And the over-friendly concierge

Actually, the real Zuckerberg didn't break up at all - he's been dating the same girl since 2003. But since when has Hollywood ever let facts get in the way of a good screenplay?
Indeed; it seems you don't have to be dead to be misrepresented by a movie. But then it turns out the real Zuckerberg was just as bad as his screen equivalent:
The geeky founder of Facebook does admit he knows what it's like to be dumped by girls. It's also true that in the pre-Facebook era, in his sophomore year at Harvard, he created a vicious website called Facemash, which subjected female students to male ridicule.
What was that Pavement lyric about "you've been chosen as an extra in the movie adaptation of the sequel to your life?"
