The New York Times (NYT) is launching its “TimesPeople” social network tonight, which lets you recommend stories to your friends and see what they’re recommending and commenting on — a useful, unintrusive feature that makes sense.
You’ll also be able to share ratings/reviews of movies, shows, restaurants, and hotels; get RSS feeds of your friends’ activity; or sync your activity to Facebook via the TimesPeople app. (Looks like it’s still in the process of getting switched on at 7:30 p.m. ET; your mileage may vary.)
The company has been testing the product as a Firefox plugin since June; now it’ll be baked into the Times’ site.
