Rome - Jesse Eisenberg may play Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg on screen, but in real life the actor doesn't use the site.
In fact, Eisenberg says he's a bit challenged when it comes to technology despite having taken classes to prepare for the The Social Network, David Fincher's movie about Facebook.
Eisenberg told The Associated Press on Monday that "I like technology but it doesn't seem to feel the same way about me".
Speaking at the Rome Film Festival, where the movie was presented out of competition, Eisenberg said he never uses Facebook, though he did try it for two weeks while rehearsing in order "to understand what my character had built".
The Social Network opened last month in the US to strong reviews and topped the box office on opening weekend.
