About the Event
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 Facebook has grown into a tech giant, the largest social media platform and one of the most gargantuan companies in the world. And 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.
Renowned tech writer Steven Levy had unprecedented access to Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg for three years. In his new book, he delivers the definitive history of Facebook. Based on hundreds of interviews inside and outside the company, Levy’s sweeping narrative digs deep into the whole story of the company that has changed the world and reaped the consequences.
