Late last week the Washington Post launched a light social networking component called My Post. The feature allows users to create a profile that will be linked to whenever a user comments on a Post article. The profile includes personal information about the user and aggregators all of a user’s comments. The feature also includes the ability send private messages to other users, make other users your “friend” and to recommend the posts of other users.

A screenshot of a profile is below and you can view a profile page here. Note that this feature is powered by Pluck’s Sitelife software, the same package used to power the social features on (although the Post version has less features).
