Facebook is the biggest social network in the world. It revolutionized the way we communicate with one another. This movie, The Social Network, is about the story of its founder. It tells the story of a Harvard undergrad and programmer, Mark Zuckerberg, and the birth of the social network Facebook. After only 6 years and 500 million friends later, Mark Zuckerman became the youngest billionaire in history. However, life was not always easy and he made enemies. His success also led to a few personal and legal complications along the way.

The Social Network movie is not yet rated by the MPAA, but it will more than likely be PG-13. It does contain foul language via the Facebook chat network. One of the key clues that this should not be seen by children under 13 is that Facebook does not allow those under 13 on the page. The topic would not be of interest to a younger audience. However, it would be interesting for those who are old enough to participate on Facebook. It is a good documentary, but presented in a way that is interesting. The characters are college students. They drink, they use foul language and they get in trouble.

I would actually recommend The Social Network movie for 15 and above, but if your 13 year old uses Facebook or other social networking they have probably already been exposed to any questionable content in the movie. This movie could be considered a historical piece, and may be one of your only chances to allow your teens to study something historical without being forced into it.
