Guess What?! I Went To See The Social Network . . .

So I went to see the movie, “The Social Network” (based on Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg) last night and I’ve got to tell you….It’s crazy to see ME, Erica Albright being played in a movie! Although watching my character on screen is somewhat bitter sweet, it did bring back many awesome memories. Oh do I miss my college years because looking back, I feel so old!! lol

So now that I’ve seen the movie, I can definitely tell you that there are a lot of truths to it and a lot was made up by Hollywood! It really is based on a true story. My character, Erica Albright, is in the very first scene of the movie and Mark Zuckerberg and I did break-up over dinner. I really don’t think that he went home and was so upset that he started writing theFacebook, but I do not know for sure. All I can say is that night, Mark created such a stir on his campus that I heard all about it on MY campus!

As for the second scene of me at dinner with my friends, that is partially true. I WAS at dinner with my friends but I never blew Mark off. It cracks me up that Hollywood has to make up the most non-significant stories to make the movie that much better.

What do you think…do I look like the girl that played me on Facebook?

Yours Truly,

Erica Albright

    Are you sure that the second scene did not really happen?
    If you are true, then he would not have expanded Facebook.

    I would like thank you for being a person who really instilled Mark with a fire to expand Facebook. What do you do, these days?

    I tried Googling a number of times. But, all I could find was the pics and URL’s which linked me to the actress who gave life to your role in ‘The Social Network’.

    It would be nice to hear from you.

    Love,
    Praveen

    Erica i´ve just watched the film at HBO and i liked it so much much more your role, but i would like to share one thought with you… as the film showed us the behavior of Mark Zuckerberg it makes me think that he was a total selfish, untrust, and miserly as he behaved with his friend Eduardo and it made me to think… Gosh!! i should quit Facebook because i don´t want to give any cent more to that man !!! buuuuuuuuuuuuut…. guess what! i can´t!!! cause it is my only way of keeping in touch with my old and new friends!!! hahahahhaa… well from the end of the world CHILE i send to you my greetings and blessings. JACKIE

    I dont think you are very nice. Honestly, I truly believe that Mark is a much better person. Well, look where he is now and where you are. One’s a billionaire and the other is…..well……..you get it.

      And your view about Mark and Erica is by watching the movie “the Social Network” ???? For the love of god, you haven’t even met any one of them and you go so far as to compare the two of them ????
      I am not gonna call you any names since I too don’t know anything about you. But I would advice you to be cautious of what you say on the internet. That is why Mark got into trouble, remember????

      At least learn from that.

      Money doesn’t make one a better person. In fact, Erica is a better person. Maybe Mark got better now, but with the way he treated her, she deserved better. Money is just paper. At least you know that she’s loved for who she is, not for what she has done. I’m a genuine fan of hers. There’s no doubt he’s an intelligent person, but she’s a better one for sure, and she’s probably more intelligent than him in many other respects.

    I know you are motivated mark to do a Facebook indirect, the Angry can do that.

    Wish you the best you.

    Hi Erica
    I saw all the photos and red the posts. I watched “Social Network”
    maybe Mark Zuckerberg made up Facebook but This does not mean he is a successful person. He failed to attract you and i think he is loser.
    Erica your are very beautiful and smart that Caused you understood Mark isn’t suitable for you.
    I hope you will always be successful.

    I really appreciate this website. I can tell it’s candid, and at the same time a very easy read that it’s enjoyable and a bit exciting. I was a psych major and I received my certification as a Family Crises Counselor because I’m genuinely interested in help us in the U.S. understand us in the U.S. Business is very important, but we also need to care and understand ourselves and the people around us to progress, because when we fail to understand each other and care about each other the economy will suffer and people will not be able to afford to be consumers. So this website, to me, represents the very real and human side of a gigantic octopus that is covering our globe, This octopussy (Or is it Octopi’) can actually be used to help people and the environment to which we live. I hope to communicate with the author for humanity’s sake. Good luck! ~Black Genius

    Hey,

    Yes, you do look like the girl in the movie but you’re more beautiful. Haha — that’s Hollywood for you, but it didn’t seem like your character to blow him off, so I didn’t really believe that anyway. I’m sure it must have been weird seeing yourself on the big screen!

    Well of course, we can’t be sure of what he did when he left you — but despite his big dream getting in the way, he did love you it seemed.

    Wow Kagney. It sounds to me like you have the reasoning of someone with Antisocial Personality Disorder (which isn’t a good thing really) – equating financial reward with being “a good person” pretty much of puts you in the sociopathic end of our own real life social network. You might want to take Bob Hare’s psychopath test to verify for yourself. Then think twice before posting nasty comments to people you don’t know. Best of luck. Sounds like you’ll need it with that attitude.

    I never saw ‘the social network’. I quit facebook a long time ago, and I’m not interested in the man behind it.That said, I was linked to a vid of the scene where you supposedly broke up with him. I’m kinda disappointed it’s made up ’cause that Erica was badass! And Mark was an asshole. He got it good.

    Hello Erica, if this really is you and not some spam, I would like to say that I am sorry for whatever truthfully did happen between you and Mark. Although I am a huge fan of the movie, screenplay, actors, and so on, I always give the people the characters are based on the benefit of their own explanations. Everyone has their side to the story. So whatever yours is, Mark’s is, Eduardo’s is, the Winklevii and so on, I am always understanding and open when it comes to hearing everyone’s side. So you don’t have to worry that I am some empty headed fan who will believe the first thing she sees or reads. Good luck to you and everyone else who was a part of the Facebook story.
