Gamefly Launches Facebook Beacon


Gamefly users now have the option to tell the world what they’re renting. The new feature works only if you’re logged onto both sites and only if you set your Facebook privacy options to allow Gamefly to update your profile.

Providing you allow it, the following events can all be recorded in your mini-feed or news feed on Facebook: rating games, adding titles to your queue, buying games or gift certificates and receiving notifications when friends join Gamefly.

This is the first major enhancement to the Gamefly website since they significantly updated their queue management controls earlier this year. To learn more about Gamefly’s rental plans and the new Facebook Beacon, visit
