Philo
Former ABC and RDF reality exec Greg Goldman has helped found Philo, a just-launched TV-centric social networking site.

“Overall, numbers for programming like the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics is up,” Goldman said. “And it’s because of social media. It’s the way people are consuming TV now.”

Philo updates can be synced with Facebook and Twitter, where users can share what they’re watching.
