Netflix Gets Connected On Facebook

Posted Mar 25, 2009

Netflix Inc. is another company that has joined in on the Facebook Connect bandwagon.  Netflix linked their ratings system to the social network so that when a user rates a movie on the video rental service website, it gets linked to their profile.

This move is slight competition to LivingSocial.  LivingSocial is a Facebook application system where users can vote on music albums, beer, books, iPhone applications, movies, restaurants, ski slopes, TV shows, and video games.

Netflix has over 10 million subscribers.  Netflix is hoping to leverage that user base to connect with Facebook’s 175 million users.  ?Movies make for great conversations,? stated Netflix VP of Product Management Gibson Biddle.
