Flixter Collections Now in Beta

Posted by at 10:20 am on August 4, 2011

Warner Brothers​’ social movie portal Flixter Collections entered public beta yesterday. The free service integrates with Amazon, Apple iTunes, Hulu and Netflix accounts and can be used to launch each of those services. Flixter can be configured to share media from a local hard drive. The site also connects users with movies still in theaters, with links to movie reviews, trailers and online ticketing.

Flixter lets users display images of their media as movie posters in what it calls a “collection.” Collection images act as a status update to let friends on the site know what you’re watching and provides a like/dislike rating function.

How willing users will be to embrace yet another social media site remains to be seen, since its core social functions duplicate what is already available on Facebook and Twitter. Privacy advocates have also raised concerns about allowing the service access to users’ hard drives and viewing preferences.
