FeedFlix parses data out of Netflix RSS feeds and turns Netflix into a rudimentary social network. Though, it's not really very social yet. Every Netflix user has an RSS feed that includes information about the movies in your queue, the movies you have out, and which you've reviewed or recommended. Feedflix parses those feeds and tracks your account activity to create some helpful data that can be used to get the most out of Netflix.A new service called
Probably the most helpful piece of data Feedflix gives you, is how long you keep your rentals on average before sending them back to Netflix. The data is presented in an easy to grasp pie chart and could certainly help people determine if they are getting the most out of their Netflix plan. Incidentally, Feedflix also keeps charts on their community as a whole -- so they have data based on a small sample of which are the most popular Netflix plans, how long people keep movies, etc.
What Feedflix also does is create a public profile page for every user (example) and can suggest other Netflix users who are waiting for the same type of movies as you. That adds something of a social element to the service, although they haven't yet built any real social interaction features around it. That would be smart though. FeedFlix could theoretically build out a Flixter-like movie social network around Netflix.
