Will You Use HuffPo’s New Social News Service?

Today, the Huffington Post announced a new venture with Facebook called HuffPost Social News, which allows you to share HuffPo stories, news and comments with your friends through Facebook.

According to our sister blog WebNewser, HuffPost Social News will allow its users to “automatically create personalized profile pages; keep track of their HuffPost Social News friends; retain control over stories and comments shared with their Social News friends and on their Facebook Walls and Facebook streams; learn how their friends are voting on HuffPost polls; and see contributions to Eyes & Ears, HuffPost’s citizen-journalism platform.”

In short, All Things Digital’s Kara Swisher called the venture Facebook Connect on steroids.

So with other aggregation sites like Digg and Google Reader allowing you to share the things that you find important with your friends already — and through Facebook, too — we wanted to know: will you use HuffPost Social News?

Take our poll and let us know what you think in the comments. If you’re not planning to use it, what other sites do you use to share stories with your friends?
