Facebook Connect has been around for a while now. And in Internet years, The Huffington Post has been around forever. Both have core strengths – social networking and news, respectively. So to marry them and give birth to Social News, makes sense.
This brainchild – HuffPost’s version of a digital water cooler – debuts today.
As I write this post, the HuffPost’s social news experiment has only 760 users in its community. But with nearly 1.7 million comments on the site alone last month, the chances are high that the hypothesis – the project will get more interesting as more friends join – will be proven.
