It could be JINNI.
Here are some details:

Jinni Community: Jinni just got social! You'll be automatically connected to 
anyone you invite (or who invited you) to Jinni. Check your neighbors, 
follow interesting movie lovers, and see who's following you.

Movie Personality: We're continuing to develop intelligent features for 
personalized movie discovery. Check your Movie Personality Sketch for a 
visual presentation of your taste (on the right-hand side of your 
recommendations page). The Match-o-mat on any user's public profile 
describes your taste compatibility.

Share: We're rolling out the first set of features to share your actions and 
opinions from Jinni around the web. Check for options to share searches and 
interesting pages on Facebook, Twitter, and others - and stay tuned for more 
share and RSS features, coming soon.

Profile: Don't forget to update your profile with a photo and "About you" 
sentence for other Jinni users to see!

Feedback is always a top priority for us, so feel free to let us know what 
you think! We're continuing to work on new features to make Jinni your best 
starting point for choosing movies and TV shows to watch.
