NY Times gets social with Times People

Fans of the NY Times will welcome this morning's online edition.

The newspaper has added, yes, an integral on-site social network for you to interact with other readers and comment on articles.

Dubbed 'Times People', the new social network is aimed at connecting readers of the NY times and engaging them in the newspaper's content.

We've seen quite a few cross-media plays in social and microblogging circles the past few weeks.  It'll be interesting to see how the NY Times does with this new addition.

The new 'Times People' section is now live and can be accessed here.
