The Facebook Effect: The Inside Story of the Company That Is Connecting the World

With more than 500 million active users (and half a billion total) and a recently released movie, it sometimes seems like Facebook is everywhere. Not bad for a program originally meant as a collaborative online directory for Harvard students. The story of how Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg took the world by storm forms the backbone of this book, The Facebook Effect: The Inside Story of the Company That Is Connecting the World, which Booklist calls "an intriguing, almost participatory read." If you want to learn about the growth of this hugely powerful networking site--the collaborations, conflicts, and controversies, its founders and investors--you'll want to start here, for author David Kirkpatrick had complete access to Zuckerberg himself.
