What people thought about Facebook way back in 2004

Facebook Reviews

I've been on Facebook since 2004, way back when the social network was exclusively limited to those with .edu email addresses. Back in those days, fellow old-timers might remember that using Facebook was markedly different from it is today. Back then, it was possible for users to delete the entirety of a friend's wall. Back then, many of the Facebook features that we now take for granted were incredibly exciting and new, such as being able to tag friends in photos and creating groups. Of course, way back in 2004, photo albums weren't even yet an option. And to think, people somehow lived this way!

Mark Zuckerberg Will Donate Massive Fortune to Own Blinkered Worldview

In a savvy PR maneuver, today Mark Zuckerberg used the birth of his daughter Max to advertise to the world the fact that he’s decided to give away 99% of his Facebook shares (roughly $45 billion today) to charity (over the course of the rest of his life, not all at once). It sounds angelic, but it will probably end up being, mostly, a big waste.

Steve Jobs movie bombs nationwide, looks likely to lose money – Variety

steve-jobs

Despite a strong weekend opening, the Sorkin/Boyle movie Steve Jobs appears to have bombed in its nationwide rollout, grossing just $7.3M against earlier estimates of $19M. That gives it a total take so far of around $10M, which Variety says leaves it unlikely to turn a profit.

The picture cost $30 million to make and at least as much to market. That means that “Steve Jobs” needs to do at least $120 million in order to break even. Given that the film is dialogue-driven and lacks a major star, its foreign prospects seem bleak.

The piece notes that the earlier success of Sorkin’s The Social Network may have created false hopes … 

“The Social Network” benefited from arriving just as Facebook was becoming ubiquitous. In 2010, it opened as everyone was discovering the thrill of over-sharing vacation pictures and political screeds. Even as it hit the zeitgeist, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg remained largely unknown to the general public. The story of the social media platform’s litigious origins had the shock of new.

With Steve Jobs, there have been endless profiles, the Walter Isaacson biography and the earlier Kutcher biopic. The latest movie also opened at a time when there were a lot of great movies competing for audiences. Its one hope now, suggests one analyst, is to remain in theaters until Oscar and Golden Globes nominations are announced, where it is expected to do well.

Universal says that it intends to continue to work hard to promote the movie.

“We are going to continue to support the film in the markets where it is showing strength and we’re going to continue to do it aggressively and proactively,” said Nick Carpou, Universal’s domestic distribution chief.

Steve Jobs convinced Mark Zuckerberg to travel to India when Facebook wasn’t doing well

Mark Zuckerberg Steve Jobs

For some time now, Facebook has faced pressure to dramatically increase the size of its user base. As it stands today, Facebook has about 1.5 billion members across the globe, a figure which represents about 21% of the entire world's population. Consequently, Facebook has long looked toward India as a surefire way to rapidly expand its global reach. With a population of over 1.5 billion people, India is the second most populous country in the world and clearly an important cog in Facebook's continued expansion efforts.

The only problem is that the majority of people in India (an estimated 800 million) still don't have Internet access. Facebook's solution? Provide free Internet access to the masses.

So as part of Facebook's ongoing effort to develop a working and amicable relationship with India, Mark Zuckerberg earlier this week hosted Indian Prime Minister Narenda Modi. If this at all sounds familiar, it's because Modi over the past week has been on something of a Silicon Valley rockstar tour, sitting down for meetings with Tim Cook, newly minted Google CEO Sundar Pichai, and even Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
