Popular social TV app GetGlue just got even more social with the launch of a new real-time conversation feature, Tumblr sharing and personalized widgets. The new GetGlue features were announced by Alex on the GetGlue blog and they’re giving GetGlue users the opportunity to connect with their friends and other fans like never before.
We’ll start with a look at the new GetGlue Conversation experience. Basically, when you check-in to GetGlue, the new Conversation feature connects you to other friends and fans that are checked into the same thing so you can have a conversation in real time. According to Alex of GetGlue, “The Conversation is smart. It shows all comments from your friends, but only interesting comments from other fans. The Conversation also shows you filtered Tweets, so you can stay on top of what is going on Twitter without leaving GetGlue.”
GetGlue’s Conversation is a huge improvement on an already great service. Now, GetGlue users can easily reply to friends, other fans and Tweets in one location, enjoying the conversation while checked-in to their favorite media, from TV shows to movies, music and more.
And that’s not all. GetGlue has also announced that you can now share your GetGlue check-ins and reviews directly to Tumblr. And Alex writes that, “The best part about the integration is how the check-ins appear on Tumblr – they are beautiful.” Check out the image below to see how a GetGlue check-in looks when shared to Tumblr and let us know what you think.
Finally, GetGlue has launched some new widgets that let you feature your check-ins and stickers on Tumblr, Blogger, WordPress or any blog or website. Personalized widgets, available from the settings page, automatically update to show your new activity. Check out the screenshots below.
What do you think of the new GetGlue features? Will you be checking out The Conversation, sharing your check-ins and reviews on Tumblr or posting a GetGlue widget on your site?
UPDATE October 27, 2011: Real-time conversation has now been added on the GetGlue Android and mobile app as well. Read more on the GetGlue blog.
