    $3.00 a movie. For a 48 hour time period. Not worth it.

    Guess what, watching movies is a social experience. For the movie studios it's a good and cheap method of trying to reach a 500+ Million install base.



    Haha, yeah. Sure all the $75 Billion valued companies will fizzle out in a few years.



    Just Block the app in your settings

    I have but they still seem to come thru

    It's like receiving spam from a site u never visited or shared your email address with. It's annoying and inconvenient
    Thank you! i've been trying to find the words to say that.

    Its very annoying since I do not have a working computer atm (cpu overheats after 10 minutes of use) and i use the facebook mobile site since the app is buggy. my notifications are off the roof and they're really annoying with stupid games. I shouldn't have to receive notifications from games i dont even have installed on my fb!!

    Facebook was made for a social site, not music and crap. It WILL turn into another myspace.

    And the artist feeds and stuff don't really bother me

    One word - "overkilled"

    People like to have options..

    Just because most all the people in the world has it they try take advantage of it..facebook is for social networking that's why it's called facebook..facebook needs to make moviebook

    Do you mean "mark my words"?

    I think Facebook is branching out way too quickly. They're beginning to offer everything but being excellent in nothing. They should really focus on improving the quality of their current offerings (like their horrid chat system) rather than spreading themselves out even more. I smell the curse of AOL...

    I think that if you were going to try and start a streaming s@service though facebook is a great place, I personally don't have a facebook, but everyone I know has one, and that's a great place to start, where's everyones at
    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!
