One new article link has been added to our Related News page. CNN Money published an article titled New video law lets you share your Netflix viewing on Facebook.
Netflix is now free to create a U.S. Facebook app that shares users’ viewing history if they opt in, after the company successfully lobbied Congress to amend a 1988 law.
A Netflix spokesman said the company “will launch social features in the U.S.” sometime in 2013. The law in question, called the Video Privacy Protection Act (VPPA), previously prohibited “a video tape service provider” from revealing customer information without the customer’s written consent.
