USA Today launched over the weekend, several layers of social Web 2.0 features to their site.
Some of the features include:
- Commenting on articles
- Digg-like feature where you can "recommend" a story
- User profiles named "personal space" with Avatars
- Photo submission area via "Shutter speed"
- A "Community Center" to keep up with friends
- More searching
This is a big step for a major news publisher, and I am sure many will follow suit.
