Facebook-Netflix Integration

BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING: While you were busy checking text messages, your Facebook page just added 25 million Netflix subscribers, who will soon share their movie and TV show activity, thanks to a law signed today by President Barack Obama. The amended version of the Video Privacy Protection Act, originally created in 1988 to prevent businesses from sharing your physical rental history, now allows just that, provided their customers consent to it. The passage means that Netflix can now integrate their subscribers’ accounts with Facebook’s Timeline, letting  friends and family see what you’re watching in real time. The Senate passed the bill last month after two years of lobbying by Netflix. Now all your relatives know you’re streaming Raiders of the Lost Arse. (1/11p)
