Netflix has picked up exclusive streaming rights for the third season of the Fox TV mystery series "The Killing" after three months, which is a much shorter window than usual.  And on Tuesday, the streaming service announced a new integration with Facebook that will make it even easier for people to find the Netflix content they want. It will allow Netflix to connect its U.S. subscribers to their Facebook friends to see what they’re watching. This is on top of the recommendation algorithms and all the big data that allowed Netflix to figure out that betting on a David Fincher/Kevin Spacey remake of favorite BBC series "House of Cards" would work. It did, even if the company spent no less than $3.8 million per episode--that was the least expensive hour in the 13 episode series. But it's their most-watched series to date. Netflix isn't stopping in its hunt for content. »
