    Description

    The Facebook Effect is a detailed report on the growth of Facebook. Today, Facebook is considered to be the most impactful phenomena in the 21st century and is the most popular social media forum.

    Summary of the Book

    This book gives readers an analysis of Facebook’s growth from the time of its start. The social networking site turned out to be a social revolution from being just a publishing platform. The author, David Kirkpatrick, has explored various aspects of the company’s history, from its origin to its current global reach. He talks about how Facebook was started in a college dorm by two 19 year olds with the intention of just having some fun. It soon went on to be one of the most influential companies on a worldwide scale. The role of Mark Zuckerberg in taking the company to great heights is highlighted. The author was privileged enough to get information from Mark Zuckerberg and some of his top employees and highlights some very interesting facts about how Mark and his colleagues built Facebook.

    Must read

    The true story or the closest a story can get about FACEBOOK and Mark Zuckerberg. The book is not just about Facebook's fin-nominal success but also teaches the other side of Facebook if it was in some other than Mark's hands.
    The title is apt as it should be.
    Absolute pleasure to read, couldn't put it down till it ended.

    Facebook starting...

    A wonderful book to know the starting peroid of Facebook, a lot different as compared to what it was shown in 'The Social network'.
    Although I lost the interest towards the end as the book concentrated more on marketing and business related issues of Facebook.
    On the whole a must buy for all Facebook fans who want to the real story.
