"Facebook: The Inside Story" By Steven Levy

Feb 20, 2020

Mark Zuckerberg built the original Facebook in barely one week during his sophomore year of college. Today, with almost 3 billion users, Facebook is an omnipresent global force. The company began with a gloriously idealistic goal: to connect the world. But Facebook has recently been bombarded with controversies surrounding election-influencing "fake news" accounts, the handling of its users' personal data, and the enormous power of its founder/CEO over what the world sees and says.

For three years, celebrated tech writer Steven Levy has had unprecedented access to Facebook’s key executives and employees, including Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg. His new book "Facebook: The Inside Story" digs deep into the company’s history, revealing fascinating new insights as he tells the full story of the company that has changed the world and reaped the consequences.
