Trivia
Justin Timberlake was the only actor who met his real-life character (Sean Parker) before the founding of Facebook and this film. Armie Hammer and Josh Pence met their real-life characters, the Winklevoss twins after filming. The twins enjoyed Hammer and Pence's performance so much they attended a couple screenings of the film.
Share this
At one point, Mark Zuckerberg refers to the Winklevoss brothers as the "Winklevii", facetiously using the Latin plural for nouns ending in 's'. In fact, Zuckerberg is quite the Latin scholar, having excelled in the classics while attending the Phillips Exeter Academy and taking advanced courses in subjects such as Greek and Latin while at Harvard.

Because director David Fincher was unable to find any suitable identical twin actors to play real-life identical twins Cameron Winklevoss and Tyler Winklevoss, two unrelated actors were hired to play each brother - Armie Hammer as Cameron and Josh Pence as Tyler. Fincher thought that Hammer looked more like the real brothers, so for some scenes, the visual effects team photographed Hammer speaking Tyler's lines and created a computer-generated model of his face to paste over Pence's. Traditional split-screen work, with Hammer's separate performances as each brother stitched together in the same frame, was also used.

When the Winkelvi are at the trophy presentation at the Henley Royal Regatta, Josh Pence's face is visible for at least a second as the flash cameras go off.

When Harvard students are using 'face mash', some students can be seen playing the video game Fallout 3. This scene was set during 2003 but Fallout 3 wasn't released until late 2008.

During the Stanford House argument scene between Mark Zuckerberg and Saverin, Saverin's hair and clothes begin soaking wet (from being outside in the rain) to suddenly dry once they step into the hallway.

Quotes
Larry Summers: Well, that's their own stupidity, I should have been there. Well, darkness is the absence of light, and the stupidity in that instance was the absence of me...

Mark Zuckerberg: Ma'am, I know you've done your homework and so you know that money isn't a big part of my life, but at the moment I could buy Mt. Auburn Street, take the Phoenix Club, and turn it into my ping-pong room.

Q
What is the music playing during the regatta in England?
A
It's an orchestral musical composition, "In the Hall of the Mountain King" by Edvard Grieg, performed by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, who composed the film's score. It is from the incidental music that Grieg composed in 1876 for the original stage production of Henrik Ibsen's poetic fantasy "Peer Gynt". It has been used in several other films, most notably Fritz Lang's "M" (1931), and the 1957 made-for-TV film "The Pied Piper of Hamelin". It was also heard in the flop musical film "Song of Norway" (1970). In the UK it is probably best known for being the music from the Alton Towers TV advert. The songs used in the movie can be found here with scene descriptions.
Q
How much sex, violence, and profanity are in this movie?
A
For detailed information about the amounts and types of (a) sex and nudity, (b) violence and gore, (c) profanity, (d) alcohol, drugs, and smoking, and (e) frightening and intense scenes in this movie, consult the IMDb Parents Guide for this movie. The Parents Guide for The Social Network can be found here.
Q
Did Mark really do all those things Eduardo implied he did in the confrontation?
A
This is never explicitly stated. But in a way, the point of the film is not to explain these things directly. This is shown in the final scene where Marilyn, the junior lawyer on Mark's team explains to him how easy it would be for her to win the cases against him, she mentions how she doesn't have to prove anything, just ask the right questions that people will form the answers to in their own minds regardless of what he says. This is very much the trick the film uses too when it's making more serious implications about the actions of the characters. Did Mark steal Facebook? Did Mark try to cheat Eduardo out of Facebook? Did Mark leak the story about the chicken, did he call the cops on Sean's party? Is he an asshole? The film never outright says any of it, just gets you wondering...
