Mark Zuckerberg Says, “I Did Not Start Facebook To Get Girls”

It’s funny how some things get portrayed, right?

The Social Network movie that attempts to relive the story behind Facebook, actually portrays Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s co-founder and CEO, in a way that is less than flattering.

The movie portrays Zuckerberg in a way that says Facebook was created solely to get more girls.

This misrepresentation is something that Zuckerberg took aim at in his later interview with 60 Minutes:

“But I mean, there are hugely basic things that they got wrong, too. They made it seem like my whole motivation for building Facebook was so I could get girls, right? ¬†And they completely left out the fact that my girlfriend, I’ve been dating since before I started Facebook.”

Could it be?

Could something as influential in our lives today as Facebook have been created by someone who was simply trying to get more girls?

It sounds a bit far-fetched to me…

What do you think?
