MODEL ANSWER BAND 8
To tell you the truth (I have to admit), I am a couch potato (person who watches a lot of television) who prefers to sit alone all day long to watch all kinds of movies rather than going out with friends, therefore, I have watched a plenty of films. There is one film called The Social Network which left a profound impression on (=impress) me.
The movie portrays the founding of social networking website (the use of websites to communicate with other people and make friends) Facebook and the resulting lawsuits. I have a Facebook profile page, and I usually upload photos and videos which I like. I also use Facebook to catch up with (to communicate with someone by talking on the phone or in person or by exchanging messages) my friends. Because I access my Facebook page at least 2 hours every day, I am curious to know about how Facebook has been founded, and this movie really took me aback (to surprise or shock someone so much).
It all started when Mark Zuckerberg as a sophomore (a student in the second year of a program of study in a college, university) created the social networking site. In a fury (a state of very busy activity) of blogging and programming, what started in his dorm room soon became a global social network and a revolution (a very important change in the way that people do things) in communication, which is now well-known as Facebook.
His success led to both personal and legal complications. He was sued by the twins for theft of intellectual property (someone’s idea, creation, invention, etc., protected by law from being copied by someone else), and by the co-founder who was later squeezed out of the business (o make it impossible for a person or company to continue to do business). So the main part of the film was about the legal disputes and arguments over who had the ideas of founding Facebook and who got the money.
The social network is my go-to (the best person, thing, or place) movie. The movie is a real eye-opener into the world of business to me.
