Another way to get rich off Facebook: Mark Zuckerberg's former assistant writes memoir

The founder of Facebook might “like” this: Katherine Losse, Facebook’s 51st employee, has written a memoir about her five-year stint at the social network. The book — titled The Boy Kings: A Journey Into the Heart of the Social Network — will be released June 26 by The Free Press, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.

According to a release, Losse’s book will describe “the vision, culture, and tactics of the hackers, venture capitalists, and Ivy League grads” who took Facebook from campus curiosity to worldwide phenomenon. It will also “ignite broad cultural conversations about technology, gender, race, and the future of the Internet.” But will it involve time travel? Because that’s really what we look for in a Facebook book.

Losse served as a writer and researcher at the website — as well as Zuckerberg’s assistant — from 2005 to 2010, leaving on “friendly terms.” She’s currently living and writing in Marfa, Tx.
