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
  • Tagging
  • More searching

This is a big step for a major news publisher, and I am sure many will follow suit.
