Ticketmaster Lets You Sit With Facebook Friends 58

An anonymous reader writes "Ticketmaster has added Facebook integration to its interactive seat maps. The new feature allows you to share your live event plans by tagging yourself into your seat, and thus allowing your Facebook friends to see where you are sitting. If you have already purchased tickets for an event, you can also tag yourself at a later date."

    > I despise TicketMaster
    Monopolies rarely engender good will. But unlike, say, taxes, at least you get a service you really want and nobody puts a gun to your head.

    I absolutely can not believe that it took some stupid facebook integration bs to actually get this done. It's ridiculous that ticketmaster hasn't allowed you to choose seats all along. Every time I get tickets, you get to choose from 1 of 3 broad regions (main floor, lower bowl, and upper bowl). That's it. You can't even choose a specific section, much less a row or seat. A few months ago, a friend wanted tickets for a specific section of the arena, and we actually had to wait 4 days before enough tickets had sold that it began selling in the section he wanted. That's absolutely ridiculous.

    > I get services I want from my taxes
    Good point. But I also get services I don't want. Like warrantless surveillance, elective wars, debt, and wall street bailouts. And if one looks at the distribution of taxes, one can see that the things I don't want are where the bulk of the taxes go.

    > it's actually still an amazing bargain.
    Where do you live?

    > you might want to live in some free for all
    > capitalist utopia
    Then again, I might not. I'd settle for a place where the gov't obeys the law and the people can change the law. You know of a place like that, do let me know.
