Sony has just launched a significant update to its 2011 line of Bravia TVs that adds a few new social networking features as well as video content.  To start with, you'll be getting YouTube HD so you can catch up on your favorite web series and cat videos.  If you want to share those videos, you can do so via the new Facebook app.

There are two other less traditional applications that may pique the interest of some users.  First, there's a Twitter feed.  Turning this option on will create a scrolling feed at the bottom of your set that will show recent Twitter updates.  This could be something that's really cool for big football games, the Oscars and other big events.  The other new feature that really stands out is the ability to control your TV from a laptop, as well as enter text using the laptop keyboard.  With all the smartphone and tablet controls out there, it's surprising this isn't more common.
