Facebook Enters Movie Rental Business

Facebook is following in Netflix and Amazon’s footsteps and getting into the movie rental business. Through a partnership with Warner Brothers, Facebook users can now rent movies directly through the social network.

GalleyCat has more: “Users can access the content straight through the movie’s Facebook page–could this model work for eBooks as well? The program launched with Batman: The Dark Knight–follow this Facebook link to rent.”

In exchange for earned credits, users can stream films on Facebook. Users also have to allow the app access to their account to participate, which Warner Brothers will likely use for its marketing purposes.
