Reading With Friends: Welcome HuffPost's New Social Reader for Facebook

We're excited to team up with Facebook to bring you the latest in HuffPost Social News: The Huffington Post Social Reader.

The HuffPost Social Reader is a one-stop-shop on Facebook that lets you and your friends easily see and share all of your HuffPost activities, from your favorite stories to the slideshows you're voting on. It's an amazing real-time app that keeps you updated how your community of friends is enjoying HuffPost. And it all happens without ever having to leave Facebook.

The HuffPost Social Reader is the online version of the communal "living room," where sharing and commenting on stories is not only encouraged, but essential to the reading experience. Only now, instead of couches and a fireplace, we're making it possible to share from wherever you are -- and on whatever device. It's never been so easy to debate the news of the day or be the first person in your circle to discover and share those funny, viral articles, videos, songs, pix and more.

For the first time, friends will be able to see what you're doing on HuffPost and engage with you as you're doing it. And don't worry, if you're not comfortable sharing, you can continue experiencing HuffPost without your activities being broadcast on Facebook, since HuffPost Social Reader includes privacy controls that you can set to your own comfort level. After all, it's your living room.

We hope you'll have as much fun experiencing the HuffPost Social Reader as we did making it.
