On Facebook, I usually know what someone had for lunch that day. Some people just like to indulge everyone else in their every move, so Netflix is catering to that.

Netflix already offers a Facebook app that allows people to share what they just watched, so I expect whatever the company will unveil will go much deeper than that, possibly becoming a Facebook of sorts for the service. There’s already quite a bit of social services there already (commenting on videos, for example), so I’m still interested to see what’s in store.

For me, nothing will change. It might help I almost never watch movies though ;-)

Netflix! Seriously, this is a dumb idea to me Rob. If any one wants to talk about movies they are plenty of convenient spots do this. I see this as a way to set default privacy information to public and allow advertisers to target ads directly to each person, how fun is that?!? Who gains from this you ask? Well, Netflix, this would be a win for them in revenue, especially since they have had so many issues maintaining profits for the past several years.
