Clicker Turns On Social TV
One of the most significant features of Clicker Social is the ability to “check-in” to TV shows that users are watching on the Web. In addition to check-ins, users can comment on and rate shows and movies as well as create multiple playlists of shows, videos and movies. All of these actions are aggregated within an activity feed on the user’s Clicker profile. And as a bonus, Clicker users can now earn awards from content partners [Revision3, HBO, and PBS] for sharing or interacting with their content. The more users share and interact with content on Clicker, the more status they will gain within the Clicker community. Clicker says that these ‘experts’ will be rewarded with the ability to guide the content and discussions on Clicker.
The launch of the startup’s iPhone and Android apps offer the same functionality, allowing users to search for programs to watch on their device, add shows to their playlist, manage their profile, check out their activity feed, check-in to shows and earn awards for things they’re watching offline, discuss shows with other Clicker users, and more.
