Here are details on the new tools that went live today.

Here’s a run down of the new social features that Jeremy Toeman and has team have built.

  • The newest social feature includes an activity pane which lets you see when your friends (or anybody) watch or favorite shows
  • Also, “find friends” now supports email, Facebook, or searching by name.
  • In addition to a ‘quote’ watchlist, when you bookmark something in NextGuide, it’s used (along with several other factors) to help influence your recommendations.
  • Easily discover when Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, iTunes, and Netflix add new TV shows and movies to their libraries
  • Overhauled category & interest preferences interface with simple tap and drag UI
  • Big Search improvements, including search by Director
