We chose “The Social Network” because it deals with a lot of group dynamics. These dynamics, such as social cohesion and emotional response, play an important role in how the movie affects its audience. The court room scenes, in which Mark is defending himself against the barrage of questions from judges hired by his friends to sue him, are very emotional and dig right into the heart of not only the viewers, but the actors as well. The betrayal, mistrust and constant bantering between the persons involved has a large effect on the emotional turmoil of an individual. How is the topic relevant to individuals and organizations in general? This topic relates directly to many individuals and organizations that are struggling with a balance of power and trust. Thoughout the creation of facebook, there was a lot of mistrust. When Mark was offered a position by the twin brothers, his lack of response gained their mistrust. When Eduardo came back from New York to discover Facebook had taken a different twist, he felt neglected. All these emotions are typical in a daily work atmosphere. Everyone wants to feel included and important. Employees want a sense of belonging and an emotional connection with their co-workers. The Social Network shows its audience how people in an organized association act when the boundaries of trust and comfort are tested. Literary Analysis Below are 5 articles that support
