Today’s poll was inspired by the Prescreen contest we ran last week. Prescreen links a user’s movie-streaming account to his or her Facebook account, in order to make their movie watching habits more of a social networking experience, much as Spotify does for music. I’ve noticed that Netflix and VUDU also have similar features. Do you use them? Do you update Facebook or Twitter when you watch a movie?
I’m not much of a social networker, personally. I only accept Facebook requests from people I know, and I rarely bother to update my status. I draw a line at Twitter at won’t use it at all. I feel like, between this blog, my other writings, and the various forums that I participate in, my life is public enough. If you want to know what I’m thinking, you shouldn’t have trouble finding me without Facebook.
Needless to say, I’ve never felt the need to link any movie service to my Facebook account. How about you? Do you update your status when you watch a movie?
