From the CBC Canada website:

Social TV is a huge buzzword in the TV world these days. Basically, it refers to the ways people are using social media in conjunction with their TV viewing. That might refer to something as simple as checking your Twitter feed on your phone while watching a political debate. It might also include joining a social network oriented around media discovery, like GetGlue, or Miso, where you can find out what your friends think of shows, or be notified when they are watching something. It had us wondering what impact Social TV will have on the way programmers design shows, and whether we’re returning to gathering in the living room watching I Love Lucy, only virtually. Marie-Jose Montpetit is a research scientist at the Research Lab of Electronics at MIT, where she researches putting video on multiple devices and combining it with social networking components.
