To: Our readers and viewers
From: Editor-in-Chief Jennifer Sizemore
We know you’re passionate about the stories you read and watch on msnbc.com, and for many of you, the information you consume is actually a big part of who you are. And the stories your friends read and watch can open new worlds and provide even more new insights. So, we’ve built a new social app for Facebook Timeline that is designed for people who want to easily share what they’re reading and/or watching with their friends.
It is an entirely optional experience: You will need to choose to install this capability, and once you do, you can always edit your settings to selectively share, or turn off sharing altogether. As you begin to experience what your friends are consuming, watch for your favorite writers’ names too – they’ll be signed up and if you’re following them, you’ll see what they’re reading and watching in your feed too.
And for those of you who prefer to read, watch and share in your own way – of course, please keep doing so! Nothing will change for you, except that we’re now showing you a few “most-shared” headlines along with all the editor-chosen headlines on our home page.
If you have more questions, please check out the Q&A below, and feel free to use the mailbag below to give us feedback.
I look forward to hearing from you,
