Do you use social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter? If yes, you are lucky to become a part of a technology which will make it easier for you to stay socially connected on these sites right from the screen of your TV. In short, TV is expected to go more real than what it is today.
The shared social experience is possible by connecting TV to the internet. Connecting TV to the internet would mean that you will be able to watch your favourite baseball match and tweet about it without switching devices or screens. A perfect example of shared social experience is Facebook Live that allows Facebook users to stay connected with their Facebook followers with their devices. Facebook is planning to come up with a TV app called Facebook TV. The app is expected to be available with set-top boxes.
