Right now, the Miramax eXperience app offers 20 titles for rent at $3 each. (You can also use 30 Facebook credits for a rental.) That means Facebook users now have access to films from Miramax, along with Warner Brothers, Universal and Paramount. All are viewable via PC, iPad, or Google TV. Miramax says more titles are on the way and that the long-term goal is to let Facebook users buy films and store them via cloud for streaming access anywhere, anytime.
All that Glitters at Gilt
Also available to friends of Facebook: a new shopping experience. Flash sales site Gilt Groupe has a new e-commerce feature on its Facebook page, allowing fans easy (and sometimes exclusive) access to its merchandise. Each flash sales starts at 12pm ET on Mondays, and those who find something they cant live without, can make a purchase directly through Facebook using their Gilt sign-on information when its time to check out.
Also new from Gilt is a non-flash sale site called Park & Bond. Breaking away from its discounted style, Gilts Park & Bond sells full-priced mens clothing from the likes of Alexander McQueen and Thomas Pink. Theres also a feature that lets GQ readers purchase featured looks instantly via the P&B GQ online store.
Forkly, Knife, and Spoon
iPhone users with a knack for finding incredible new eateries will want to check out a new app called Forkly.
Forkly helps foodies find new restaurants and featured dishes according to personal tastes, then share their favorites with friends. After youve paid the new venue a visit, theres also a rating feature where you can post your taste notes and share them via Twitter and Facebook. And wannabe-food-critics will be happy to note that sharing the goods will earn you influence points& and enough recommendations will earn you influencer status for places and menu items.
