Oh gotta love Facebook

by

This article was about the creator of Facebook, and the dispute that Zuckerberg may not have been truly responsible for the popular Facebook. Also, the article focuses on how Facebook page was created. I thought it was interesting that when they started to develop the page they decided that the site would have to major objectives- “dating” and “connecting”. However, one of the people who claims to have been working on the site with Zuckerberg is claiming that Zuckerberg stole the idea of making facebook into a social networking site.

Honestly, being that facebook is so incredibly popular I can understand why someone would want credit if they had a hand in creating the site. Apprently, Zuckerberg is being targeted as being greedy. Which may be the case. There’s no real way to know who started the site or who isn’t being credited for the idea.

The most interesting parts of the article are when they discuss how the site was made, what it was inspired by, and how technologically savvy the (credited) creator of Facebook really is.

    Are you referring to the Rolling Stone article, “The Battle for Facebook”? Can you post a link to the piece?

    Take a look at: http://www.thecrimson.com/article.aspx?ref=526471. It reads:

    A California-based legal publication revealed Tuesday that Facebook.com paid $65 million to settle accusations that its founder Mark E. Zuckerberg ’07 stole elements from rival social networking site ConnectU to create his multi-billion dollar Web site.
