Netflix Gets Social

Netlfix announced this week that it is linking up with Facebook to allow users to tag and rate its content and share it with friends. This allows Facebook users to share their own catalog of favorite movies like they do with just about everything else on the social network, from photos to the plethora of annoying “25 Things About Me” quizzes.
