Netflix is being foolish.

Yes they are if they really just want to allow US to choose what WE want to share then they would just set it up the way hulu does allowing us to share when we favorite something or add it to our queue. It's not that hard. *ponders what Netflix really wants to do with our information*

Not only Hulu, but iMDb, as well. I have voluntarily set up iMDb so that whenever I rate a title, it automatically appears on Facebook. It's a feature I wanted, I use, I like, and, judging by the comments, my Facebook Friends like as well.

Netflix has always stated, if you don't want it, you can easily opt out.

This seems to be the closest thing Netflix will do to get their Netflix Friends system back. Seeing what my "Friends" have rated a movie was one of my favorite features of Netflix, even more so when it had the "Two Cent Mini-Reviews". You could click on a title and immediately see what your Friends rated a title, and if they left a review, you could see that, too.

I think the reason they won't share it without changing the laws was because blockbuster got sued for sharing information on facebook, even though you had to opt-in, because it violated the Video Privacy Protection Act of 1998 because they didn't obtain written permission to share their information.

It's an outdated law, plain and simple, and I look forward to when we can share what we watch on facebook, or not, if I so choose.
