Watch Mark Zuckerberg Respond to The Social Network


He’s kept relatively mum on the movie up until now, but Mark Zuckerberg finally broke his silence about The Social Network.

During a Q&A session at Stanford University, Zuckerberg denied that the creation of Facebook was a result of a break-up, saying he’s been with fiance Priscilla Chan since before he created the social-networking site.

Some aren’t so convinced by Zuckerberg’s claims: Gawker recently called the statement “a documented falsehood,” citing claims from the book The Facebook Effect as evidence.

The movie did get one thing right, however. “It’s interesting, the stuff they focused on getting right,” he said. “Every single shirt and fleece they had in that movie is actually a shirt or fleece that I own.”
