Could ‘Watched On’ Facebook News Feed Stories Save Netflix? You’ll be the one to decide.

29 Dec


Spotify added MILLIONS of new users by partnering with Facebook and sharing which songs Facebook users were listening to. Additionally, partnering with Facebook even helped Spotify gain over 1.5 millon new premium, paying subscribers!

So why can’t Netflix do the same?

After a disastrous Q3 2011, Netflix stands to replace some of the 800,000 subscribers it lost. It’s savior? The Facebook news feed. Earlier this month, the House of Representatives passed a revised bill to change the Video Privacy Protection Act of 1988 to allow people to opt in to having their movie rental activity shared. This Act had delayed the Netflix Facebook app‘s launch in the US. Now the Facebook news feed is beginning to show “Josh Constine watched The Walking Dead on Netflix” stories that point back to the Netflix site. After being enticed by something a friend has watched, Facebook users might sign up and pay on Netflix.com so they can watch too.

Sam Lessin Pitches The Facebook Timeline | TechCrunch.

Because Facebook Timeline is rolling out to the public in the coming weeks, Facebook brought in press last week to do a “deep dive” on this new visual way of organizing our online social lives.

We went through every possible question I had about Timeline, except for maybe, “Why doesn’t Facebook think people will be hesitant to express negative events, like the death of a family member, on Facebook Timeline?.”

Don’t forget, you can get Facebook timeline before everyone else by switching to developer mode. Takes 5 minutes or less. Go here to learn how: http://www.techspot.com/guides/444-get-facebook-timeline/
