You may have seen David Fincher’s The Social Network and its portrayal of Mark Zuckerberg as an awkward nerd trying to get girls. Well, that’s Hollywood and they always put their spin on reality. In the real world, Mark has been with the same girl, Priscilla Chan since before he started Facebook, Eduardo Saverin is a billionaire and Mark doesn’t seem too concerned with world of luxury as he lives in a modest, rented house in Palo Alto.
Who is this guy, exactly? And why is he so obsessed with eliminating privacy as we know it and changing how we interact with both friends and strangers alike.
Bloomberg Game Changers follows the career of Mark Zuckerberg from his dorm room at Harvard to his current role as the Chief Executive Officier of Facebook, the world’s largest social network that this week will surpass 600 million users.

It also features interviews with Yuri Milner, the head of Digital Sky Technologies, Michael Wolf, who formerly ran Viacom’s MTV, and David Kirkpatrick, author of the book “The Facebook Effect”.
