The company, created by four former Digg employees last year, harnesses Twitter-based chatter about movies, and it shows users what their friends say about movies. The site also analyzes the Twitter buzz and assigns a score a la Rotten Tomatoes. For instance, the site assigned a rating of 81% to the movie The Green Hornetbased on 66,307 tweets.

In a blog post on December 30, fflick said it had 10 million users.


Facebook is launching a new ad format called "Sponsored Stories," which allows participating advertisers to promote your Facebook activity by turning it into homepage ads seen only by your friends. This activity can include "liking" a Facebook page, checking in via Facebook Places or sharing content to the News Feed from a Facebook application.



AmazonTote is a program that delivers items to your home at a scheduled time each week, free of charge. The items, which include any good weighing 50 pounds or less that Amazon sells and ships, are left in "a sealed, weather-resistant tote bag up to twice a week," according to Amazon.
