actual musical differences revealed!
Its first appearance was as the No Piano version on ''The Social Network's'' official website as background music in the form of a streaming MP3 at 256kbps. Later, the site was updated to play the original Hand Covers Bruise.
The A shortened version of the piece is titled "Main Title Sequence" and "What Were the Shares Diluted Down To?" on the Sony Pictures website for Academy Award consideration, while a shortened version of its reprise at the same source is titled "What Are We Doing About This?". At the same source, "What Were the Shares Diluted Down To?" is a slightly different take of the former, its piano sounding softer and more distant, and with a much shorter darker bass drone section.
==Song Credits==
===Hand Covers Bruise===
This is the original version. Beginning quietly with a mid-pitched drone that twinkles across the stereo field, a sustained piano melody plays over top. A second layer soon joins in, this one shimmering much like one of the layers at the beginning of "[[Just Like You Imagined]]." As higher-pitched drones fade in and out, synthesized bass hits enter intermittently. The piano melody returns again on top. Once the bass hits and piano stop, the drones hit a disharmonic apex, petering out to silence."Main Title Sequence" is a shorter edit of this version, fading out quickly after the second round of bass hits; "What Were the Shares Diluted Down To?" is a slightly different take on the track, with a softer, much more distant version of the piano melody, and a fade out after one round of bass hits. 
===Hand Covers Bruise, Reprise===
This is a reprise of the original.Much shorter in length, it contains only one pass of the initial piano motif, and one pass of the bass drone section, which features much louder, more disturbing synth whines. "What Are We Doing About This?" is the same track, but without the extra, louder layers of synth whine. 
===Hand Covers Bruise (No Piano)===
This version is the same as the original, but lacks the piano melodies.
