Netflix unveils Facebook app

Posted: Updated:

Netflix users can finally connect with Facebook, that is, if you want to reveal what you're watching to all your Facebook friends.

The video streaming service launched its first Facebook app this week.

Users will be able to see which shows their Facebook friends have watched and which they have rated highly.

Nothing is automatically posted to Facebook. Users can choose not to share a particular show or movie.

Other countries have been able to do this for some time now, but it was prevented in the United States because of a 1988 federal law called the Video Privacy Protection Act. Congress just amended the video-sharing law this year.
