Facebook's recent deal with Warner Bros. to stream feature films through the social media giant's platform, promises to be an interactive movie experience. You pay three bucks (equal to 30 Facebook credits -- you know, like Monopoly money), and you get 48 hours to watch the film. So far, you only have 'The Dark Knight' to choose from, but this gives Warner Bros. the potential to dish up their entire library.

As famous film critic Roger Ebert also outlines in his Sun-Times blog, the entry of Facebook into the live-streaming pantheon gives people who might never use the technology an opportunity to check it out. We're talking about folks like grandma, who might actually enjoy cheering Batman on, but was afraid to give her credit card to a website other than the one feeding her nasty Farmville addiction.
