Description

In his sophomore year of college, Mark Zuckerberg created a simple website to serve as a campus social network. The site caught on like wildfire, and soon students nationwide were on Facebook. Facebook has now grown into a tech giant, the largest social media platform and one of the most gargantuan companies in the world, with a valuation of more than $576 billion and almost 3 billion users. In light of recent controversies surrounding election-influencing ‘fake news’ accounts, the handling of its users’ personal data, and growing discontent with the actions of its founder and CEO, never has the company been more central to the national conversation. Based on years of reporting and interviews with Facebook’s key executives and employees, this book digs deep into the story of the company that has changed the world and reaped the consequences.
