Anticipation is rising for the October 1 debut of The Social Network, the film that explores the history of Facebook and how it was founded. With just two weeks left before its debut in theaters, the film is launching its interactive trailer, chock-full of Facebook-y goodness.

The new trailer, which debuted earlier today on MySpace (ironic, no?), is a replay of the original trailer, but this version is clickable. Unlike other interactive trailers (such as the one for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) that simply give you facts about the making of the moving, the trailer for The Social Network will show you a stream of facts, videos and stats about Facebook and its founding.

While many of the tidbits the new i-trailer presents will not surprise the socially-savvy Mashable readership, there were a few gems that even we didn’t know until now. Here are some Facebook facts from the interactive trailer:

- “The average age of a Facebook employee is 31. Currently, Facebook has over 900 employees, including Jesse Eisenberg’s cousin.”

- “Sean Parker isn’t the only one who wanted a piece of Facebook.”

- “The average Facebook user loses 23.333 hours a month on Facebook. What else could you be doing with that time?”

Are you excited for the film? Do you think it can live up to expectations? Let us know in the comments.

We caught up with our favorites to see what they’ve been up to. Is that you, Christine? Gosh, you haven’t aged a bit!
