Netflix understands that sometimes mass sharing makes for less sharing. Earlier this week, the company changed their features to allow subscribers that link their accounts to Facebook more control over who can see their viewing history. The company hopes this new, selective recommendation process will enhance the sharing process as well as the movie viewing experience, with more compelling, personal ways for users to find something to watch.
Netflix figured out that not everyone wants to share all of their viewing habits with their entire social network, just as Facebook users don’t want to hear about every video watched by their “friends”. What other products or brands would consumers want to selectively share and recommend? What media works best for the selective sharing? #MarsTalk
