ABC has come up with a clever way to use Facebook Connect to advertise its new television series, FlashForward.
The new sci-fi drama takes photos and your friends' names from your Facebook profile and turns this information into a mini movie intro -- about your own future, the theme of the show.
The show centers around an apparently global event where everyone in the world blacked out for 2 minutes and 17 seconds, during which time each person caught a glimpse of his or her life 6 months into the future. In it, the world tries to piece together what everyone saw in the future, a "mosaic." The Connect integration, called the FlashForward Experience, is a nice addition to the series premiere last week, which itself is getting a lot of praise on its Facebook page.
