New York – The New York Times has added the ability for
readers to log in to its website using their Facebook accounts. The feature
will not replace current site registration, but will — if users opt-in to add
the new feature — show stories that a user’s Facebook friends have liked or
commented on at NYTimes.com. Meanwhile, The Times will be able to post status
messages, notes, photos and videos on the Facebook Walls of users who opt-in.
