FLASH: MARK ZUCKERBERG SPEAKS AT LENGTH ABOUT “THE SOCIAL NETWORK”!

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg participated in the “Startup School” conference at Stanford University on Saturday and — as you can see starting at 5:18 into the video below — was essentially ambushed with a question about the accuracy of David Fincher’s “The Social Network” (Columbia, 10/1, trailer). Talk about awkward! As you can tell from his nearly two-minute-long response, he (a) has seen the film and (b) believes that just about the only thing that it got right was his clothing.

NOTE: Thanks to Margaret Lyons of EW for calling my attention to this development.
