Netflix Gives Users Added Control Over Facebook Sharing

Netflix Inc., the world’s largest subscription streaming service, is adding a privacy feature that lets customers control which shows they share with their Facebook friends.

Netflix users will be prompted to recommend programs they’ve watched to one or more friends by linking their account to their page on Facebook, the world’s biggest social network, according to a blog post today. Their most frequent Facebook contacts will appear at the top of the list on their Netflix page. Previously, Netflix subscribers who linked to Facebook would share every TV show or movie to all their friends who were customers of both services.
