* {{Irony}}: Erica's statement that Mark acts "as if every thought that tumbles through [his] head was so clever it would be a crime for it not to be shared" mirrors a common complaint of Facebook (and also Twitter) detractors.#

* PragmaticAdaptation: The film deviates from what actually happened in RealLife (see VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory), but the overall film is more of a interpretive look at the events & people behind Facebook.

Added DiffLines:

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Chrissy's crazy possessiveness over Eduardo is PlayedForLaughs, with Eduardo having to juggle a phone call while she sets his gift on fire treated in a goofy light. A common occurrence in Sorkin's works, a comedy scene with the genres inverted is nigh unthinkable.

* SpiritualSuccessor: To ''Film/FightClub''. Essentially, ''Film/TheSocialNetwork'' could be interpreted as ''Fight Club'' for nerds.
** Maybe ''Film/PiratesOfSiliconValley'', too?
** The comparisons to ''Film/CitizenKane'' can also fit in that some critics noted that both films are about the tragic rise of the most powerful media mogul of their time (Kane being a [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed thinly-veiled]] version of William Randolph Hearst).
