Verizon's FiOS TV Users Can Tweet, Update Facebook with Social TV Widgets

Verizon is enhancing its recently launched Facebook and Twitter Widgets for its FiOS TV service with additional features that give subscribers even more ways to connect with others while watching TV. The enhancements include using the onscreen keyboard to send Tweets and the ability for subscribers to update their Facebook status with personalized messages.


Verizon said that inn just three weeks since it introduced the new Twitter and Facebook Widgets, millions of Tweets and Facebook gallery photos have been viewed by FiOS TV subscribers on their TV screens.


"FiOS TV subscribers are enthusiastically embracing our new social TV experiences and are asking for more," said Shawn Strickland, vice president, marketing for Verizon Telecom. "We're very quickly adding new features so that users can create and send more personalized information, in addition to viewing content. FiOS TV subscribers can count on us to continually expand their enjoyment of social networking on TV with innovative, interactive applications that cable can't deliver."


FiOS TV subscribers with Facebook accounts already can log in to Facebook through the FiOS TV Widget to view their own photos and view their friends' photos and status updates. These subscribers can now also use an onscreen keyboard to update their Facebook status with personalized messages so they can connect and share with their friends online.
