I happen to follow a few new applications closely, and this news is exciting from the Digital Editions blog. It seems to me that most applications these days should have a social component. Send an email, blog it, share it, IM a friend or collaborator, post it to del.icio.us, these are the features that enable an application to move well beyond the features it was designed for, enabling creativity and flexibility among users. Maybe Google's new Open Social could be used to spread the fun to the widest reaches. Eh?
Digital Editions will be introducing new social features in the future that will enhance the use and enjoyment of user’s ebooks, such as sharing annotations and reading lists.
