The movie "The Social Network" provides an insight into the rise of one of the most popular social networks ever created and the many conflicts that occurred during its rise. The main conflict is man vs. man, as Mark Zuckerberg (portrayed by Jesse Eisenberg) is sued by his former best friend Eduardo Saverin (portrayed by Andrew Garfield) and Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss (portrayed by Armie Hammer) for alienating them from their rights to Facebook. However, the conflict of man vs. society is also prevalent, as Mark has various challenges meeting many behavioral norms and cannot live the social life for which he strives. Mark's desire to have a "cool" social life spurs him to align with Sean Parker (portrayed by Justin Timberlake), even at the expense of his old friendships, since Sean is living the life Mark dreams of and is allowing Mark to get a taste of this lifestyle himself. Mark Zuckerberg is brilliant and has expansive technical knowledge, but with his brilliance comes his major weaknesses of arrogance and lack of social skills. He is very determined to succeed and is willing to violate ethical and moral behavioral codes to achieve this goal.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
