Connecting with your friends on Netflix

Hi, Tom Willerer here, Director of Product Management. I'm part of a dedicated team at Netflix exploring new ways for members to connect with their friends to find interesting TV shows and movies to watch.

Two years ago we launched a program for Netflix members to share their ratings on Facebook. Very few of you have signed on for this so we’re pulling it back today to regroup, which includes testing new concepts, and ultimately finding a more appealing program for all of our members. The testing will start with getting our members connected to Facebook and in the coming months we'll add new ways for our members to find interesting TV shows and movies to watch based on friends' recommendations.

Stay tuned and thanks for your support.
