Thanks to the great folk over at Columbia Pictures,
I was able to catch a (very) advanced screening
of a movie I've been looking forward to
ever since I found out about it...

The film was even better than I anticipated;
so good, in fact, that I had to share my impressions
on another favorite social network of mine:

"I was an early adopter of Facebook,
perhaps one of the first Filipinos to start “poking” around
the website during those ancient days of early 2006 A.D.

Back then, the pitifully few Pinoy pioneers
didn’t know what to make of Facebook.

All our friends in the Philippines were still on Friendster,
and all our relatives from the U.S, on MySpace.

The hot new social networking site then was Multiply,
which we used like a virtual iPod:
all our music and pictures were stored and shared on that site.

But still, we joined Facebook,
because we could “throw stuff” at each other. It was cool.

Apparently, based on the new film The Social Network,
that’s exactly how the founders themselves,
led by punk-traitor-genius-billionaire Mark Zuckerberg,
felt about their own creation.

At first, they didn’t really know what it was,
or what it was going to be.
But they, too, thought that it was really cool…

As of July 2010,
500 Million people worldwide now agree that Facebook is cool.

And I’m betting that quite a few of them
will think this film is pretty cool, too..."
