Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin said, "What attracted me to [the film project] had nothing to do with Facebook.
The publisher was simultaneously shopping it around for a film sale. I was reading it and somewhere on page three I said yes. But Ben hadn't written the book yet, and I assumed that Sony was going to want me to wait for Ben to write the book, and I would start a year from now. Ben and I were kind of doing our research at the same time, sort of along parallel lines." However, according to Sorkin, Mezrich did not send him material from his book as he wrote it: "Two or three times we'd get together.
I'd go to Boston, or we'd meet in New York and kind of compare notes and share information, but I didn't see the book until he was done with it.
