Netflix finally comes to Facebook for US customers, see what your friends are viewing

Facebook finally gets Netflix integration, shows what content your friends are watching

By Charles Gantt from Mar 13, 2013 @ 13:30 CDT

Last year I reported on a bill passing congress that would allow Netflix to integrate with Facebook to share your watch history with your friends. Three months later, Netflix has finally implemented some functionality with the social network.

Today Netflix rolled out new features that will allow you to share your activity on your Facebook wall. After enabling the feature, two new rows will appear in your Netflix app that allows you to share your activity with your friends. Users will have the ability to post shows and films to Facebook and offer comments about recently viewed items.

This functionality has been available to the international crowd for well over a year now, but was held up in the US by obscure laws dating back to the VHS rental days that prevented renters from disclosing an individual's rental records. Netflix and Facebook teamed up to get the law amended - things were made official this past January.
