'Mark Zuckerberg: Inside Facebook' on ABC1

The profile on one of the most interesting, enigmatic people on the planet - Mark Zuckerberg - and the business he founded, Facebook, will screen on ABC1 this Thursday May 10 at 9.30pm.

Watch the preview on this fascinating doco:

According to the ABC site, here's what the program will be about:

"Mark Zuckerberg's journey from Harvard psychology and computer science student to being the founder of one of the most influential new businesses in the world in seven action-packed years is the stuff of legend.

Facebook has already acquired more than 800 million users. Half of them log on to the site every day to communicate with family, friends, acquaintances, celebrities, businesses and brands. Now Facebook looks set to turn itself into the next high tech money making machine.

Still only 27 years old, Zuckerberg has resolutely refused increasingly lucrative offers to buy the business - turning down a reported $15 billion from Microsoft, for instance.

With an exclusive interview with Zuckerberg himself and access to Facebook's offices in Silicon Valley and its most senior staff, this documentary tells the story of Mark Zuckerberg's extraordinary rise, and examines his new challenge in combining his idealistic vision of a more open world with the business potential that Facebook now represents."

Will you tune in? My recording device is set.
