Sling Media is joining the list of Facebook partners keen to make their product social. The new player allows you to access and control your TV from inside the social network, effectively providing the same service as Sling.com with some sharing features baked in. At the moment that only consists of a status bar which lets you share your thoughts on what you're watching in the same tab as the video, but Sling says that both the release of the player and the addition of more social and sharing elements will be coming soon. While there may not be much for this particular version of the player to set itself apart from the previous web version, Sling Media says its goal is to simply have its content available in as many places as possible.
