Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports on the adoption of social bookmarking services by The New York Times.
The New York Times unveiled a new service today that allows readers to quickly post stories that they find on the newspaper’s Web site to Digg, Facebook and Newsvine.
It marks the first time that the country’s third-largest newspaper has added a news-sharing tool to its Web site, allowing readers to develop conversations and post comments about specific stories. Readers will be able to add headlines and a small portion of text to the social media sites by clicking on the logos of Digg, Facebook and Newsvine. Those logos began appearing next to The Times’ stories this morning in the same box as the print and e-mail tools, although they’re initially hidden until users click the “Share” link.
