Storyline

As the mastermind and creator of the online social networking phenomenon SpringFace, Lisa is called to trial when Springfield's obsession with the site becomes chaotic and dysfunctional. Lisa recounts her story and explains that she created the site after realizing she had no real friends. But as SpringFace expands and Springfield's fixation with the site causes mass hysteria, Lisa begins to realize that adding thousands of friends online did not compare to having real friendships. Later, Patty and Selma compete against the Winklevoss Twins in the rowing event at the 2012 Olympic Games. Written by Fox Publicity

Great episode With A Good Take On The Social Network,
8 August 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The D'Oh-Cial Network is a fantastic Simpsons episode with a good storyline,some very funny scenes and also a good guest role from Armie Hammer.The episode had a good take on The Social Network with Lisa as Mark Wahlburg.The ending of the episode was very random,where it shows Patty and Sel;ma at the London 2012 Olympics,and then a 'episodes too short story',they where very random and had nothing to do with the storyline.

Lisa is taken to court,she tells the court the story of how she got here.After a trip with her family,Lisa realizes she doesn't have any friends when she meets Sherri and Terri and they ignore her.She tries to make more friends but doesn't work out,so she comes up with the idea of making friends over the internet,which she calls SpringFace,which everyone around Springfield starts to constantly use.
