Netflix Adds Separate User Profiles to Fix Mixed Suggestions

Netflix Adds Separate User Profiles to Fix Shared Suggestions(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Popular video streaming service Netflix on Thursday announced the addition of multiple user profiles (up to 5), fixing a longstanding problem that mixed shared user suggestions to one Netflix homepage.

“Each person will get personalized suggestions based on what they watch and rate, as well as separate Recently Watched and Instant Queue lists. You can also connect each person to a different Facebook account, to get personalized suggestions from your friends,” explained the company via the Netflix blog.

Netflix noted the new profiles feature will begin rolling out in the coming days, hitting Netflix-capable devices like the iPhone, iPad, PS3, Xbox 360, Apple TV and more.
