“We’ve sought Rovi as a valuable source for TV and movie information to help provide the backdrop that we need to enable developers to create a connected experience for consumers in their apps and services.”
- Ime Archibong, Platform Partnerships, Facebook.
Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected. People use Facebook to stay connected with friends and family, to discover what’s going on in the world, and to share and express what matters to them.
Facebook is using Rovi Video, a database that includes in-depth information on movies, TV shows and celebrities, to offer people more ways to express the things they love on their profiles. The integration of Rovi Video with Facebook Platform will also offer app developers a high-quality, standardized base of entertainment data for creating meaningful consumer apps and interaction with entertainment-related content.
