The Future Of Social TV Is Now

From over at Read Write Web, an interesting social “check-in” site which allows you to “check-in” for TV shows, music and books.

GetGlue is a service that lets users “check-in” to watching TV shows, reading books and listening to music. In 2011, it added a visual stream, real-time convos and personalized guides to shows, movies and artists. The conversation tab brings up chats that users are having in real-time about the same show, movie or artist. It’s a natural opportunity for the “water cooler”-type conversation.

The site is only two years old, yet it has grown 1000% year over year. The million user mark came in April 2011. From just January to September 2011,it saw an 800% increase.

GetGlue users openly share their feelings about entertainment, especially when it comes to popular shows and movies. Social TV is centered around emotional experiences, and GetGlue users love to talk about feelings.
