    In little more than half a decade, Facebook has gone from a dorm-room novelty to a company with 500 million users. It is one of the fastest growing companies in history, an essential part of the social life not only of teenagers but hundreds of millions of adults worldwide. As Facebook spreads around the globe, it creates surprising effects, even becoming instrumental in political protests from Colombia to Iran.

    Kenneth says: "Great history, poor analysis. TERRIBLE recording."

    Barely funded, technologically inept, conceptually derivative, and driven by rivalries, the company that was to morph into the biggest Internet site in the world had an unlikely beginning. This is the fascinating and surprising story that includes all the elements of a great business narrative: obsessive characters from co-founders Tom Anderson and Chris DeWolfe to Rupert Murdock, relentless and unlikely innovation, and dizzying back room deal-making; all centered around an epic battle for control.

    Overall

    Great info - Little Hard to Follow - the read gets easier and easier, well research.

    little fragmented jumping from one person to another, quick to little transitions.

    I'm techie and in the space, so i found it very entertaining and informative. I can see how others may find it hard to follow as the author jump from one person to person to another, ie my space founder, then the founders of the company that my space founders work at, ie rupert murdoch back story
