"Your TV Show" Via Your Facebook Newsfeed

Social Studios was founded by TV and Internet executives who have worked at companies including Google/YouTube and Yahoo!. Realizing that social media platforms have yet to deliver a TV experience viewers want to watch, they saw an opportunity to produce engaging, personalized TV shows from social media news feeds. Social Studio's first show, a Facebook app called Your Show, quickly identifies posts from your close friends and favorite brand pages and automatically turns them into a show starring you and your friends. The first of its kind, the fun daily TV show is presented by Noa Tishby, well-known actress and Hollywood producer. To-date, Social Studios has raised $700,000 in angel funding. [nasdaq.com...]

From within the article; "Join our public beta by using Google Chrome..." (gee who do you suppose they got their seed money from)?

This article caught my eye this morning. I typically avoid as much of the facebook related hype as possible but I was compelled to read this one in its entirety with a goal of trying to understand whatever new concept is being pushed here. This one literally leaves me speechless. I admit I don't understand what a news feed is but somehow what I've read here just feels like it's sinking to a whole new level that is beyond absurd.

If anyone with a more solid understanding of what a facebook news feed is I would appreciate you explaining it to me so I can fully understand what this is all about.

Who will this be accessible to? Can anyone with a facebook account watch the "reality shows" of strangers?

Reading this trash has just brought me another step closer to "cube unplugged" to venture back into the wilderness with my canoe. I think this western society that I am immersed in is now officially morally bankrupt. Or, am I overreacting due to not fully understanding the concept of what a facebook news feed is?

For those of you who swear by facebook rather than swear at it here is your opportunity to educate me in why I should adopt it with open arms. You have my full attention.
