A million dollar idea to improve your Queue

22 Sep

Life is short and your queue is long. http://feedfliks.com/size-of-queue tells us that almost half of you have over a 100 titles in your Queue. That’s too many to keep track of in your head and, chances are, that title in position 235 is never going to be watched. Which is ok except that Netflix might think that you’ll like Movie # 235 more than all the hundreds of movies ahead of it. Netflix recently gave away $1 Million to improve their  movie recommendation algorithm so it’s likely Netflix has a pretty good guess as to how much you’d like a particular movie.

Wouldn’t it be cool to run your big Queue by Netflix and ask if there are any gems lurking far, far below in your Queue? You can now do that with FeedFliks. Just head to your account page and look for the ‘Analyze your Queue’ section (it’s near the bottom) and hit the ‘Yes, do it’ link and you’re done! (If you haven’t signed up for FeedFliks yet, you should!)

Here’s a before and after of what it looks like:

Let’s put that million dollars to work!

    I think this is a greaaaat idea, but I can’t find it on my page…can someone help me? Or point me in the right direction? Maybe this feature should be more visible. I used it once before but now can’t find it.
