On February 4, 2004, Mark Zuckerberg founded Facebook. The company marks the beginning of an age of consumer data collection and society’s growing dependence on connecting to itself through a small group of companies like Facebook. The Silicon Valley goal to integrate itself deeply into the lives of the population is pushed in exploratory ways in The Circle. Dave Eggers creates a protagonist, Mae, who embodies the ambition and idealism that acts as the real Silicon Valley’s idealism. As the story develops, The Circle becomes a thrilling suspense over privacy, knowledge, and rights.
