Social Network Movie Take-aways

We were able to watch this movie through Ayala Malls and our sponsor via THIS. The Social Network is a story about the founders of the social-networking website, Facebook (allegedly). I was with Willand, and the PhotoBlogger.

Some take-aways during the course of the Film:

  • Blogs are a double edge blade -  a force for Good; can be used to destroy someone's (online) life/reputation or something that can be used against you in the future.
  • Schools as a platform or launchpad for business development, campaigns or ventures (Our country definitely needs this)
  • Who says Job Interviews for internships should be formal?
  • Break your heart + Blogging + Hacking (or Insert Major-specialty-passionate-work here) + drinking [Alcoholic Drink] = SUCCESS
  • Can't go at it Alone (BIZ)
  • Passion+Passion+Passion and some Ridiculous amounts of Stubbornness or Determination and throw in some hard work too!
  • Be prepared to fight/face some enemies along the way, whether one likes it or not.
  • Positive Energy...THE SECRET!!
  • Are these take-aways making sense? Well to me only, I guess..Learn, Reflect, Apply and Make Mistakes!
  • Don't try to make money, instead of doing that, make meaning instead-- or something COOL and awesome, like a Social Network - Facebook!
