Is Viral marketing in Social networking a factor in Flixster's growth?

According to an article on American Venture Magazine, Flixster- American Venture Exclusive Interview Outlines the means and ways of it's growth.

"In little more than a year, the San Francisco-based site has grown from zero to 9 million registered users and over 300 million movie reviews. In part, Flixster accomplished this by creating a highly interactive site with seemingly endless diversions.

Such practices might include the automated selection of your email account's entire address book in order to send a Flixster invitation to all of your contacts."
