** After failing to find suitable twin actors, David Fincher was originally going to have Josh Pence use his own face and voice for Tyler Winklevoss and have the twins be fraternal. However, Fincher decided the twins had to be identical to reflect real life so they went with the doubling Armie Hammer's face on Pence's body.

* BlackSheepHit: Fincher sees ''Film/TheSocialNetwork'' as this and is amazed that this became his most commercially and critically successful film, when it's so different from his other films, and what he's interested in:
--> '''Fincher''': "Itís a little glib to be a film. Letís hope we strove to get at something interesting, but [[Film/TheSocialNetwork Social Network]] is [[ItsNotSupposedToWinOscars not earth-shattering]]. Film/{{Zodiac}} was about murders that changed America. After the Zodiac killings in California, the Summer of Love was over...No one died during the creation of Facebook. By my estimation, [[FirstWorldProblems the person who made out the worst in the creation of Facebook still made more than 30 million dollars]]...And besides, on Social Network, [[MagnumOpusDissonance I didnít really agree with the criticsí praise]]. It interested me that Social Network was about friendships that dissolved through this thing that promised friendships, but I didnít think we were ripping the lid off anything. The movie is true to a time and a kind of person, but I was never trying to turn a mirror on a generation."

People" until David Fincher realized the irony of using a song nostalgic to ''him'' in a movie meant to capture the zeitgeist of 21st century youth.

* FollowTheLeader: Back in 2010, the film's trailer creatively used an ''a cappella'' cover of Music/{{Radiohead}}'s "Creep" (sung by Belgian girls' choir Scala and Kolacny Brothers) to haunting effect; many viewers praised it as one of the most memorable movie trailers in years, and several critics credited it with managing to get audiences interested in a movie about the founding of Website/{{Facebook}}--which could easily have been an AudienceAlienatingPremise otherwise. In later years, several other films and TV shows have tried to borrow that technique for trailers, resulting in multiple other trailers also using haunting, minimalistic covers of pop songs, often sung by female vocalists. Examples include the trailers for ''Film/XMenApocalypse'' (which uses a cover of Music/{{Coldplay}}'s "Don't Panic"), Season 1 of ''Series/{{Gotham}}'' (which uses a cover of Music/TearsForFears' "Shout"), ''Film/PowerRangers2017'' (which uses a cover of Music/JohnnyCash's "Walk the Line"), and ''Film/GhostInTheShell2017''

** The note Mark gets passed in class the morning after the Facemash incident, which reads "U dick," was supposed to be something more vulgar (presumably "cocksucker"), but would have cost the movie it's PG-13 rating.
