Now when you log into Netflix to make it a movie night, you'll see recommendations from friends.
The video streaming service announced Facebook integration Wednesday, enabling subscribers to see what their friends have been watching. As Mashable explains, you'll notice two new rows on the homepage and app, one showcasing "Friends' Favorites," or content that received a high rating, and another called "Watched by Your Friends." You can sync your Facebook and Netflix accounts to see who's watched what specifically.
The Facebook integration has been a long time coming, says Mashable. Previously, the decades-old Video Protection Privacy Act (VPPA), which prohibits sharing video rental history without consent, had blocked the feature, but in December Congress passed a bill to finally accommodate it.
