With a user base that exceeds that of the United States population by a million users, Facebook is a place with individuals from all walks of life, from politicians to the baby boomer next door, it seems that everyone is on the social network. The rise of Facebook will be chronicled in a one-hour special by NBC News Correspondent Lester Holt on CNBC airing at 9PM ET on Thursday, January 6.
The documentary will cover Facebook’s story as told by founders, friends, users, and foes. As Facebook’s influence on society continues to grow so will documentaries like these. I’m looking forward to it, are you?
Here’s a list to some preview clips of the documentary:
- Chris Hughes on ‘The Social Network’ – The Facebook co-founder talks about truth and Hollywood fiction.
- Zuckerberg’s First TV Appearance – Harvard sophomore (at the time) Mark Zuckerberg introduces Facebook to a national audience on CNBC’s now-defunct show “Bullseye.”
- Quiting Facebook – Los Angeles-based social-media marketer Alana Joy shows how Facebook makes breaking up hard to do when she tries to leave the social network for good.
