Update to Privacy Policy

We just rolled out a couple of changes to the Privacy Policy that affect all users. So please take a minute to read this.

The first change involves the display of your Real Name vs your Netflix Nickname on your FeedFliks pages. For a while now, all new users by default only have their Netflix Nicknames shown but this can be overridden on the FeedFliks Account page. We’ve made this change retroactive – that is, all users on FeedFliks now have only their Netflix Nickname displayed irrespective of when they joined the site. If you are a user who prefers your Real Name to show up, please explicitly set this preference on your Account page.

The second change involves what is shared on your FeedFliks page. Again, for a while now, all new users by default only have their Netflix Reviews shared. All other data, their Queues, their Recommendations etc are private. Users’ Rental and Streaming Histories have *always* been private – as have been their statistics, graphs and calculations. We’ve made this change also retroactive – that is, all users on FeedFliks now only have their Reviews shared (unless they’ve made that section also private already). If you are a user who prefers to share more, please set your sharing preferences explicitly on your Sharing page.

Our privacy policy is at http://feedfliks.com/privacy

More questions  are always welcome. Just contact us and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

A change of name: FeedFlix is now FeedFliks

FeedFliks Logo

We’ve changed our name to FeedFliks.  More about this is here: http://feedfliks.com/name-change

You might need to login once more but everything else should stay the same – in fact get better and better.  If you have any questions at all, drop us a note or leave a comment here.

Shakespeare wrote, in Romeo and Juliet:

What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;

We’re hoping Juliet and Shakespeare were right 🙂

Manage your Netflix Queue directly from FeedFlix

feedflix-manage-queue Hi everyone – we wanted to announce a feature that we put into production earlier this week and something that several users have used already: managing your NF queue without leaving FeedFlix.

On every movie detail page you’ll see an option to Add to your DVD Queue. If it’s already in your Queue, you can choose to move it to the top or to delete it. And, if the title is available via Streaming/IW, you’ll be given the option to add it to your Instant Queue.

Just hit the ‘Add’ button and we’ll both add the title to your Queue and refresh your FeedFlix page with the change. No need to go to the Netflix page to add or delete titles in your queue any more.

Do hit us up in the comments with any comments or feedback on this feature.
