This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Eduardo is at a party trying to gain access to the Phoenix club. He remembers an earlier party where Mark Zuckerberg attended but couldn't talk to anyone. Mark is obsessed with getting into the Phoenix club. He talks with Erica about it. We never see him at any party trying to punch in.
   Mark writes in his blog about a girl he calls X. She has rejected him. He calls her a bitch and says he needs to get his mind off of her. Mark uses Erica's full name in his blog. We see Erica dump Mark in the beginning of the film. He goes much further than calling her a bitch. He says that her breasts are smaller than he thought because of help from a push up bra.
   Eduardo meets Mark at the Jewish fraternity house they are both part of. This isn't mentioned. Mark and Eduardo are already friends.
   Mark relishes coming up with the algorithm to compare the girls to each other for facemash.com Eduardo returns after reading that Mark has been dumped on his blog. Mark asks him for the algorithm he used for his chess ranking program. He uses it for facemash.com
   After Mark finishes facemash.com he emails it to a few friends to get their impression. He has no intention of it going viral. Mark and his roommates intend to send it out to everyone so they can all see it.
