Spring is in the air (or at least it should be) and while the urge to clean and organize the house may be strong, you might be like me… I throw on the TV, find something to watch on Netflix and then get down to business. This plan is flawed though because sometimes it takes a lot of searching before I can find the right program, and sometimes my options are 75% kid shows, 5 % what hubby has been watching and then a few titles that Netflix thinks I might like.
Thankfully, this is a problem of the past because Netflix has recently added a new feature that allows you to “Spring Clean” your profile; this feature is referred to as the Thumb Rating System. A thumbs up means you’ll receive more recommendations similar to what you like; a thumbs down will keep that show or movie off your lists.
Here’s how the new thumbs design may come in handy for your family:
- Your kids spent a rainy afternoon watching Buddy Thunderstruck and now all your recommendations are cartoons- a simple thumbs down ensures the cartoons stay on their profile and off yours.
- Your partner has been on a Marvel’s Iron Fist binge and now your Netflix profile is unrecognizable- setting up their own profiles + thumb ratings will make sure everyone’s Netflix experience is personalized and stays that way!
- You just discovered Santa Clarita Diet and want more shows similar to it- a thumbs up will ensure you’re recommended similar titles.
Just remember to create a separate profile for your spouse, kids, and babysitter so that each one of you can personalize your selection and save the search time, for watching what you want!
