The Social Network wins three Oscars and Aaron Sorkin has had a change of attitude to social networking

The Social Network, aka the Facebook Movie, had been nominated for eight Academy Awards including Best Picture and Actor in a Leading Role.

On the night it won three: Best Adapted Screenplay went to Aaron Sorkin, Angus Wall and Kirk Baxter took the Film Editing award and Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross won in the Music (Original Score) category.
