Do you GetGlue?

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Have you ever heard of GetGlue? No? Don't worry. We didn't know what GetGlue was either until a Fox 5 producer saw it all over a Twitter feed.

GetGlue markets itself as a personalized digital TV guide. The website recommends shows and movies based on your preferences. It allows you to chat with friends while you're watching not just your favorite fox hits like "The Following" or "Sleepy Hollow," but all shows.

"GetGlue is basically FourSquare for television," says Chris Harnick, HuffPost TV beat reporter. "It's a way to check in and show your friends what you're watching."

The site boasts 800 million total check-ins, ratings and reviews with 4 million users. And GetGlue was created right in New York City.

"You check in on the GetGlue app and then you can get exclusive content like stickers or other rewards," Harnick says. You can even earn more perks, like early screenings.

Union Square Ventures is one of GetGlue's major investors, which is why we came to Union Square. No one here had heard of GetGlue. But that didn't stop them from giving us their take on what feels like an internet overload.

Krishna Kripa says he gave up his computer science career ambitions 30 years ago when he left Brown University to become a Hare Krishna. He doesn't use the GetGlue app. Of course not; he's too busy finding some peace of mind.
