TimesPeople is a pretty neat-sounding social networking plugin for the New York Times website -- the thing I like about it is how lightweight it is. It's not trying to get you dates or make friends, it's just trying to use the people you trust to help you find good stuff.
TimesPeople is a social network for Times readers. But it's not a social network like Facebook or MySpace – you won't have Times friends, and it won't get you Times dates. Instead, you'll assemble a network of Times readers. Then you'll be able to share interesting things on NYTimes.com with others in the network. For example, when you recommend an article, comment on a blog post, or rate a movie or restaurant, these activities will become visible to other TimesPeople members in a special toolbar at the top of every NYTimes.com page. You'll also have a personal page that keeps track of your TimesPeople activities and lets you browse your network of readers.
TimesPeople is a great way to discover things on NYTimes.com that you might not otherwise have found and to share your discoveries with people you know and trust. It's also a way to connect with other Times readers whose recommendations interest you.
