Though Mark made the decision to set up this $100 million education grant months ago, many people might question the timing of his announcement given the upcoming release of The Social Network, an unauthorized film about the founding of his company, Facebook. But Mark says the two are unrelated.
"It's a movie; it's fun," he says. "A lot of it is fiction, but even the filmmakers will say that. They're trying to build a good story, but I'm going to promise you, this is my life, so I know it's not so dramatic."
Watch as Mark takes cameras inside his home and Facebook headquarters.
Despite what may be in the film, Mark says most of his time over the past six years has been spent focusing, working hard and coding Facebook. "Maybe it would be fun to remember it as partying and all this crazy drama," he says. "Maybe it will be an interesting story."
