BBC Factual has announced a new documentary series on Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
Across three parts, Zuckerberg will tell the story of the unlikely maverick and his creation and assess the social media behemoth’s global impact on culture and behaviour.
The announcement comes as the 20th anniversary of Facebook approaches.
Nancy Strang, Creative Director of the producer, Mindhouse Productions, said: "The remarkable story of Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook is one of the tales of our time. He has arguably done more to transform human behaviour and connectivity than any other person this century.
“I'm thrilled that we've been given this opportunity to tell the extraordinary inside story of the social media giant, and the man behind it."
A teenage Mark Zuckerberg invented Facebook in 2004 as a lowly college website to help students connect with each other. Little did he know that it would go on to become the world’s largest social networking site and one of its most powerful companies, having radically and irreversibly transformed human behaviour and communication.
The documentary will draw from insider testimony, personal journals and rare archive footage to paint a definitive portrait of the man and his platform.
