We have some exciting new updates in the land of SideReel Social. Much like some of your other favorite services (think Spotify or Hulu), we’ve launched Frictionless Sharing for our Facebook & Twitter Connected users.
What does this mean? This means that IF you are a Facebook and/or Twitter connected user, you now have the ability to automatically share when you track a show or mark an episode as watched on SideReel or SideReel mobile apps.
Not feeling social? Don’t worry! You can control within your sharing preferences how much or how little you share. For both Tracking shows and Marking episodes as watched, you can opt to either 1) Share Automatically to Facebook and/or Twitter or 2) Receive a prompt each time or 3) Never share anything.
We at SideReel are super enthusiastic about television and are excited to share with our Friends what we’re tracking and watching. It’s an opportunity to see who shares your tastes and strike up a conversation with them! We hope you’ll do the same, but also understand that some users are more private. This is why we’ve offered all three options for the way in which you share the actions you take on SideReel. Furthermore, nothing will be shared on your behalf without your knowledge and consent. The first time you Track a show or Mark an episode as watched, you will be informed that these actions will be shared moving forward, unless you edit your Preferences, which you can do at any time.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
