SAN FRANCISCO -- Netflix is giving its Internet video subscribers a more discreet way to recommend movies and TV shows to their Facebook friends after realizing most people don't want to share their viewing habits with large audiences.
Until now, Netflix subscribers linking the service to their Facebook accounts automatically disclosed everything they were watching with a potentially wide-reaching range of people. The automatic disclosures will end as Netflix Inc. embraces a new system that empowers subscribers to select which friends will receive their video recommendations.
