Hollywoodnews.com: It could be a marriage made in media heaven. Facebook, the social media giant, is in talks for a partnership with video streamer Netflix that a create a tool that allows users to share their favorite TV shows, news, music and more.

It is a step by Facebook to advance beyond the sharing of personal memories such as photos and video clips. Analysts told the N.Y. Times that the social media company’s move “was part of its ambition to become a hub for all types of activities on the Internet” because its users “increasingly define themselves through the media they consume.”

“We’re always looking for better ways to help people discover the most relevant content on Facebook but have nothing to announce,” the company said in a statement.

In addition to Netflix, Facebook is exploring partnerships with other media services that could help people share music and movies.
