Better control of your real time social network updates

  • Announcement
  • Updated 4 years ago
Just pushed a nice update to the real time social network updates. Previously you could only enable or disable this and it would send out a status/tweet/post when you started watching anything.

This updates gives you more control to choose when you update goes out (either when you start watching or when you finish) plus you can send updates for only TV shows or only movies if you want to.

Your old setting is carried over so if you had it disabled it will still be disabled. If you had it enabled, you will have the watching checked as well as TV Shows and Movies checked.

Head over to your connection settings to use these new options!



Pro Tip: If you don't want to spam your timeline (recommended) choosing only movies and on completion is a good setting.

Especially the "Share when I finish" is very welcome! I have had to go in and manually delete tweets when I accidentally started the wrong movie or simply changed my mind.

The pro tip is good, but it would be a good idea to still enable people to share their viewing habits of TV shows even if they don't tweet every single episode. Please consider something like what tweekly.fm does for last.fm users, except native to trakt: an option to automatically tweet top TV-shows (# of episodes in paranthesis) watched every week.

They still don't have an API to post updates that I know of.
