Summary This book takes us for the first time into the heart of the fast growing information empire of Facebook, inviting us to high level meetings with Mark Zuckerberg; lifting the veil on long nights of relentless hacking and trolling; taking us behind the scenes of raucous company parties; and introducing us to the personalities, values, and secret ambitions of the floppy haired boy wonders who are redefining the way we live, love, and work. By revealing here what is really driving both the business and the culture of the social network, the author answers the biggest question of all: What kind of world is Facebook trying to build, and is it the world we want to live in?
