Does TV need real time social networking?

Judging from many of the postings on facebook around sports playoffs and season finale’s the answer would seem to be an obvious “yes”. However, in practice the answer is less clear.

Consumers have long had the ability to network in real time via phone, and they could do it on facebook or IM in real time if they choose. For the most part that just doesn’t happen.

In a world of 140 character updates and uber-connectivity perhaps our friends don’t want to hear about entertainment until the entire event can be completely summarized in one short burst. Or perhaps entertainment is not about bringing your virtual friends for the entire show, and entertainment is best enjoyed when you are fully in the moment. It seems “No talking in the theater” may be better rule than we knew.
