Bring the Hate

Published by at 8:27 am under Entertainment,Tech

Netflix posted this morning basically saying “We tried to give you Facebook integration to share stuff but it’s not being used, WTF? We are gonna take our ball and try again.” I’m paraphrasing, of course.

Then comes the hate. There were about 20 comments that came in the first hour and only 1 of them was like “Hey, I used this and it worked for me, why are you pulling it?” All the rest were of the “Facebook is shit and I’m not using it” or “I tried to use it but it’s a steaming pile of poo” variety. Again, paraphrasing, but you get the point.

Facebook is a really polarizing subject. How can something that so many people dislike get to be so popular?

As for netflix, I hope they do figure out something that doesn’t include facebook. I really think they should have facebook as an option though too. The reason why it’s so popular is because it’s has user base. You can’t ignore something like that. The mistake of offering just facebook is only trumped by the mistake of taking it away now.
