Netflix Now Lets You Recommend Movies to Friends via Facebook

Netflix

Netflix on Tuesday launched a new social recommendation feature to let its users suggest TV shows to their Facebook friends. It is available starting Tuesday on the Netflix website, iOS, PS3, Xbox, and many set-top boxes and smart TVs, though the company says it will be adding additional platforms “in the coming months.” It’s worth emphasizing that the feature is only available when you finish watching an episode (and Netflix specifically says “shows” multiple times, but not movies). This should, in theory, reduce the chance of being spammed with recommendations by your friends.

Then you can pick which friends to share with, add an optional message, and hit Send.
