Mark and Sean have authorized a new stock issue which has reduced his share of the company from a third to less than one percent. He furiously confronts both Mark and Sean and leaves Facebook determined to sue. Later, at a party to celebrate the one millionth subscriber milestone, Sean Parker and several Facebook interns get ready to snort cocaine, and presumably have sex, however the police arrive at the raucous party after responding to a noise complaint. The police arrest Parker and the interns after finding the cocaine, news which does not please Mark.

The film ends with Mark sitting in a conference room at his lawyer's office, where he has been present for depositions in the two lawsuits which Eduardo and the Winklevoss twins have brought against him. A junior lawyer for the firm informs him that they will be settling with Saverin, since the more sordid details of Facebook's founding will make Mark unsympathetic in a jury trial. She then informs Mark that he isn't an "asshole", he just wants to be one, reminding him of Erica Albright. As she leaves, Mark sends Erica a friend request on Facebook. He sits there, refreshing the page, waiting for her to respond
