Follow other users and be notified of their ratings and other activities on IMDb

If we just can add our friends like facebook and share our movies and ratings together I think it would be more fun and useful :) And also we can compare our rating history and that would be very good for users :)

I'd like it if friends could search my lists with Advanced Title Search. That's be cool.

Yes, adding more social features to IMDB could help people find more films, which has to help IMDB's sister sites like Amazon and LoveFilm.

As witnessed by the recent addition of more user-specific improvements (profile pages, badges, voting compatibility/comparisons) we are definitely putting more emphasis on social features. I don't really know if a 'friends' feature is being planned at this point, but it's definitely one of many things being considered.

pretty please?

and if I can add a point, it'd also be great to link your Watchlist with a friend's when trying to pick what to watch, in order to see what movies you're both eager to watch and decide easier.

A user experience like BGG would make IMDb so much better. Instead I'm just thinking of what could be.

rottentomatoes does it quite efficientily (even if clearly the website structure is quite poor), comparing movie ratings with friends and make it easier to keep track of who's watched what and if he liked it would be an extremely popular feature

Is Rotten Tomatoes a better option if I want a more social website?

Hi, Dusty Bender. If you've read through this thread, you may have noticed that it partly hasn't aged well. Most of the replies and comments here were made before the IMDb·Com message boards software (which included a private messaging system among other features) was taken offline.

So, things have only gotten worse not better?

So to speak, but some small percentage of IMDb visitors never saw any value in the message boards, and indeed a lot of staff resources were committed to the boards when those resources could have been better placed elsewhere.

With Facebook one can "like" a page and see how many of his / her friends liked that page too. Also, one could make suggestions for other movies / pages that your friends "like" too. This is a great way to discover other movies in the same area of interest as your friends. Of course, in the IMDB website this feature would provide the same kind of functionality provided from the "People who liked this also liked..." "IMDB community" information block. But within Facebook it would add something usefull because it provides information within another social "Personal friends" context.

So +1 for this idea

Is it also time to "link and share" with Google+ and not only FB.

i agree with the views above,flixster has a feature called movie compatibility by which one can compare movie ratings with friends.that way we can know with whom we share similar tastes.if such a feature is introduced in imdb it wud be great.
