Here's why Facebook's predecessor, Facemash plays an essential role in Mark Zuckerberg's life
'Without Facemash I wouldn’t have met Priscilla, and she’s the most important person in my life.'
“...that movie [The Social Network)] made it seem like Facemash was so important to creating Facebook. It wasn’t. But without Facemash I wouldn’t have met Priscilla, and she’s the most important person in my life, so you could say it was the most important thing I built in my time here,” he said, sharing more on the role played by Facemash in bringing the two together.

Priscilla and he met while standing in the queue for the bathroom. “In what must be one of the all time romantic lines, I said: ‘I’m going to get kicked out in three days, so we need to go on a date quickly,’” he said. That is how Zuckerberg met his future wife.
