Social TV Check-In Applications

Allowing viewers to "check-in" to TV shows seems to be a new trend in creating viewer interaction with programming, and giving analysts new numbers to measure.  Although I, personally, haven't quite gotten into it, there are millions of people doing it, and products popping up left and right.  A study by Trendrr, in fact, measure over 21 million people checking into SpongeBob Squarepants!  There's even a bit of money being thrown around by investors at the technology, so it's definitely something that I'm keeping my eye on.  I have started a running list of Social TV Check-In Applications.  Take a look at the list and please comment if I've missed one, or one breaks out after posting this article.  Here's the list in no particular order:  

  1. Clicker (www.clicker.com)
  2. GetGlue (www.getglue.com)
  3. Miso (www.gomiso.com)
  4. Philo (playphilo.com)
