CBC adds SeenThis? to website

CBC.ca has added a new social networking tool to its list of tools for users. Broadcaster magazine reports that cbc.ca users will now be able to share and recommend items on the site through SeenThis?, a tool created by Loomia that is currently used by NBC Universal, the Wall Street Journal and CNET Networks.

CBCnews.ca and CBCsports.ca users can use the tool to find articles, blog posts and videos that are popular with friends, like-minded readers as well as groups from external sites such as Facebook. The New York Times recently added a similar platform, TimesPeople to its site.
