SNL: The real Zuckerberg yucks it up with the actor who played him

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was on Saturday Night Live last night with guest host Jesse Eisenberg, the actor who played Zuckerberg in the acclaimed movie "The Social Network" and it was all hugs. Zuck came on the show to show he has a good sense of humour despite the unflattering portrayal of him in the movie that has won Eisenberg an Oscar nomination. Zuckerberg even appeared onstage with both Eisenberg and his own SNL impersonator Andy Samberg.

No wonder Zuckerberg is up for a good laugh. Facebook’s stock price has gone up seven-fold over the last year on the secondary exchange SharesPost. Facebook is now allegedly worth over $80 billion on the back of new ads like this that turn your Facebook check-ins into money. Pretty funny, eh?
