Elena Haliczer: HuffPost Launches Social Reading App for Facebook Timeline At the Huffington Post, we're all about starting conversations. It's why we launched Social News with Facebook in 2009, enabling our users to read and share stories as instantly as you would discuss a story in a newspaper at the kitchen table -- still one of our favorite things about reading newspapers together with friends. Today, we're doubling down on that commitment to real-time sharing and engagement with the HuffPost Social Reading app for Facebook timeline. This app will take the reading experience to the next level, allowing you to share stories, start conversations and keep up with what your friends are reading -- only now, your Facebook timeline will be a place to share news with your friends, while Facebook News Feed and Ticker will help you discover new Huffington Post content through your friends.
Rev. Al Sharpton: Don't Discount the Underdog Every day we walk past or ignore another Jeremy Lin -- people who may not look like what society deems a 'winner.' But given the right circumstances, these folks would shine; there's a Lin in every school, church, job. You may be ignored, but never lose sight of your own strengths and abilities.
