    It is fiction. Movies are not real and those characters are just actors yikes) So, the answer to your question is no

    Definitely not. Hollywood dramatizes everything to make it more appealing to its audience. In the end, he's probably something of what they made him to be, more like socially awkward over a complete a**hole.

    Firstly, the movie did not portray him as the 'bad guy' it was a very enthralling and complex script by Aaron Sorkin where you get to see all sides of the equation- whether it was Mark's logic, perseverance and application of his previously successful social networking principle into the giant that is Facebook, Eduardo's dismay at being sidelined  after contributing the 'formula'because he withdrew the financial support at a crucial moment because he felt ignored, The Winklevoss twins' annoyance that Mark seemingly stole their social networking idea ( for Harvard alumni) into a global phenomenon .. they all had a point.

    The story is a sound ethical debate on good and bad, truth and falsehood, perceptions and trappings of success. Even though it is set in the techno geek world, the themes are age old, almost Shakespearean. As with Shakesepare there are always many sides to the story- there are no black or white characters.. only shades of gray.

    I have just finished a Hub arguing that Mark Zuckerberg deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for the creation of Facebook.(The Jewel in Mark Zuckerberg's crown is the name of the article.) In one instance, Facebook played a crucial role in the revolution in Egypt and may well bring about the improvement of millions of lives in an almost bloodless revolution.
    People we may disapprove of or we even believe are of bad character are sometimes responsible for a lot of good. We should even recognize the good with Nobel Prizes. Trying to make judgments that are based on what we believe to be people's motivations is a mug's game. Not recognizing or rewarding amazing achievements whether they're works of art or bits of technology shouldn't be based solely on our view of their creators' character.
    Whatever the present reality, recognizing someone as a hero can sometime bring about a self-fulfilling prophesy. I believe that the recognition of the good that has come out of Mark's achievement will eventually make him a much better man - whatever his present character! Let's celebrate both him and his invention!

    I use Facebook, and with all the changes made without consulting the users who pay his bills, he's a bad guy alright.
