NBC's Heroes cross into Habbo :  NBC.com and teen virtual world Habbo have created Syn Anders, a new virtual character tied to Heroes Evolutions, the digital-spinoff of Heroes. Habbo members can complete quests and other in-world activities with Anders, and the avatar will appear in new chapters of the Heroes digital graphic novels. This is the second major TV crossover for Habbo; the company announced a deal with American Idol two weeks ago. 

Hulu content on LivingSocial : Digital media discovery tool and social network LivingSocial has launched a TV shows category powered by Hulu; members can watch, review, share and organize videos from the NBCU/Fox JV. 

Share videos with Neurotrash.tv : Add another video-sharing site to the roster: LA-based NT Media has rolled out Neurotrash.tv, a hub for user-generated and "prosumer" video. The site has the requisite profile-creation and commenting features; users can also port clips to external social nets and blogs. Currently there are about 2,000 videos on the site; the company says it will initially offer banner and in-stream video ads. Release.
